Frequenting restaurants ups risk of food poisoning

Do you frequently eat outside? If the answer is yes then read this article as a new study has found that people who eat at restaurants are more at risk of suffering from food poisoning that those who prefer to eat at home.

The researchers studied 10,408 food poisoning outbreaks based on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The study was conducted by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) and the researchers analyzed cases from 2002 through 2011.

According to government data, over 1,610 food poisoning cases took place over the nine-year period and over 28,000 people fell ill after eating in restaurants, while 893 outbreaks sickened about 13,000 people who did not go outside to eat.

The findings show that it is safer to eat at home because the risk of food poisoning gets reduce by half.

CSPI researchers claimed that food poisoning cases are likely to be much higher than reported.

"Underreporting of outbreaks has reached epidemic proportions. Yet the details gleaned from outbreak investigations provide essential information so public health officials can shape food safety policy and make science-based recommendations to consumers", said Caroline Smith DeWaal, the CSPI food safety director.

The CSPI officials said that roughly one in six Americans gets sick and 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die due to food-borne diseases each year.
