Guide to Vomiting

Source: Penywise via MorgueFileVomiting can be linked to various conditions, diseases or illness. Some causes are commonly known like food poisoning or flu, but brain tumors and gastritis can also cause souring of food on the stomach resulting in throwing up. The medical term for this symptom is emesis.

Bright Hub's Guide to Vomiting offers a complete look at the symptoms, risks and potential treatments - both medical and alternative - for the condition. Excess vomiting can result in severe dehydration, aspiration of food and pneumonia. While symptoms are similar, regurgitation is not the same as throwing up.
