Spread love, not diarrhea. #Giardia is a parasite that causes the diarrheal illness known as giardiasis. Giardia is found on surfaces or in soil, food, or water that has been contaminated with poop from infected people or animals. Although the parasite can be spread in different ways, it is often spread through water. To prevent giardiasis, drink safe water and wash your hands often, especially after using the toilet, caring for an ill person or animal, and before eating or preparing food. A digitally-colorized scanning electron micrograph (SEM) depicts a Giardia #parasite caught in a late stage of cell division, producing a #heart-shaped form.
Giardia is a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal illness known as giardiasis. Giardia (also known as Giardia intestinalis, Giardia lamblia, or Giardia duodenalis) is found on surfaces or in soil, food, or water that has been contaminated with feces (poop) from infected humans or animals.
Giardia is protected by an outer shell that allows it to survive outside the body for long periods of time and makes it tolerant to chlorine disinfection. While the parasite can be spread in different ways, water (drinking water and recreational water) is the most common mode of transmission.
