Giardiasis: An Infectious Disease

Javier Buesa*

An inflammation in the small intestine is giardiasis. It is caused by Giardia lamblia, a microscopic parasite. Via contact with infected individuals, giardiasis spreads. And by consuming infected food or drinking contaminated water, you can get giardiasis. Pet dogs and cats often contract giardia regularly. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this disorder can be observed all over the world. However in overcrowded developed nations that lack sanitary facilities and regulation of water quality, it is more normal.
