What Causes Food Poisoning?

default
Posted on Tue, 6 Sep 2016
Question: Hello Doctor
My father has this problem of Food Poisoning which he gets almost every month. He takes all the precautions, which includes eating hygienic food, drinking clean water, but sometimes ends up eating from some of the food joints outside which is then followed by food poisoning, and is often accompanied by Vomiting and Diarrhea. And he ends up consuming a lot of antibiotics, which ultimately ends the suffering. We have been unable to find the root cause for this. Please assist here.
Thanks
doctor
