Re; Warding off travelers diarrhea
Posted on Jul 02, 2013 by
I have travelled quite extensively in East and South East Asia and have avoided `belly bugs` by following the common tenents of other Australian travellers to these regions. Never drink water that has not been boiled. Bottled water that has not been tampered with is also OK.
In China we also tried to avoid eating fruit that had not been peeled.
This has been totally effective exept on one occasion when visiting a night market in Penang (Malasia) I and my colleagues forgot ourselves and bought ourselves delicious lemon and ice drinks served in plastic bags. A good reminder that freezing does not kill all the bacteria that matter. We were sick as dogs for three days.
