(NaturalNews) The pharmaceutical industry has developed yet another new vaccine, this time for a common holiday ailment that is said to afflict millions of travelers every year. As reported by the U.K.'s Daily Mail, researchers from the University of Cambridge have concocted an oral, powder-based vaccine that they say may help slow the spread of "Delhi belly," a type of dysentery that visitors to India and other countries in the tropics often contract as a result of eating tainted food and drinking tainted water.

According to the latest statistics, some 10 million people and half of all tourists develop Delhi belly every year as a result of both Escherichia coli (E. coli) and salmonella, the two types of bacteria targeted by the new vaccine, as well as typhoid fever. These conditions can ultimately ruin a vacation, leaving a person stricken with cramps, diarrhea, dehydration and fever symptoms for up to two weeks or more, which is often the duration of an entire trip.

But the legal drug cartel says it has the answer to this epidemic, which is allegedly as simple as ingesting a little bit of powder in a pill prior to vacationing. Clinical trials involving humans are expected to begin towards the end of 2013, but in the meantime, researchers are pushing the new pills as some kind of breakthrough cure for what basically amounts to "getting the runs" while traveling or going on vacation.

"The vaccine we have produced is a powder so it is very stable and does not need to be kept in cold storage," says Professor Nigel Slater from the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. "Nor does it carry any of the problems associated with needles. It is currently targeting two main bacteria: the E. coli that causes Delhi belly, and salmonella that causes typhoid."

Why vaccinate when you can avoid bacterial infections by eating healthy?

As great as this all might sound in theory, many others are leery of the new vaccine, which is merely the latest in a long line of new vaccines for virtually every known condition under the sun. Rather than take a vaccine for these conditions, say some, a better option is to simply boost one's immunity by supplementing with high doses of vitamin C, for instance, or avoiding refined sugars and processed carbohydrates.

"Since the purpose of the body's immune system is to defend against attack and help initiate repair, the better it does it, the healthier we are," explains natural health guru Jon Barron on his blog. "Surprisingly, not only are the natural immune boosters and pathogen destroyers safer than the drug approach (having far fewer side effects); they are also far more powerful than their pharmaceutical counterparts."

Barron recommends eating clean, organic foods whenever possible; avoiding refined sugars like high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS); limiting intake of coffee and other sources of caffeine; reducing alcohol consumption; intaking more omega-3 fatty acids; avoiding toxic food additives like genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and artificial sweeteners; and eating alkaline-promoting foods that naturally raise your pH levels.
