What happens to people if their food hygiene is poor?
poor food hygiene leads to malnutrition.... your body requires vitamins and protein to grow and maintain good health. people can develop many medical problems. your teeth suffer. your bones can get weak. with anemia - low iron- you are often tired, weak, easily bruised. low vitamin b-12 can cause nervous system problems.
if you eat too many fatty foods you can have problems with weight, clogged arteries, eventually heart disease.
if you eat foods (meat, eggs, vegtables) that aren't prepared or cooked properly you are subject to disease from bacteria-- saminella ... mad cow disease...
The people who eat the food, obviously. Additional thought... Most food safety courses point out that the very young, the elderly and the immunocompromised are most at risk from poor food hygiene practices. A robust, healthy individual can often deal with and/or fight off the effects of foodborne pathogens. The very young, elderly and immunocompromised are less able to do so.
hygiene was severly poor, due to the poor hygiene diseases like cholera and influenza spread very quickly and consequnetly killed 1 in 20 british people in the 1500's. sewage often flowed down the streets with people having to walk through it. it was said that more people married in may and June as these were the times when the poor had their yearly baths!
Well mainly because someone with a poor hygiene is more likely to have a unhealthy immune system. And as you know someone with a poor immune system is an easy target for diseases to infect. And since we are talking about a whole community of people; so if one of them catch it, it will spread faster in that country than it will in a place with a good hygiene.
poor diet & poor hygiene affect a civil war solider? Since the soldiers living conditions were so bad and they didn't have clean water and they didn't shower like they were supposed to. and more than likely there was no healthy food to eat & the soldier's didn't get the right amounts of vitamin C potassium, whole grain.
