Food Poisoning Outbreaks Digested

Food Poisoning Outbreaks Digested infographic

The Food Poisoning Outbreaks Digested infographic is the static graphic winner for the Food Poisoning challenge put on by Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards. Designed by Andrew Park, the infographic ranks the number of food outbreaks within different categories like specific cuisine or the toxin/pathogen. 

Using a Sankey diagram, the visualisation charts the percentage breakdown for food poisoning outbreaks by national cuisine, food type, pathogen/toxin and contributing factor where the cuisine type was known.

The diagram concludes with the “most lethal combination”, highlighting the top factors that led to an outbreak.

I thought it would add context to frame the Sankey diagram in a human body, as though it was being eaten and spreading through the body like a disease.

I really like this approach to a Sankey Diagram that breaks the original total into four different categories of data.

Digestive system is one of the most important organ inside of the human body because it is connected to everything in the body. Many people get heartburns because of what they are putting into their bodies. The key thing into having a good digestive system is proper nutrition. Many people put toxins in their bodies and over time it will cause the digestive system to fail in putting out toxins into the body that will cause many other problems that we face everyday as far as high blood pressure, sugar diabetes, liver failure, and kidney failure. The lack of water in the body can cause a lot of problems as well, because water helps break down foods in the body, plus you consume less sugar by not drinking sodas, and alcohol. Pork, and processed foods also give off toxins in the body that can cause health problems as well. I believe that the government knows about this, but still put out this stuff in order to make money just off people bad health that carries health insurance.
