Health Tip: Prevent Travelers' Diarrhea

(HealthDay News) -- A vacation or business trip to a developing country can lead to a nasty case of travelers' diarrhea -- if you're not careful.

The U.S. National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases offers this advice on what to avoid during travel to developing nations:

  • Drinking tap water.
  • Using tap water to make ice, prepare foods or drinks or brush your teeth.
  • Drinking juice or milk products that have not been pasteurized -- heated to kill harmful microbes, viruses, bacteria and parasites.
  • Eating food from street vendors.
  • Eating meat, fish or shellfish that is raw, undercooked or not served hot.
  • Eating raw vegetables and most raw fruits.
