Weekly Health Tips
When traveling to a foreign country where sanitation standards are different from home, the following may help prevent traveler's diarrhea. Drink only bottled water and beverages. Use bottled water, not tap water, to rinse off food, to brush your teeth or to make ice. Avoid ice in drinks when ordering out. Stick to fruits and vegetables that you can peel yourself (bananas, oranges, avocados) or cooked vegetables. Avoid salads and fruits such as grapes and berries. Don't eat raw or undercooked meat or seafood or unpasteurized dairy products. Avoid food from street vendors. Use a hand sanitizer before meals.
