How does Salmonella food poisoning affect the body?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Since people get Salmonella food poisoning by ingesting contaminated food, the stomach and digestive tract are usually affected the most. The bacteria begin to live and grow in your stomach and intestines, which causes the nausea, diarrhea, and stomach cramping. Sometimes, the bacteria can spread and begin to live in your blood stream. If this happens, you may start seeing more serious and severe complications in other parts of your body.
