Let’s go on a journey to discover the very small that can have real impact on human health. As you may know, bacteria, viruses, and parasites can cause many human illnesses. This presentation is a brief introduction of the most infamous pathogens responsible for foodborne diseases. Every year millions of people suffer from diarrhea and hundred of thousands are dying from it. Dr Amandine Hauer will briefly present a selection of bacteria (Campylobacter, E.coli, Salmonella, etc.), viruses (HAV, Norovirus), and parasites (Giardia, Entamoeba, etc.) through their important historical facts, their description, the diseases they are responsible for, and the sources of contamination.
This will open your appetite for knowledge about pathogens transmitted by food!
