Ways of Preventing Intake of Harmful Substances

– Check the Freshness: Always make sure your food is fresh and not stale.

– Proper Cooking: Eat food that is cooked well. Undercooked food can have germs.

– Say No to Rotten Food: Never eat food that looks or smells bad.

– Watch for Bugs: Don’t eat food if you see insects or worms in it.

– Check the Date: Look at the ‘best before’ dates on food and medicine. If it’s expired, don’t use it.

– Doctor’s Advice: Only take medicines that your doctor tells you to take.

– Ripe and Ready: Eat fruits that are ripe and ready to eat. Unripe fruits can upset your stomach.
