This form of parasite is easily passed around though contaminated food and water as well as poor hygiene.
Salads that are washed in this contaminated tap water, will ultimately cause you to fall ill on holiday with Amoebic Dysentery.
Symptoms of this parasite are:
- Stomach cramps
- Diarrhoea that contains traces of blood
- Pain when passing stools
- Weight loss
- The formation of cysts on internal organs
Amoebae exist in two common forms. The first being trophozoites, which is harmless to humans and the second form is as cysts which can be very dangerous to humans when contracted. Cysts make their way through the digestive system rapidly as they are resistant to the acid content within our stomachs, thus causing infection in the intestines which is very unpleasant.
We have found that many people who have experienced holiday sickness and diarrhoea have more often than not said that there has been a smell of sewage from around the resort. When looking into this, it is common that the hotels are actually using untreated sewage to fertilise plants and soil around the complex which leaves holiday makers at huge risk of getting sick abroad.
