Only about one in four people have he heard From Campylobactercompared to 90 percent of those familiar salmonella. “Although the incidence of these two … gastrointestinal infections is surprisingly high,” infecting more than one million Americans each year, “it is outpaced by the incidence of infections caused by extra-intestinal pathogens. Escherichia coli (ExPEC)” — a mistake fewer people may have heard of.
outside the vessels? this means outside the intestineas in causing bladder infections, and pathogenicWhich means that it causes disease. In fact, coli bacteria Results In millions of injuries annually. As I discuss in my video Friday favorites: Urinary tract infections from eating chicken“Multiple lines of evidence indicate Poultry as a major animal reservoir for UTIs”—that is, a source of bacteria that cause UTIs in humans. (You may remember that I explored this many years ago, as discussed in my video Avoid chicken to avoid bladder infections.) This is it Based on Not only are studies showing that blood infections, brain infections, and urinary tract infections in mouse models can be caused by these types of coli bacteria from commercial chicken meat and eggs, but also from studies in women with multidrug-resistant urinary tract infections. Reports Increased frequent consumption of retail chicken. Similarly, consumers of aged chicken were more susceptible to this You have Cipro-resistant bladder infections compared to those who did not eat chicken at all. Pork, not beef, was also associated with increased risk, as you can see below and at 1:14 in my country video.
“there also Few associations were observed between beef cattle or retail beef cattle and human ExPEC, indicating that beef cattle are not a reservoir of human ExPEC’ (bladder infections), whereas in chickens, up to 90 percent of chicken carcasses harboring coli bacteriaAbout one in five isolates tested It has the potential to cause urinary tract infections.
What about eggs? We know that retail chicken meat is polluted With ExPEC isolates that are similar to the strains that cause human infection,” but what about retail chickens egg? Instead of one in five ExPEC being in chicken meat, it was more like only one in 20 eggs he is Closer to pork or beef levels.
Researchers are sure that chickens are the primary reservoir when they do You find The same type of strain is when a vegetarian, they explain, “consistent with human-to-human transmission or errors in reporting consumption of poultry rather than human strains derived from a source other than chicken.” Someone might claim to be a vegetarian but actually eat some chicken, for example, or perhaps there has been human-to-human or even shopping cart-to-human transmission. (see my How to shop for, handle and store chicken Video.) Most people fail to sanitize their hands after picking up a package of poultry at the grocery store, so “bacteria potentially left in the cart can affect other shoppers… A shopper who does not buy poultry, or who buys poultry and follows safety precautions, can still be exposed to poultry contaminants through the cart.” .
“Difficult Estimation How much ExPEC exchange can be attributed to ‘personal contact’ after rectal colonization of a poultry consumer. Researchers wiper Public toilets In an attempt to identify risks, more than a thousand samples were collected from 56 public toilets in 33 facilities. As you can see in the chart below and at 3:07 in my country videothat they have found Lots of evidence coli bacteria In general, but especially in restrooms in parks and fast food joints – even more so than at gas stations, which surprised me. what was truly What was unexpected to me, though, was that women’s toilets were so worst of men!
Only about 1 percent of researchers’ samples Taking They were positive for ExPEC bacteria, but were recovered from sites that were not associated with latrines and were not visibly contaminated. Therefore, one may come into contact with ExPEC bacteria with their bare hands after closing the tap after, after Wash their hands, for example. In this way, the risk “cannot be completely eliminated by careful hand washing or avoiding the appearance of faeces” – although it is probably a good idea to avoid this anyway. Use hand sanitizer after leaving the bathroom, not to mention the meat aisle afterwards influential A package of poultry, may provide additional protection.
What is the rate of seven million bladder infections – a common form of urinary tract infection (UTI) – each year in the United States it causes Through chicken meat? “If no more chickens are eaten, how many are there coli bacteria Will UTIs be prevented and to what extent will the spread be reduced? It’s hard to tell because of “the time lag between intestinal acquisition and asymptomatic colonization and the development of infection.” You can eat some contaminated chicken today, but UTI-causing ExPEC bacteria may remain in your colon for months before making their way into your bladder and causing an infection. Makes us know that it can take all that time is finally study Intestinal population dynamics causing UTI coli bacteria between partners. Increased rectal-to-rectal transfers’ may be explained by elevated levels of coli bacteria present in the urine of an infected woman, which increases the possibility of transmission by direct contact.” This is coli bacteria They can then be passed on to their partners, depending on certain intimate practices, such as cunnilingus.
Bottom line? There is compelling evidence that the sale of meat, especially poultry, serve As an important reservoir of human exposure to antibiotic resistance coli bacteria that cause urinary tract infection. Thus, the term UTI or foodborne UTI has been adopted to describe this infection.”
Certainly, we can reduce the burden of foodborne bladder infections by development Kind of an ExPEC vaccine, but why not just cut back on our contact with fresh or frozen poultry? No harm, no bird.
clings. Who eats undercooked chicken? It’s usually a cross-contamination problem, as I discuss in Bacteria that cause food contamination.
These days, there is a particular concern about antibiotic-resistant infections. We see Transcending the Age of Miracles: Confronting the Post-Antibiotic Era And the Friday favorites: How about kosher and organic chicken? Learn more about bacterial contamination.
