Transmission of the Infection

Model of the spread of the parasite. It has two parts to its life cycle, dormant cyst and trophozoite.CDC.

Include some current research, with at least one figure showing data.

Every point of information REQUIRES CITATION using the citation tool shown above.


Giardia binds to the inner lining of the small intestines. The more trophozoites it has, the higher the infection.University Health.

Include some current research, with at least one figure showing data.

Prevalence in Day Care Centers

Other environmental conditions play a factor in the spread Giardia lamblia. Poor hygiene and sanitation are frequent ways the parasite is spread. Santos et al. in 2012.

Include some current research, with at least one figure showing data.
