Fascioliasis is a type of parasitic disease caused by the liver fluke, a type of parasitic flatworm. It is transmitted to humans through the ingestion of contaminated food, particularly raw or undercooked freshwater plants such as watercress. Symptoms of fascioliasis may include abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, and jaundice. In severe cases, the infection can cause damage to the liver, bile ducts, and other organs. Fascioliasis is treated with antiparasitic medication. It can be prevented by thoroughly cooking all freshwater plants before consumption and practicing good hygiene when handling potentially contaminated food.
