Urinary infection due to eating contaminated meat is increasing in America: 8 million people get treated for urinary tract infection annually, and 10 out of 25 women
In America, 10 out of 25 women and 3 out of 3 men suffer from some form of urinary tract infection. A report by the Urology Care Foundation revealed that contaminated meat is responsible for more than half a million urinary tract infections (UTIs) in the US each year.
Actually, UTI can also be caused by a bacteria called Escherichia coli. This bacteria is found in the gastrointestinal tract. The University of Washington, the University of Michigan and Northern Arizona University analyzed 1,923 raw chicken, pork and turkey samples from nine major stores in Flagstaff and Arizona over a one-year period.
After collecting these samples, these researchers examined 1,188 urine and blood samples from Flagstaff Medical Center. After genetic testing, it was found that about 8% of UTI cases came from consuming such contaminated meat. 60 to 80 million UTI cases are treated in the United States.
In such a situation, the number of patients affected by spoiled and contaminated meat can be equal to 4,80,000 to 6,40,000 cases. Escherichia coli bacteria are found in the intestines of animals as well as humans. They play an important role in the normal microbiome but can sometimes lead to serious illness.
UTI is called a urinary tract infection. It has many symptoms. It has symptoms like the smell in urine, pain or burning during urination, abdominal pressure and chills or persistent fever, nausea and vomiting. Such a situation also arises because of sugar.
