Botulism is a fairly rare type of food poisoning in the UK mainly because of our strict hygiene controls concerning tinned or canned goods. Botulism causes paralysis rather than the more common types that give the sufferer vomiting and or diarrhoea. Botulism is caused by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It is from Clostridium Botulinum that Botox is manufactured.
