Causes of Dysentry

Here is a list of causes that lead to dysentery:

  • Dysentery is caused by amoebae, which are tiny organisms that exist as parasites and are spread through contaminated food and water when either is swallowed. By consuming contaminated food, they move into the intestines via the stomach. Amoebae spread by forming infective cysts, which can be found in feces and spread if whoever touches it does not wash their hands.
  • Disease causing germs can cause dysentery. The germs, which are supposed to cause this disease, develop in the colon only as a result of disintegration of excessive quantities of animal protein food, fried substances, too-spiced foods and hard-to-digest fatty substances.
  • The real cause of dysentery is thus dietary indiscretion and eating of excessive amounts of meat or fish in hot weather or tropical climate, which is unsuitable to the digestion of such foods.
  • Other causes include debility, fatigue, and chill, lowered vitality, intestinal disorders and overcrowding under unsanitary conditions.
