    Our topic now with Infectious. This is Diarrhea invasive bacterial diarrhea is my topic. All that I'm gonna do here is just list the organisms. I'll give you a little bit of explanation but not a whole lot. This is more Micro. <i>Shigella</i>, quite common invasive bacteria. <i>Salmonella</i>, different species of <i>Salmonella </i> that may result in types of diarrhea. <i>Vibrio parahemolyticus</i>, a diarrhea that might be found with shellfish. <i>E. coli</i>, hemorrhagic. <i>Staph. aureus</i>, extremely quick but that type of diarrhea within six hours of consuming of stuff like potato salads may present with diarrhea. <i>Yersinia enterocolitica</i> This is the one in which at times will simulate your right lower quadrant pain mimicking that of appendicitis.

So carbohydrates and foods that had been reheated in which <i>Bacillus</i> will play a role....
