Jumaat, 27 Januari 2012

"TOXOPLASMA atau yang dikenal dengan istilah virus kucing sangat berbahaya. Virus tersebut dapat menyebabkan keguguran, cacat pada bayi, bahkan menimbulkan kematian. Toxoplasma merupakan virus dari hewan mamalia seperti kucing yang menular kepada manusia. 
Setiap virus yang masuk ke tubuh manusia akan menimbulkan infeksi, termasuk toxoplasma. Virus kucing tersebut dapat menimbulkan keguguran bagi ibu hamil. Selain itu, dapat pula menimbulkan kecacatan pada bayi, seperti hydrochepalus atau penumpukan cairan di kepala yang mengakibatkan pembengkakan kepala pada anak."  - Fajar Lifestyle 

"What is toxoplasmosis?
Toxoplasmosis (toxo) is an infection caused by a single-celled parasite called Toxoplasma gondii. The infection is most commonly acquired from contact with cats and their feces or with raw or undercooked meat. 
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than 60 million people in the United States may carry the Toxoplasma parasite, but very few have symptoms because a healthy immune system usually keeps the parasite from causing illness.
What factors increase the risk of acquiring toxo? 
The following situations potentially expose a person to the toxoplasma parasite and increase the risk of acquiring toxoplasmosis:
  • touching your hands to your mouth after gardening, cleaning a cat's litter box, or anything that came into contact with cat feces
  • eating raw or partly cooked meat, especially pork (hah, yang memang sumpah tak berkenaan!), lamb, or venison
  • touching your hands to your mouth after contact with raw or undercooked meat
  • organ transplantation or transfusion (this is rare)
If a woman is pregnant when she is infected with toxo, the infection can be transmitted from her to the baby with sometimes catastrophic consequences." -Medicinenet
