Fish is a valuable source of light protein for humans, its meat contains vitamins and useful trace elements, but one should not forget about the danger. The product may contain parasites that are transmitted by human consumption and provoke serious diseases. Find out if it is worth giving up eating seafood, and protect yourself by learning how to properly handle fish.
The fact that there are parasites in sea fish became known only in 1995. The first case of human infection with helminthiasis after eating herring was described. It originated in the Netherlands, and today the geographical distribution has expanded. Cases of the disease are found in Europe, Southeast Asia, South and North America. There are parasites in fish common in Russia, in particular in the central region, the Far East and Kamchatka.

You can find information that parasites are found only in freshwater fish, and sea fish can be eaten without fear, even raw. Allegedly, worms do not survive in salt water, therefore its inhabitants cannot reward a person with helminthiasis. This opinion is only partly true. There are indeed fewer parasites in sea fish, but it cannot be called completely safe. More than 70% of the inhabitants are infected.
Don't panic and don't give up eating valuable seafood. With high-quality heat treatment, salting or deep freezing, pests die.
The causative agents of the disease are larvae belonging to a single genus and having one name - anisakids. Parasites are found in herring, pink salmon, capelin, hake, mackerel and cod. Also, pathogens are found in squid, shrimp and shellfish.
According to Rospotrebnadzor, the larvae of helminths are in fish of various price categories and expensive does not mean safe. In meat, there are causative agents of various diseases - opisthorchiasis, clonorchiasis, diphyllobothriasis, anisacidosis.
But, this is not a reason to refuse the most valuable product. The main thing is to pay close attention to its quality and use fish that has undergone high-quality heat treatment. You should not buy products salted in an artisanal way - it is better to prefer a trusted manufacturer.

The dish has proven itself well both hot and cold - even after cooling completely, it does not lose its attractiveness at all. It should be noted that in this way you can bake in the oven not only hake, but also any other fish - the result will always be excellent.

Rotavirus in infants often debuts with a cough and a runny nose, as well as a sore throat. This makes diagnosis difficult and leads to the spread of infection. Infection also occurs through direct contact with a carrier of the virus or a sick person. Often young children become infected through the everyday way - through the use of common household items, dishes, toys. Contamination from water or food is also possible. Rotavirus enters the body through the oral cavity. Then it enters the cavity of the small intestine and leads to the development of severe diarrhea.
Symptoms of the disease are expressed by acute abdominal pain and fever up to febrile numbers. On the first day, repeated intense vomiting develops, this leads to the onset of dehydration, and the child becomes lethargic and weak. Severe dehydration is life-threatening for a newborn with rotavirus infection. The lower the child's weight and age, the higher the risk of developing dehydration and intoxication.
No specific etiotropic therapy has been developed, which is aimed at eliminating the infectious pathogen. Pathogenetic treatment helps to restore the water-salt balance and the body to cope with the virus. Drinking plenty of fluids and eating well can help.
The importance of diet and proper nutrition in the acute period of intestinal infection and in the recovery period cannot be overestimated. In order for the recovery of the intestines and the body after an illness to be successful, control the nutrition of the child.
In order for the child to recover quickly and easily, stick to the diet both in the acute period of the disease and when recovering from it for several weeks. This will help to avoid the development of complications and relapses of the disease.
Prepare the meals given to the child separately and individually. Fried and spicy, as well as salty foods are necessarily excluded from the diet. All foods containing coarse fiber are also excluded. It is necessary to cook food in boiled or steam form. After cooking, grind the food, this is a matter of two minutes using a meat grinder or blender.
In a diseased state, the intestines perceive only soft, ground food, without spices and seasonings.
