What are the symptoms of food poisoning?

While food is intended to fuel the body, sometimes it can make people sick. According to the National Capital Poison Center, food poisoning annually affects one in six Americans. With such a high proportion of people affected, Connecticut residents may wonder what the most common symptoms of food poisoning are so that they will know in case they or a loved one gets a food-borne illness.

Dog bites and the emotional injuries they cause

Dog bites can be frightening occurrences for any Connecticut resident. After the physical scars have faded, though, people sometimes still experience trauma related to the incident. Emotional trauma stemming from a dog bite can affect many parts of a person’s life, even long after the bite has occurred.

Biking a cause of brain injuries

Many Connecticut bikers do not associate cycling with brain injuries. Yet this form of exercise is responsible for a vast number of brain injuries each year. Bikers need to be aware of the dangers, as well as the safety precautions they can take, that come with participating in this sport on a regular basis.

Drinking and driving numbers for Labor Day weekend

Holiday weekends are usually a popular time for Connecticut residents to be on the road. Without caution, however, holidays can also be hazardous for drivers. Three-day weekends, such as Labor Day weekend, mean extra law enforcement on the road to keep drivers safe. One of the main priorities for police is drunk driving.

Effect of marijuana on drivers

Many Connecticut drivers know about the dangers of drinking and driving. With the legalization of marijuana in various states across the country, including Connecticut, drivers may not think about the hazards associated with marijuana. Because marijuana has many uses, ranging from recreational to medicinal, drivers should educate themselves about all of its effects, especially if they plan to drive.
