Salmonella Infection Linked to Rattlesnake Pills: CDC
Daily Health Tips - Daily Health News
Jupiter, FL Dentist

A case of salmonella infection has been linked to rattlesnake pills, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

Latest Infectious Disease News

The pills -- made from dehydrated, powdered rattlesnake meat -- are marketed for various conditions, including cancer and HIV infection.

In this case, a person in Kansas became ill with salmonella a week after taking rattlesnake pills. Tests showed that the salmonella that caused the person's illness was the same as that found in rattlesnake pills from Mexico that were collected in a previous, unrelated investigation, according to the CDC.

If you're considering taking rattlesnake pills, talk to your health care provider first, the agency advised.

This is especially important for people who are more likely to get severe salmonella infections, including pregnant women, children younger than 5 years, seniors, and people with weakened immune systems, including those who are receiving chemotherapy or have HIV.
