Escherichia coli (E.coli) is one of several types of bacteria that normally inhabit the intestine of humans and animals (commensal organism). Some strains of E. coli are capable of causing disease under certain conditions when the immune system is compromised or disease may result from an environmental exposure.
There are many types of E. coli, and most of them are innocuous. However, some can cause bloody diarrhea. Some strains of E. coli bacteria may also cause severe anemia or kidney failure, which can lead to death. Other strains of E. coli can activate urinary tract infections or infections of other organs.
You get an E. coli infection by coming into contact with the feces or stool of humans or animals. This can happen when you drink contaminated water or eat food that has been polluted by feces.
