Prevent and Treat Amebiasis

Amebiasis is caused by drinking and eating improperly prepared and unsanitized food and water in countries where the living conditions are unhygienic. It is caused by a parasite called entamoeba histolytica which can live in the intestines without causing problems in some people, but in others will cause vomiting, diarrhea and other forms of stomach upset.
