2. Eating Bad Food
is a reason why people get giardia because people mishandle food. They don’t wear gloves or a hairnet. When they serve food to customers, the customers end up getting sick. Food handlers may be hesitant to wash their hands after they leave the restroom or wipe their noses because they are on a time schedule and have to be fast to wait on customers.
Most people eat a lot of raw vegetables and fruit and don’t wash them off properly. Raw vegetables and fruit are irrigated and cleaned with bad water. In order to avoid getting giardia, it is a good idea to wash raw vegetables and fruit with bottled water. If at all possible, cook all vegetables because when food is cooked it gets rid of any necessary parasites left on food. It’s important to cook food all the way. Half done food can still have parasites that can enter the body.
