E. Coli infection causes:

One of the most common ways through which people can get the bacteria into their systems is by consuming food that has been contaminated by feces of either humans or animals. This can be by eating from places that have pathetic sanitary conditions. E. coli is most commonly found in the meat processing industry when the meat in not heated in 160 degree Fahrenheit. The bacteria survive and infect the person who consumes the meat. This is the most common source ofE. coli infection for the people in the United States.

Apart from this E. coli can also be found in the raw milk and dairy processing industry where bacteria can be transferred from the cow’s udder to the milk. Also raw leafy vegetables like cabbage, lettuce, alfalfa, sprouts and various other vegetables can contain strains of the E. coli bacteria. Water that is contaminated with human feces or animal feces can also be a source of E. coli bacteria spread. People can get infected if the water sources have not been purified properly by the authorities and are unfit for consumption. E. coli can also spread from one person to another especially when the person who has been infected does not practice hygienic sanitary practices before eating and after bowel movements.


Treatments for E. coli do not include the use of antibiotics as that can increase the risk of serious complications. Sometimes dialysis is also used to filter the blood and blood transfusion is also recommended.
