Prevalance of Marine toxins:

Every year, approximately 30 cases of poisoning by marine toxins are reported in the United States. Because healthcare providers are not required to report these illnesses and because many milder cases are not diagnosed or reported, the actual number of poisonings may be much greater.

About prevalence and incidence statistics:

The term 'prevalence' of Marine toxins usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Marine toxins at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Marine toxins refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Marine toxins diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence.
