Say 'No way!' to traveler's diarrhea

If you eat food or drink water contaminated with bacteria, like E. coli, you're likely to get a bad case of diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. It's not usually life-threatening, but it can certainly be uncomfortable.

Although you can be infected with these bacteria almost anywhere, less-developed countries without modern sewage and water treatment facilities are especially risky. In fact, the illness is so common in popular vacation destinations like Mexico and Central and South America, that it's knows as traveler's diarrhea.

If you don't want to be the next victim of Montezuma's revenge, practice these travel tips :

Don't use tap water for drinking or brushing your teeth. Buy bottled water.

Before eating, clean your hands with packaged wipes or antiseptic cleanser, not tap water.

Drink bottled water, boiled coffee or tea, carbonated drinks, beer, or wine only.

Order your drinks without ice.

Eat fruits, like bananas, you can peel yourself.

Don't eat raw vegetables or salads. Eat thoroughly cooked, hot food.

Buy food and drinks from reputable restaurants and hotels, not street vendors.

Pack some bromelain, a pineapple enzyme that may block E. coli.
