      This is one of the most dangerous known pathogens, with a 50 percent fatality rate for those infected. The researchers thus cautioned against consuming seafood and other potential exposure to the bacteria, stating, “Millions of euros in health costs may result from human consumption of contaminated seafood, ingestion of waterborne pathogens, and, to a lesser degree, through direct occupational or recreational exposure to marine disease.”
