After giving birth, Anna began experiencing an odd, heavy feeling in the pit of her stomach

“At the time, I wasn’t a post-natal personal trainer, so I didn’t know the dos and don’t of exercising after childbirth,” said Anna.

“I’ve always been very fit, so I threw myself into it. I almost felt I had something to prove.

“For many women, the pressure to bounce back, lose that baby weight and be back in your size eight jeans comes from magazines and celebrities, but in my case, it came from within.

“Fitness has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy it – it reduces stress and it’s my way of being there for myself.”

Cautious, Anna consulted her GP for advice, but said she did not get many answers at first.

She added: “Everyone thought it was just my body recovering, so I felt like I had to get on with things.”

When Lauren was five months old, Anna started leading fitness classes.

The exercise itself was no problem but, working out most days, her urinary incontinence worsened to the point where she struggled to teach.

Because majority of the illnesses came from prepackaged vegetables that have been passed on from suppliers to distributors to processing facilities where they were chopped and bagged, finding out where they were grown is far more cumbersome.

“It's a labor-intensive task. It requires collecting and evaluating thousands of records; and trying to accurately reproduce how the contaminated lettuce moved through the food supply chain to grocery stores, restaurants and other locations where it was sold or served to the consumers who became ill,” Gottlieb and Ostroff said in their joint statement.

This is the worst outbreak since 2006, when 205 people became ill and five died from E. coli from baby spinach.

E. coli are a type of bacteria found in undercooked beef, raw milk, soft cheeses made from raw milk, raw fruits and vegetables, and contaminated water. Most E. coli bacteria are not harmful, but one type known as E. coli O157: H7 produces a toxin called Shiga, which destroys red blood cells, causes kidney failure and bloody diarrhea. Other kinds of E. coli cause urinary tract infections, respiratory illness and pneumonia.

Health officials said children under the age of 5, seniors older than 65 and those with weak immune systems are most vulnerable. So far, the outbreak has sickened people ages 12 to 84.

In the study, researchers found that the test could detect 10 types of cancer and that it was 80 to 90 percent accurate for some cancer types.

The ability to detect cancer before any visible symptoms also gives doctors a chance to address the cancer before it has spread throughout the body, and gives the patient a better chance at recovery.
