How many cases of foodborne disease are there in the United States?
An estimated 76 million cases of foodborne disease occur each year in the United States. The great majority of these cases are mild and cause symptoms for only a day or two. Some cases are more serious, and CDC estimates that there are 325,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths related to foodborne diseases each year. The most severe cases tend to occur in the very old, the very young, those who have an illness already that reduces their immune system function, and in healthy people exposed to a very high dose of an organism.
CIRI is a 501.c.3 not-for-profit institute and community whose mission is to foster cleaner, healthier, more productive indoor environments through science. CIRI members include scientists, medical doctors, public health and cleaning industry professionals, academics, and others interested in joining in enlightened discourse about the application of cleaning science to health and improved operations.
