Typhoid Fever is a bacterial infection caused by the Salmonella Typhi bacterium. The bacteria only lives in humans, and is spread by an infected individual handling the food or drink of another individual, or by fecal contamination of food or water. The Typhoid Fever bacterium is not common in the United States, Western Europe, Australia, Canada, and Japan, but is found in most developing countries. Therefore, individuals traveling to developing countries should be especially cautious. Vaccinations are available against Typhoid Fever, and it can be cured through the use of antibiotics. Symptoms of Typhoid Fever include high fever, weakness, stomach pains, headache, and loss of appetite. Even after symptoms disappear, individuals could still carry the bacterium in their intestinal tract, so it is important to take the full antibiotic prescription and avoid serving other people food or drink. The best way to prevent the infection of Typhoid Fever is to boil water for one minute before drinking it, eat founds that are cooked thoroughly, and avoid fruits and vegetables that cannot be peeled or washed easily.
