Types of Malignant Microorganisms in Food

  • by

     The definition of this foodborne infection caused by malignant microorganisms is a parasite that is housed in another living organism and benefits from it at its expense. Foodborne infection: Foodborne infection is a process by which a pathogenic microorganism found in a particular food multiplies and invades another organism (host), causing damage after ingestion.

     Parasite: A parasite is a malignant microorganism that is housed in another living organism and benefits from it at its own expense.

     In this article I will tell you some types of malignant microorganisms in food and characteristics of the infections they cause. These are:

  • Giardia Intestinalis and Cryptospordium protozoa. People need to know that these types are found in plants and contaminated or non-potable water. Its symptoms are gastrointestinal. To avoid the malignant microorganism of food, I recommend that you wash all food with drinking water, because their hygiene must be good and reduce the noticeable presence of frozen protozoa or cook with heat.
  • Protozoan Toxoplasma gondii.This type is found in raw vegetables, raw or poorly cooked meat and seafood and manifests itself differently from person to person.In most cases, people who are infected will be asymptomatic. They will have symptoms accompanied by systemic failures that end in possible fetal death and immunosuppression.
  • Taenia Solium worm: In the case of the Taenia solium worm parasite, it is a diner that is found in contaminated wild boar meat and foodborne infection in the human body is prevented by good cooking with heat or frost.
  • Taenia Solium worm with cysticercosis.In the case of this malignant food microorganism, it may be asymptomatic, if it has already created infection or may create a nonspecific infection that affects the nervous system or muscle pain. It is contracted from raw vegetables or drinking or contaminated water. Infection is avoided with sufficient hygiene.
  • Cysticercosis can cause cysticercosis. This is an infection caused by obsolete pig larvae. If not cooked properly, the meat consumer is infected.
  • Vierme Anisakis simplex. The well-known malignant worm Anisakis simplex is known for its foodborne infection transmitted by raw or poorly cooked marine fish, such as sushi, a dish typical of Japanese cuisine. This parasitic worm is prevented only by freezing food.
