SEATTLE, Washington (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) A lot of people will
probably get drunk on New Years Eve, but some may not
realize their hangover is really food poisoning.
According to Seattle-based dietician Lola ORourke, New
Years Eve is a risky night for getting food poisoning,
especially if the party hosts are trying to use up Christmas
ORourke says nuts and chips are usually safe but
figures Swedish meatballs might be tainted if they havent
been frozen properly or have been left on a heated buffet table
for more than two hours.
Part of the problem is misdiagnosis. ORourke says some
people might mistake their vomiting or stomach cramps the next
day for a hangover. However, she says food poisoning is more
likely to have intestinal symptoms than from mere drunkenness.
Although some people might think that alcoholic cocktails
might kill the bacteria causing the tummy trouble, ORourke
says its ...never a good idea to get drunk on
Is That A New Years Hangover Or Food Poisoning?
