There is an outbreak of botulism in Country X. Researchers investigated and found that many people are eating canned food without heating it because they do not have microwaves (I don't even know).

What is botulism?

Make a hypothesis.

How can people prevent themselves from getting botulism?

answer
1. Botulism is a rare foodborne illness caused by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum 2. Eating food that hasn't been heated correctly, increases your risk of contracting foodborne illnesses. 3. People can prevent themselves from getting botulism by heating food correctly.

Answer
Gram staining separates bacteria into two groups: gram-positive and gram-negative. Gram-positive bacteria appear violet while gram-negative bacteria cannot retain the violet color.

I think that's a genetic disease. I was thinking more like latent TB. Your turn!

1. Who investigated and solved the outbreak?
2. What was the cause of the Broad Street Outbreak?
3. What action did the investigator do to stop the Broad Street Outbreak (looking for specifics)

answer
graphical display that illustrates the strength of effects of treatment in many quantitative scientific studies addressing the same question and the odds ratio tells you the chance of contracting disease or illness based on your exposure status

Odds ratio is the measure of exposure between an exposure and the disease of interest, but the forest plot is correct. Your turn!
