This site provides information about viral gastroenteritis (stomach flu), bacterial gastroenteritis, parasitic gastroenteritis, food borne illnesses, and food poisoning. The purpose of this site is to educate viewers so they can avoid getting and spreading these illnesses, including norovirus and rotavirus.
Sometimes people mistake symptoms of stomach flu, or gastroenteritis, for the viral infection we commonly call "flu." But the "stomach flu" is not the flu. It is a gastrointestinal illness caused by a number of factors including bacteria, viruses and parasites. The flu, which causes fever, congestion, muscle aches, and fatigue, is caused by viruses only. #flu #stomachflu #sick #treatment
