botulinum clostridium -0.0000001g can kill -there’s an antitoxin -paralysis is a big symptom -anaerobic -can also be used for botox because it paralyzes muscles -can treat chronic anal fissures E Coli -cantaloupe poisoning because bacteria is on outside and comes in contact with knife that cuts the inside -found in intestines of animals -if intestine contents come into contact with the meat it can be contaminated, especially burgers -cook internal temperature of 70 degrees celsius/160 deg fahrenheit -food irradiation can curb the problem which kills bacteria -sprouts prone to E Coli because they’re grown in a high moisture environment and prone to bacterial contamination Hepatitis A Virus -incubation 15-50 days and infection can last months -flu like symptoms, jaundice -trichinella spiralis Bacterial Infection -where bacterium multiplies in the body Bacterial Intoxication -reaction to poisons caused by bacteria Cooking Chemical change has bearing on diet and cancer -maillard reaction, when toasted becomes brown -cooking meat causes water loss (dehydration) -polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are carcinogenic (when meats are charred) found in exhaust engines, tobacco smoke, cooked meats -heterocyclic amines, interact with DNA by intercalating with DNA by slipping into slots that DNA provides Bread -glucose + yeast = CO2 + ethanol (allows it to rise) -baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) + acid = CO2 + ethanol -baking powder (monocalcium phosphate, an acid) + sodium bicarbonate = CO2 + ethanol
