Avoid Stomach Trouble on Tour
Fueling your body in foreign countries can be a challenge: Unfamiliar bacteria
can disturb your intestines, leading to vomiting and diarrhea, which can
quickly dehydrate your body—and keep you from the stage. Travelers are at
an especially high risk in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia (apart
from Japan). Dance/USA’s Task Force on Dancer Health recommends taking
these steps to stay healthy in developing countries:
Always wash your hands before eating, and only eat off clean, dry plates
Drink, rinse your mouth and brush
your teeth with bottled water.
Avoid ice cubes.
All meat and vegetables
should be cooked and
served hot. That includes
lettuce—don’t eat salad.

Here’s a reason to clean up your petit allégro: Researchers from the
University of Florida recently found that the risk of injuring your ACL (the
anterior cruciate ligament of the knee) is eight times higher in young women
than young men after puberty. Teenage girls often don’t have enough
strength and neuromuscular control yet
to cope with their increased weight and
height. That puts the ACL at risk during
