Stomach infections can
wreck a holiday - Some advice on how to survive.
Some serious conditions
start with what seems like a bout of diarrhea so make sure you see a
doctor or pharmacist if you feel ill.
If stricken with tummy bugs,
particularly in foreign parts starve yourself for one or (preferably)
two days. Drink plenty of safe, mineral rich drinks. – resume eating
non-protein foods (such as fruit or French fries). A safe animal
protein source to start eating again is chicken. After experiencing
illness while on holiday it is wise to consult your Doctor upon your

160 degrees F). This is the temperature that egg yolks start to set.
