Storyboard Text

  • Okay kids, today we are going to be talking about Listeria. Listeria is an infection caused by eating food contaminated by the bacterium 
  • Listeria
  • Now, the shape of the actual bacteria almost like a long octopus and sometimes even look pill like, and this octopus like infection can migrate to your brain, spinal cord, membranes, and even your bloodstream. Listeria can cause symptoms similar to any other food born disease such as diarrhea and a fever. But in this case, Listeria a less common thread of food born illness so its not seen as often.
  • Listeria
  • Can anyone tell me what happens to the brain while infected with listeria
  • Listeria
  • Doesn't the brain get inflammed? And when it reaches the liver it just multiplies?
  • Yes! And to prevent this you should always check to make sure your food products say "made with pasteurized milk," Or you could just stay away from soft cheeses to prevent any bad things. And if you are pregnant you can be more suseptible to this. There are many signs to allow you to know when listeria is present in your system.
  • Listeria
  • When you are pregnant you may develop flu like symptoms and can cause miscarriage, premature delivery, and a life threatening infection to the new born. BUT is can be diagnosed with a bacterial culture from a blood test and can be treated with antibiotics. 
  • Listeria
  • Usually people recover from this though there have been a few deaths because of Listeria. And when there have been two or more cases of someone getting it from the same product it is documented and taken care of. People who end up getting it more often are pregnant women even though it is rare. Okay, class is now over, have a good weekend students!
