Travel Safely

When you're traveling, follow these helpful tips to reduce health problems away from home. Watch what you eat and drink. This means you should eat only fully cooked hot meals, and be careful of eating raw fruits and veggies (wash them in clean water and peel them yourself). Also, don't consume unpasteurized dairy products, pass on ice in beverages and drink liquids from bottles with unbroken seals. What's more, use insect repellent to avoid bug bites, don't touch animals and wash your hands often with soap and water, or use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
