Salmonella

  1. 1. Salmonella Bobby Chavez
  2. 2. How To Get It <ul><li>     The majority of infections are caused by the ingestion of infected meat. The Salmonella bacteria are extremely resistant and hard to kill. If food is not properly cooked then the bacteria will survive and attack you. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Discovering Salmonella <ul><li>    Salmonella was discovered by and named after pathologist Daniel Elmer Salmon. Salmon was working with Theobald Smith trying to find a cure for Hog Cholera. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Statistics <ul><li>    Infants and young children are the most susceptible to Salmonella, as only a small amount of infected meat is required to infect the person, whereas as in adults, a large amount of under cooked meat is needed. In 2010, 71% of the reported Salmonella cases took place in people either under the age of 8 or over the age of 70. In Germany in 2008, 1 out of every 5 people was infected with the Salmonella bacteria. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Symptoms of Salmonella <ul><li>Salmonella symptoms include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Nausea </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vomiting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Abdominal Pain </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  Diarrhea </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  Fever </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Chills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Headache </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Blood in the Stool </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. How It Spreads <ul><li>     Salmonella is spread only through the digestion of infected meat, meaning the only way to become infected from another human is to eat them. However, this became a problem in Papua New Guinea, when a cannibalistic tribe near the town of Lapeka, in eastern New Guinea, fell victim to the first major outbreak of the bacteria, killing approximately 120 people. </li></ul>Lapeka
