Parasitic infection diseases

Parasites are living things that use other living things - like your body - for food and life. You can get them from contaminated food or water, from an insect bite, or from sexual contact. Some parasitic diseases are easy to treat and some are not.Parasites vary in size from tiny, single-celled organisms called protozoa to worms visible to the naked eye. Some parasitic diseases occur in the United States. Contaminated water supplies can lead to Giardia infections. Cats can transmit toxoplasmosis, which is dangerous for pregnant women. Others, like malaria, are common in other parts of the world.Among the hundreds of known parasite species, only small fractions are capable of causing disease in humans. Among them are the protozoa Entamoeba histolytica, which causes amoebic dysentery and is acquired by ingestion of food or water contaminated with the feces of a human carrier of the infectious organism, and the flagellated protozoa Trypanosoma brucei gambiense and T. brucei rhodesiense, which causes sleeping sickness (African trypanosomiasis) and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected tsetse flies.
