Waterborne diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms which are directly transmitted when contaminated drinking water is consumed


Foodborne disease is caused by consuming contaminated foods or beverages. Many different disease-causing microbes, or pathogens, can contaminate foods, so there are many different foodborne infections. In addition, poisonous chemicals, or other harmful substances can cause foodborne diseases if they are present in food
