If you are the kind of family who enjoy eating restaurant food more often than usual then you may be at a higher risk of getting food poisoning.
As per the findings of a new study people who eat out regularly have a higher chance of getting food poisoning as compared to those who eat at home.
The study was based on observing about 10,408 food poisoning cases recorded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The research was done by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).
Apart from these cases the analysts also compared other cases of food poisoning from the year 2002 to 2011.
Figures with the government confirm that more than 1,610 food poisoning cases happened during the nine years and more than 28,000 people were hospitalised after food poisoning due to restaurant food as compared to just 893 outbreaks affected about 13,000 people with food poisoning who didn’t go out to eat.
Clearly these comparisons made show that people who dine out often are more exposed to infections and home cooked food is much safer to eat.
