Be cautious : Of where st what you eat. When you eat out make sure your trust the food preparation and staff hygiene. Avoid ordering raw or under cooked foods. At home wash your produce well. Don't use the same cutting boards for meats as you do veggies. Wash your cutlery well. Cook your food thoroughly.
