Wherever you go you there will be bacteria. This is not usually a problem because we have defenses against those that might do us harm. Our defenses are not impenetrable, however, meaning that we can occasionally fall ill. Even then, our defenses are usually still strong enough to keep us from serious harm.

Some of these bacteria will come from other animals, so we will need to be careful when around them. One such example is the Brucella bacteria which can be transmitted from many animals. It can make us quite ill, and the disease can last with us for a long time in some cases. The disease caused by this bacterium is known as Brucellosis.

1. Brucella

Brucellosis is an infection that is caused by the Brucella bacterium. There are different strains of the bacterium and each strain is able to infect different species of animal, including humans. It is not a common disease in the developed world, largely because the disease has been controlled through various programs.

While the disease is usually treatable, it can also be very dangerous in some cases so it is wise to get treatment as soon as possible. However, the early signs are likely to be overlooked because at first it will appear as though the patient has the flu, or similar.
