Trichinosis T

richinosis is a disease caused by the parasite Trichinella spiralis. Once it has entered the body, this parasite usually settles in the muscles. If the disease is not treated

immediately, it can cause gastrointestinal disorders, muscle pain, facial edema and even cardiac injuries. Each year thousands of people around the world get infected by eating meat that is contaminated with the Trichinella spriralis parasite (mostly pork meat). Things such as neglected nutrition of the animals or recommended health precautions can cause outbreaks. The disease and its complications can be prevented by following the mandatory inspection protocol. Motic manufacturers a microscope with the necessary optics for the quality control of the meat, to prevent human contamination.
