Cyclospora is a tiny parasite attaching itself to fruits and vegetables, making people sick across the country.

Health officials have had trouble pinpointing where it originated, but it's believed you can get cyclospora from either eating or drinking something with feces on it.

As far as symptoms go: Watery diarrhea, frequent explosive diarrhea, loss of appetite, stomach aches, bloating and nausea.
