(HealthDay News) -- If you're traveling abroad, you're going to be tempted to try local dishes.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions for what to eat while in a foreign country:
- Avoid all raw foods -- even fruits and vegetables.
- Make sure food is served very hot and cooked thoroughly. Avoid all foods that have been sitting at room temperature for a long period.
- Don't buy food from street vendors. Eat only at restaurants.
- If you do eat fruits, only consume those on which you can peel the skin before eating.
- Stay away from unpasteurized dairy products.
