However, in Kiev, such drastic measures do not support all. Many citizens like to eat fast food. Sellers assure, what to buy fresh food and cook for themselves, so street food is completely safe.

At the same time, those who support the ban of such trade, complain about the cluttering of the city and the unsanitary conditions, they say, sellers Shawarma and hot dogs do not wash their hands.

Doctors also strongly emphasize that street food is risky.

“Meat pies, doughnuts and even corn, which on the street is also being prepared. We don’t know whether to clean the equipment with which it is to be prepared. Where is the guarantee that it will not be spoiled until the end of the day of sale. Dangerous, that develops food poisoning or as we call it in the home, poisoning. So, there is nausea, vomiting, temperature, diarrhea,” – said the doctor-the therapist Natalia Gordienko.

Currently the petition to ban street food in the capital has already supported more than a hundred people. To the initiative considered by the city Council, she needs to get 10 thousand votes in a period of 3 months.

Symptoms of botulism can masquerade as other diseases and it often happens that poisoning people go to an ophthalmologist or neurologist. “The first symptom that patients notice is the deterioration of view. Then maybe dry mouth. The sooner a patient seeks help, the more successful the treatment will be”, – said the chief doctor of the Odessa city hospital Svetlana Lavrikova.
