Living and Loving - - BABY & TODDLER -

Dr Ed­in­burg ex­plains the main dif­fer­ence be­tween stom­ach flu and food poi­son­ing is that food poi­son­ing is usu­ally dra­matic. “It of­ten af­fects a group of peo­ple who may have eaten the same foods, there is a rapid on­set of symp­toms and the cause is usu­ally bac­te­rial. With stom­ach flu, there will be re­ports of the con­di­tion in the com­mu­nity.”
