En español | As we age, our immune systems weaken and our ability to fight viruses, bacteria and other bugs decreases. As a result, we’re more susceptible to foodborne illness, or food poisoning — and some foods are particularly risky for older adults. Does this mean you have to give up these foods? Probably not, if you make safe choices and are smart about how you handle, prepare and consume them. This quiz helps you stay healthy by making the right choices.
