Staying healthy on the road

Ciguatera fish poisoning, sleeping sickness and tickborne encephalitis are among the subjects dissected, so to speak, in “CDC Health Information for International Travel 2014.” I’ve looked over the 600-plus pages and, frankly, I never want to travel overseas again. A temporary reaction brought on by exposure to scary scenarios, the doctors who wrote the book might say. With maps detailing diseases’ spreads, cautions about road conditions overseas and country-specific recommendations for disease prevention, this book is akin to having a travel clinic on your shelf.Kerri Westenberg
