  • Description:
    Diarrheal disease is a leading killer of adults and children in India. How much of this disease is caused by contaminated food?

    People who track and study diseases know that you can’t prevent what you can’t measure. Public health scientists have measured the disproportionate amount of illness and death caused by diarrheal disease in India, compared with the rest of the world. But what is still unknown and hasnot been measured is how much of this disease—which includes cholera, salmonellosis, and shigellosis, also called dysentery—is caused by food. Isolating the foodborne causes is a critical step toward defeating a disease that is common, costly, but largely preventable.
