Travel Health Tips: Food Precautions


♪ [music] ♪ Remember: boil it, peel it, or forget it. You travel internationally to
experience cultural differences. One of those is exotic foods, which
can be both a pleasure and an ordeal. Did you know that contaminated
food and water might not look bad, taste bad, or even smell bad? With poor sanitation conditions,
undercooking methods, lack of refrigeration, food overexposed
to the elements or unguarded from insects and rodents could be your worst nightmare. Follow these good rules
to reduce your risks. Avoid raw fish, most seafood and
salads, unpasteurized dairy products. Select restaurants that prepare
fresh food served while hot. Avoid street vendors and market foods. ♪ [music] ♪
