Answer: Dysentery is a disease you get from contaminated food. it can cause bloody vomit or diarrhea, cramps, frequent loose stools, abdominal pain, fatigue, intermittent constipation, diarrhea with abdominal swelling, and flatulence.
Answer: Dysentery has both a parasitic and bacterial form. it ca be passed through contamnated Faeces and water.
In developed countries, Dysentery is generally a mild illness, causing mild symptoms normally consisting of mild stomach pains and frequent passage of feces. Symptoms normally present themselves after one to three days and are usually no longer present after a week. The frequency of urges to defecate, the volume of faeces passed, and the presence of mucus and/or blood depends on the pathogen that is causing the disease. Temporary lactose intolerance can occur, which, in the most severe cases, can last for years. In some caustic occasions, vomiting of blood, severe abdominal pain, fever, shock and delirium can all be symptoms
Dysentery is usually caused by a bacterial or protozoan infection or infestation of parasitic worms, but can also be caused by a chemical irritant or viral infection. The most common cause of the disease in developed countries is infection with a bacillus of the Shigella group (causing bacillary dysentery). Infection with the amoeba Entamoeba histolytica can cause amoebic dysentery. This is more common in tropical areas, although has been found throughout the Gulf Coast of the United States, as well as Australia and parts of rural Canada
Answer: Amoebic dysentery is passed on by carelessness of people and negligible hygiene. The Entamoeba histolytica amoeba and the shigella bacteria often thrive in food and water contaminated by human feces. As these parasites live in the large intestine, they travel in the feces of infected people, and a number of times bacillary dysentery has occurred as the feces contaminate the water supplies where sanitation is poor, or where sewage mixes with drinking water.
Answer: Dysentery: Inflammation of the intestine, often with pain, diarrhea, bloody stools, etc. It is usually caused by infestation of the bowel by an ameba. Dysentery can be fatal, usually due to severe dehydration. Treatment includes rapid rehydration, sometimes via IV, and medication. From the Greek "dys-" meaning "abnormal or painful" + "enteron" meaning "intestine" = abnormal or painful intestine.
