Bad Bug Book

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Judith Kandel (Faculty), Jul 24, 2000
Comment: Anyone interested in a concise discussion of the microbes and toxins causing
foodborne disease should check out this site. Each page discusses the organism
and the disease including the factors contributing to infection. This site is
text only and can be downloaded in a compressed version for printing by
accessing the link to the preface. However, the online version has links to
search results on recent outbreaks from the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention publication "Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports" and to abstracts
of recent articles through the NIH Pub Med site. Additional information can be
accessed by connecting to appendices on epidemiology, infectious dose, and
factors that influence microbial growth in foods.

Technical Remarks:

The link to NIH PubMed is to the old site from which one can access the latest
version of PubMed.
