With the Holiday season comes travel to see friends and family. For some, this includes international travel. However, international travelers that stay with friends and family are more likely to become ill. For example, visitors staying with friends and family are 8 to 10 times more likely to become infected with malaria as tourists. For dealing with malaria, visitors need to start taking malaria medication before leaving for their international destination. There is also a greater chance of food borne illness, as family and friends have immunity to local bacteria that visitors do not. Even though you might be staying with friends and family, still take precautions about what you eat. See the article below for more information on how to protect yourself while traveling to see loved ones.
