A cause leads to those apiece results that occur each and every subsequent around the globe. It becomes more interesting and analytical when it comes for the diseases that are invented by many parasites. The parasites have not only exaggerated the body machine of many patients but they have   also made the researchers to think and search the roots from where they have stood up. Nonetheless, invented by many names the parasitic diseases have numerous causes and symptoms.

Causes of the parasitic diseases:

The various parasitic diseases can be a result of the food that is infected by the animals like cows and pigs. These animals are infected with the parasites like ‘Cryptosporidium’ and ‘Trichinella’. If a person is doing an intake of Trichinella-infected and uncooked food like for example the uncooked meat of bear, boar or even the domestic pig, he/she can have an attack of the parasitic disease. The disease ‘Cryptosporidiosis’ can attack the people staying near to the infected orchards or water sources near the grazing land of cows or if  they consume the fruits without washing them properly. The various pets can also transmit the sickness to the people who do not wash their hands appropriately. Some cats and dog parasites and other pet animals like puppies and kittens can also be infected by the virus and transfer it to the human being. If a Cryptosporidiosisperson is coming in the contact of wild animals or the places where there are contaminated particles of wild animals, he/she can be infected with the parasite. As for example, the people can be infected by the raccoon parasite called ‘Baylisascaris’, if they touch or work in that area which  is polluted with the infected raccoon feces. The parasites can also be established in the bloodstream of the person who is infected and it can be transmitted to other people by the revelation of an affected person’s blood. It can happen by the mean of blood transfusion or sharing the used needles or syringes that are polluted by blood. The parasites which are bloodborne and is a matter of serious concern are being found in the US in majority. This includes ‘protozoa’, which is cause of American ‘trypanosomiasis’, also known as ‘Chagas Disease’, ‘babesiosis’ and ‘malaria’. These all diseases are the result of a parasite which stays inside the red blood cells and leishmaniasis. Typically, theses parasites are spread in the nature via many insects (vectors) rather than by blood. In nature, these parasites are typically explored by insects (vectors) like triatomine microbe, ixodid tick, anopheline mosquitoes, and phlebotomine sand flies into the human blood via various means. In the US and the like countries theses type of vector-borne transportations is low apart from some of the virus like Babesia species. However, the all vector-borne disease can also be blood-borne. They can be segregated as per their importance. The various well-known food-borne protozoa like ‘Cryptosporidium spp’, ‘Giardia intestinalis’, ‘Cyclospora cayetanensis’, ‘Toxoplasma gondii’, and ‘Entamoeba histolytica’; some of the roundworms are ‘Trichinella spirali’ and ‘Anisakis spp’ and tapeworms ‘Diphylobothrium spp’. and ‘Taenia spp’ that are also transmitted by polluted foods. These foods can be undercooked fish crabs and mollusks, meat, raw aquatic plants like watercress, some of the raw vegetables which are contaminated by animal or human feces and those of the foods that are polluted by the food service workers through poor hygiene. This can also be transmitted through making contact with one person to another.

Symptoms of parasite diseases:

The symptom of the parasitic infections depend upon the type of the parasite. The protozoa like Cryptosporidium spp., Giardia intestinalis, and Cyclospora cayetanensis are the most common cause of cough, muscle pain, abdominal pain, diarrhea, skin lesions, weight loss, and many other complications. Some of the symptoms of Cryptosporidiosis are diarrhea, stomach cramps,, loose water stools. There can be also an occurrence of a slight fever. The doctors find difficult to find the actual infection or to diagnose the patients those who have unclear or hazy symptoms or even sometime they do not show any symptoms. Nevertheless, almost ever parasitic disease have the almost same symptoms like a patient can have diarrhea with stinking stool that becomes worse afterwards. If a person is having constipation, that can change into soft and watery stool suddenly. There can also be a constant echoing in the stomach area that is not related to hunger. There are possibilities of heartburn or chest pains that can be severe at times. Unlearned food allergies can also occur. There can also an incidence of itching around the areas of nose ears and anus. The various other symptoms that have recognized in the patients who are affected by the virus are anemia and blood stool, gas, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, sore insight the mouth and teeth, chronic fatigue, muscle pains or headache, skin rashes, memory loss and ever depression.
