about this item

Citing the now well-accepted fact that the human body contains more microbial cells than human cells, this book reviews the multiple facets of food microbiology as applied to human health and disease. Beginning with an overview of food-borne infectious diseases, it discusses in detail the recent food-borne infectious disease outbreaks in the United States and their investigations. Nine chapters are: foodborne infectious diseases—historical perspective and overview; recent foodborne infectious diseases outbreaks in the United States; foodborne infectious diseases in the international traveler; outbreak investigation in foodborne infectious diseases—successes and limitations; sources and vehicles of foodborne infectious diseases; molecular methodologies for investigating foodborne infection; diagnosis and management of foodborne infectious diseases; antibiotic use in animal feed and its impact on antibiotic resistance in human pathogens; role of probiotics and prebiotics in the management of obesity. There are references, figures and tables. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
