Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

If I ate something and I thought there was a better than average chance it would make me sick (not really sick, just minor foodbourne infection), it there anything I can do to prevent getting sick, or should I just hope the food is fine and my body can handle it?

Dear person,

Don't eat it.

Oh wait, you have already eaten it (at first, I thought you were just contemplating eating it). Drink lots of water. That always helps me get better faster when I get sick. Also, if you do start vomiting, it won't be as bad if you are hydrated.

Dear you,

I have a bottle of licorice pills I keep around for whenever I have an upset stomach. They work wonders, and are awesome for when I feel like throwing up. Barring those, I always keep mints close, because mint is also good (though not as good) for calming your stomach, and abating related side effects like nausea.

Dear MNH,

If you ate something that you truly think will make you terribly sick, you can throw it up. NOTE: I am not suggesting throwing up as a solution to eating any food that you later regret eating. This is more of a last-ditch effort to avoid terrible illness if you ate uncooked pork or something similarly risky in terms of transmitting serious illness/parasites.
