ENTERITIS IN TOURISTS

ENTERITIS IN TOURISTS To the Editor:— In The Journal, Sept. 22, 1951, page 358, there appeared a query and answer on enteritis in American tourists in Mexico. I should like to comment on the subject of enteritis in American tourists in general. I have been living in Italy for two years and have come in contact with many American tourists, traveling businessmen, and students. I have yet to encounter any who have been intelligently informed on the subject of protecting their health while in Italy. There is apparently no existing means to orient the ordinary citizen who happens to be traveling abroad. Of course, he can ferret out such information from various sources on his own initiative, but I imagine it is a rare traveler who does so. The protective agency for the private citizen should be his own physician, who should advise him about immunizations, the potability of water, what to eat, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
