High-risk groups for food-borne illnesses
Aside from storage, cooking, and preparation of food, the age and health of the person eating it is also a very important factor in acquiring food-borne illnesses. There are three high-risk groups:
- Older adults. Adults 60 years old and above generally have weaker immune systems than younger persons and may not be able to ward off infectious micro-organisms as well.
- Infants and younger children. A weaker immune system is also a factor for them, especially since children and toddlers are prone to putting objects in their mouths, making them very susceptible to bacterial infections.
- People with chronic diseases. Having a chronic disease that compromises your immune system (AIDS, cancer) can also affect your ability to fight off infections and other similar diseases.
