Australian researchers have uncovered a bacteria better known as "Map" which is a sort of bacteria that lurks in frozen temperatures such as your freezer.
Registered Dietician Jennifer Sygo explains that the bacteria exists in soil and up to extremely cold temperatures , The concern though is much more frightening then that , the contaminated soil may come to contact with any food which means that it would be contaminated as well.
Map bugs have been found in the intestines of children who have been diagnosed with Crohn's disease.
This disease apparently has no known cure and no one's even quite sure what the cause of it is. Could this now leard to a potential explanation? The bug can only be Destroyed with temperatures of minus 18 or 165 above Celsius.
