About risk factors:

Risk factors for Vibrio parahaemolyticus 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 Vibrio parahaemolyticus makes the chances of getting a condition higher but does not always lead to Vibrio parahaemolyticus. Also, the absence of any risk factors or having a protective factor does not necessarily guard you against getting Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
