Travellers' diarrhea, sometimes called by more colourful names such as "turista" and "Montezuma's revenge", is an illness that most commonly affects people from industrialized nations who travel to areas with poor standards of hygiene and poor food handling practices. It is spread by ingesting contaminated food or water and exceptionally through direct person-to-person contact.
