food poisoning definition and meaning

What is "food poisoning"?

Food poisoning is an illness that happens when you eat food contaminated with harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or toxins. It can cause symptoms such as stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. The symptoms can start soon after eating contaminated food or may take several hours or days to appear, depending on the type of germ involved. Most cases of food poisoning are mild and resolve on their own within a few days with rest and drinking plenty of fluids to stay hydrated. However, in severe cases, medical attention may be needed to prevent dehydration or complications.
