Risk factors discussion:
If you eat
raw or undercooked meats, particularly pork, bear, wild feline (such as a
cougar), fox, dog, wolf, horse, seal, or walrus, you are at risk for
trichinosis. (Source: excerpt from Trichinosis: DPD)
About risk factors:
Risk factors for Trichinosis are factors that do not seem
to be a direct cause of the disease,
but seem to be associated in some way.
Having a risk factor for Trichinosis
makes the chances
of getting a condition higher but does
not always lead to Trichinosis.
Also, the absence of any risk factors
or having a protective factor does not necessarily
guard you against getting Trichinosis.
For general information and a list of risk factors,
see the risk center.
