Check your eating habits:
In the summer months, the bacteria and germs can be the cause for contamination in food. Diseases caused due to the presence of bacteria get mixed in with eating vegetables, food items, drinking water if handled with dirty hands. People think that by storing raw vegetables in the refrigerator, they will be able to save them against contamination.
On the contrary end, the fact is one uses the refrigerator several times in a day. Most importantly, a couple of times the hands are unhygienic when he/she uses the fridge. The veggies and fruits or other eatable items kept in the refrigerator gets infected with the bacteria, when the person’s touches them.
In the absence of cautiousness against germs, and moreover these activities can lead the person towards diseases such as Diarrhea, Typhoid, Hepatitis (A & B), Jaundice etc. Therefore, whenever you eat food or cook, you must wash your hands properly. The number of times, you have to touch or handle food items, each time you must wash your hands before even touching it.
Often during summer months, people prefer eating or like to order food using home delivery from nearby hotels. People hesitate to cook food at home. Primarily, I will not suggest you to eat outside or have fast food every so often. It is significant that you don’t make it a habit. On the other hand, occasionally going outside and having lunch or dinner isn’t bad for health at all.
However, there are certain points which are vital and should be followed by everyone before picking a restaurant or hotel. Initially, if you doubt a restaurant for its cleanliness quality, you should directly take it out from your list.
The hotel or restaurant should be deselected irrespective of its name & fame. Then again, if you are at a restaurant for an occasional meal, then it’s important that you search for a place where you can wash your hands before eating.
You should go and have a word with the hotel staff. Ask them about the cleanliness of the utensils used with cooking & then after used for food serving.
Beware! Don’t eat outside at open trolleys or at some unhygienic shop.
