Vacation Precaution Opus

Vacationers... Did you know?

The long-awaited vacations of 1.3 million Canadians may be ruined every year by Travellers' Diarrhea, also referred to as Montezuma's Revenge. While rarely life threatening, Travellers' Diarrhea has a way of disrupting a perfectly planned vacation by keeping you running to the bathroom or even stuck in bed.

To make sure your vacation is as wonderful as can be, travellers to Mexico, the Caribbean, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and most parts of Asia should take precautions to avoid Travellers' Diarrhea.

"Now you have a tool that is recommended to help prevent Travellers' Diarrhea" said Dr. Suni Boraston, travel medicine specialist, Vancouver BC. "Travel specialists like myself are thrilled that there is now a prevention available for Travellers' Diarrhea. Called Dukoral™, it's an oral vaccine that you drink prior to your trip to help protect you from Travellers' Diarrhea. You still need to be cautious while travelling, but you can be a more confident traveller knowing that Dukoral is protecting you."

Travel Tips:

• Drink only carbonated bottled water or soft drinks, bottled fruit juices, alcoholic beverages without ice and hot beverages

• Only eat fruit and vegetables that you have peeled yourself

• Make sure that foods are well cooked

• Don't forget to visit a travel clinic or your family doctor well in advance of your trip to ensure you are medically protected from travellers' diseases including Travellers' Diarrhea.
