2. Food Poisoning

Food poisoning occurs when a person eats contaminated food. The most common sources include staphylococcus aureus, salmonella, clostridium perfringens, salmonella, botulism and E. coli. Although the accompanying symptoms vary, many food poisoning types cause some nausea.

Other than stomach upset, patients may have stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhea and fever. Most cases of food poisoning don’t require medical attention. However, anyone experiencing a high fever, bloody diarrhea or dehydration should contact their doctor.3‘Food Poisoning Symptoms.’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 9 Mar. 2021, www.cdc.gov/foodsafety/symptoms.html.
