15 signs that you might be an alcoholic #infographic

Alcoholism is a serious illness that can affect from your health, to your work, social and family life. Though alcohol is a part of many social interactions nowadays, its continued consumption can become a severe problem. Precisely because we are used to seeing people drink alcoholic beverages in many acceptable contexts, we don’t condemn alcoholism as we do other drug addictions. Nonetheless, alcoholism is, in fact, an addiction that can destroy yours and your loved ones’ life if left untreated.

That’s why it’s very important to detect it on time. Identifying the problem is the first step to recovery. For that purpose, Addiction to Sobriety has created the following infographic, which lists 15 common warning signs in people suffering from alcoholism. If you feel that you or one of your loved ones fits in the described attitudes or situations, you should look for treatment. Continued rehab and effort is the only way to keep this addiction in check.

Food Poisoning: A Common Problem In The U.S #infographic

Food poisoning is a common problem in the U.S. Every year 50 million Americans (1 in 6) fall ill due to food poisoning. What’s more, 3.000 people die and 128.000 are hospitalized yearly for having eaten contaminated food. Food poisoning can take place at any stage of the food chain, from production to preparation. And the most common food groups to lead to poisoning are produce, meat, poultry, dairy, eggs, fish and shellfish.

Since this kind of illness only presents itself several hours or days after the ingestion of contaminated food and is generally followed by mild symptoms, suing the restaurant is not worth it due to the absence of proof. However, when several people have fallen ill after eating a certain product or at a certain place, an investigation is triggered. In these cases, the common pathogens to blame are E.coli or Salmonella, which can require hospitalization. When this happens, you can contact an injury attorney like Terry Bryant to help you get an appropriate compensation to help you cover your medical bills.
