Food Pathogens illness (also food borne disease and colloquially referred to as food poisoning is any illness resulting from the consumption of contaminated food, pathogenic bacteria, viruses, or parasites that contaminate food as well as chemical or natural toxins such as poisonous mushrooms.
Symptoms vary depending on the cause, and are described below in this article. A few broad generalizations can be made, e.g.: Theincubation period ranges from hours to days, depending on the cause and on how much was consumed. The incubation period tends to cause sufferers to not associate the symptoms with the item consumed, and so to cause sufferers to attribute the symptoms to stomach flu for example. Symptoms often include vomiting, fever, and aches, and may include diarrhea. Bouts of vomiting can be repeated, with an extended delay in between, because even if infected food was eliminated from the stomach in the first bout, microbes (if applicable) can have passed through the stomach into the intestine, attached to the cells lining the intestinal walls, and begun to multiply there. Some types of microbes stay in the intestine, some produce a toxin that is absorbed into the bloodstream, and some can directly invade deeper body tissues.
The action of monitoring food to ensure that it will not cause food borne illness is known as food safety. Food borne disease can also be caused by a large variety of toxins that affect the environment. Food borne illness can also be caused by pesticides or medicines in food and naturally toxic substances such as poisonous mushrooms or reef fish.
OMICS International organizes 1000+ Global events every year across the Globe. OMICS International Agri, Food and Aqua Conferences is a hub which covers the innards of Agriculture, Food and aquaculture sciences which serves as a major platform for the transfer of scientific knowledge through which are arranged parallel to the scientific-sessions.
Scope and Importance:
Foodborne Pathogens and Disease is the medical, veterinary, agricultural and research communities. Foodborne Pathogens and Disease will bridge the gap between these diverse groups. The scope of food pathogens is comprehensive and includes topics such as: emerging foodborne pathogens; health problems/disease caused by foodborne pathogens; emergence of drug resistance in foodborne pathogens; methods and technology for rapid and accurate detection of foodborne pathogens; strategies to destroy or control foodborne pathogens in food production and processing environments; development of novel strategies for the prevention and control of plant and animal diseases that impact food safety; and dissemination of innovative foodborne pathogen/food safety educational materials. The food safety testing market is well-established in Europe and North America. Emerging markets such as Latin America, Africa, and Asia-Pacific show a potential for growth due to increase in international food trade, consumer awareness of food contamination, outbreaks of food poisoning, and unexplored potential in emerging countries; China and India are expected to create a huge opportunity for the food safety testing market.
The market for food safety testing is projected to reach $15,040.7 million and a volume of 1,154.8 million tests by 2019. In 2013, North America was the largest market for food safety testing, while Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the review period. Food safety regulations are increasing food safety testing volumes in both developed and developing countries. Implementation of Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in the U. S. and an extended food safety action plan implemented in China are two examples presenting attractive opportunities for driving the growth of the food safety testing market.
The food safety testing market for pathogen commanded a majority share in 2013. Increasing foodborne diseases due to Salmonella are also attributed to the growth of the food safety testing market for pathogens. This is mostly seen due to poor handling during food production. To ensure the safety of food products, the food safety management system is implemented with good manufacturing and handling practices. Increasing food contamination and the outbreak of shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) poisoning have resulted in an increase in the frequency of E. coli testing in the global food testing market.
The leading players in the food safety testing market include SGS S.A. (Switzerland), Intertek Group Plc. (U.K.), Eurofins Scientific (Luxembourg), Silliker, Inc. (U.S.), Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Ltd. (U.K.), and Bureau Veritas S.A. (France).
