(HealthDay News) — Since people with cancer typically have a weakened immune system, they may be at greater risk of contracting foodborne illness.
Foodsafety.gov suggests these steps to stay protected against food poisoning:
- Wash hands and surfaces often.
- Separate raw meat and poultry from ready-to-eat foods.
- Cook food to the right temperature.
- Refrigerate or freeze raw meat and poultry, and cooked food within two hours.
