 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Avoiding and Recovering from Food Borne Illnesses

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year, roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. Food at parties and family gatherings is often left sitting at room temperature for too long. Four hours or more is plenty of time for dangerous levels of bacteria to develop in mayonnaise-based salads. Turkey and chicken can be a significant source of salmonella. Even unwashed fruit, lettuce and uncooked spinach can harbor E. coli.

To protect ourselves, the CDC recommends washing produce and refrigerating unused portions, refrigerating leftovers promptly if they are not eaten within four hours of being served and dividing large volumes of food into several shallow containers for quicker cooling.

Several studies on enhanced aqueous silver colloid in vitro suggest that the supplement may offer protection from the major bacteria that cause food poisoning: E. coli, salmonella and staphylococcus. Nature’s Rite Remedies, a natural supplements’ company based in Sarasota, claims that drinking one ounce of aqueous silver colloid, waiting 30 minutes and then drinking another ounce can destroy the bacteria that cause food poisoning without antibiotics. Company owner Stephen Frank, an herbalist, says that results of using aqueous silver colloid against the antibiotic-resistant Salmonella typhi prompted its delivery to numerous health clinics in Haiti.
