We’ve all heard of the phrase, “the stomach
bug,” but do you know what is a major ,worldwide cause of a lot of your unpleasant symptoms?
I’m Rachelle Grossman with your latest health news. New research from the CDC shows that
in many cases, the diarrhea and vomiting might be norovirus. CDC researchers reviewed a number
of past studies related to stomach troubles or gastroenteritis, and they found that norovirus
was behind nearly one-fifth of all cases. To prevent spreading norovirus, the CDC recommends
you avoiding preparing food or caring for others when you are sick and that your wash
your hands thoroughly before eating or handling food.
