Description:
DISEASE FROM FARM ANIMALS Farmers, vets and others who work with animals or their products are at a higher risk of contracting certain diseases from animals than the general population. Infectious diseases that can be contacted from animals are called zoonoses. Even healthy animals can transmit zoonoses to people either directly or indirectly. Many of the diseases listed below do not usually cause serious illness in healthy adults, however, they can be extremely serious in certain groups of people including: • very young and elderly people • people with suppressed immune systems • pregnant women. Common diseases that can be transferred from animals to humans include: • Salmonella • Campylobacter • Verocytotoxigenic E. coli (VTEC), including E.coli O157 • Listeria • Toxoplasmosis, Leptospirosis, Q Fever, Brucellosis, Cryptosporidiosis, Tuberculosis (TB).
