By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The National Meteorological Service of Belize has advised residents that a heat Alert is in effect today.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness urged that while we may focus on keeping our bodies cool and safe, please also be aware of the increase incidences of food spoilage because of the increase temperatures and improper storage practices we take for granted leading to food borne diseases with symptoms like Diarrhea.

Most foodborne diseases like gastroenteritis, an infection with symptoms such as watery diarrhea and stomach cramps, is preventable with proper food handling and hygiene.

The Ministry reminds that we all play a role in maintaining food safety from the farm to homes and restaurants. Food safety is everyone’s business.
