I was therefore interested to hear this morning on BBC breakfast that we can all do a few small things that will reduce the risk.  Their tips are:

•   Wash fruit and vegetables before you eat them to ensure they are clean and to remove  germs.

•  Peeling or cooking fruit and vegetables

A Scottish expert, Dr Nicola Holden of the James Hutton Institute reports that research suggests washing alone is insufficient as the bacteria may be inside the food rather than just on the outside.

Symptoms of E.coli are diarrhoea and fevers which can lead to kidney failure and damage to the nervous system resulting in slurred speech or epileptic fits.
