Travel Without Turista? Diarrhea Vaccine Makes Progress..., 1 April 2001 [cached]
Shigella, E. coli, and Campylobacter are three major pathogens, according to Alberto Acosta, MD, director of the Traveler's Medical clinic in New York City, but they are "only a piece of the big picture."Many other nasty bugs can contaminate food and water, such as Norwalk-type viruses, which cause severe gastroenteritis (nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea).
Clinics like Acosta's and Helfgott's pass on CDC travel-health recommendations to people who come in for the vaccinations and prescriptions they need overseas.
According to the CDC, tea and coffee--which are made with boiled water--beer, wine, and canned or bottled carbonated beverages are safe to drink when you are travelling in a country where the water may be contaminated.It is not safe to eat any raw fruits or vegetables, or unpasteurized milk and milk products.
