About this item

A day at the beach: delightful, restorative – and potentially dangerous.

Leisure activities, from the mundane to the exotic, expose us to a growing list of pathogenic microbes, some new and many increasingly resistant to current therapies. Common pets, livestock, traveling, and cuisine all have the potential to cause illnesses that may be difficult to diagnose and treat.

Engagingly written by a team of infectious disease specialists and edited by David Schlossberg,Infections of Leisure features 19 chapters focused on the infection risks associated with particular types of activities, including camping, playing sports, interacting with animals, receiving body modifications, and mountain climbing. This new edition includes vibrant, full-color images, recommended readings chosen by expert authors, and practical tips in each chapter.

Useful for health care professionals, microbiologists, and infectious diseases specialists, the information inInfections of Leisure will support confident identification of leisure-associated infections and enable informed choices, as well as provide an understanding of the risks posed to human health by hobbies, exotic foods and travel.
