Food Poisoning Increases Heart Attack Rise

An Ontario study examined the long-term effects of 2300 people who suffered from a food-bearing outbreak of E.Coli. Those who developed several days of diarrhea had a 340% increased risk of kidney problems, a 210% increased risk of heart attack and a 33% increased risk of hypertension. Many of the subjects had only minor symptoms of the acute illness. So if you have ever had food poisoning, be on the alert for these problems down the road. No therapy was suggested by the study, but I would think that milk thistle to detox and chelation to preserve heart and kidney function should be considered. See the Walkerton Health Study reported in the April 2012 issue of Scientific American.
