To prevent foodborne illness from happening to you or your family, it is important to practice food safety protocols while handling, preparing, and storing all of your meals.

If you want to enjoy a good life, it’s imperative to take care of your health first. That said, you must take into consideration how likely you are to suffer from a certain condition.
