While your infosheet is well-intentioned, it leaves the implication that ingestion from 2007 can cause symptoms in 2009! This implication is a gross exaggeration of the infection process taught in schools and smacks of the same emotionalism and sensationalism that are ruining the credibility of the regular media. Now that I question your integrity, further messages by your organization will also be treated with mistrust... Which may make ME patient zero for the next outbreak that YOU could have prevented by JUST TELLING THE FACTS! "E coli can cause paralysis, meet Stephanie Smith!"

Each year, there are approximately 73,000 cases of E. Coli. This number may seem low in comparison to other infections, but in knowing how preventable it is; it is a big number. After reading through your website, it is clear that your organization has the same passion for E. Coli awareness, as Disease.com. Here, at Disease.com (a non profit website dedicated to the preventions and treatments of diseases) we realize how important establishing awareness is. That is why we have worked with several elite non profit organizations in the past. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Together, we can turn 73,000 into 0.If you want more information on that please email me back with the subject line as your URL.
