One of the best things about visiting new countries is sampling the local delicacies. This could be snails in Paris or shellfish in Thailand (and everything in between). You want to be able to enjoy and sample all the food.
Recent figures have shown that 6 out of 10 British people will fall ill on holiday each year with around 600 suffering from serious food poisoning.
Below are some tips to avoid making sure that the places you intend to visit on your trip do not include the local Doctors or hospital.

We are now at the start of the Summer and for most of us we love going out in the sun. There is always the feel good factor when the sun comes out.
For many of us when we have the lovely hot weather (and no rain!) we will generally be outside. It is a very sociable time and you could be attending a picnic, enjoying some of the many summer festivals, visiting the local beach soaking up the sun,, around at families and friends for a BBQ or even just taking it nice and easy.
For some people the hot weather proves problematic.
While the sun brings out our fun side for some people they end up suffering from prickly heat, (which is often referred to as either ‘milaria rubra’ or ‘heat rash)
We are all aware that drinking fizzy drinks – particular the ‘non diet’ variety that they are full of sugar and excess calories. So for many of us (including me) we try to go for the ‘no calorie or no sugar’ options. By doing this we think we are making a wise choice but often that is not the case.
I have been drinking far too many of these diet fizzy drinks and doing this research I was not aware of how bad these ‘diet fizzy drinks’ are and wanted to share this with you.
The no calorie no sugar option of a fizzy drink may seem like a healthy option. Let’s face it can save you over 140 calories per can (depending on the option you choose) and this will also satisfy your craving for something sweet…but this can will contain several different types of artificial sweeteners which can include aspartame, saccharin, and sucrose.
Drinking these types of fizzy drinks is fine if just one or two cans a day but what happens if you like several cans of this type of fizzy drinks a day. There can be more to this enhanced cocktail than meets the eye.
