E.coli, an infection that struck europe

Mike Adams: European E.Coli Superbug Bioengineered To Produce Human Fatalities 1/2 (Health And Medical Video July 2018).

Infected E. coli E. coli vegetables caused the death of at least 19 people, 2,200 are considered injured.

Fresh cucumbers, tomatoes and green salad were a deadly poison for 19 people in Germany. In total, more than two thousand lovers of fresh vegetables from Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Great Britain and the Netherlands have suffered.

According to experts, acute intestinal disease was caused by the bacterium E. coli (E.coli), which allegedly were infected with vegetables imported from Spain.

Are Spaniards Injured - It's difficult to say, as the trade links between the countries of the European Union are so intertwined that it is very difficult to establish the source and ways of spreading the infection.

As it turned out, the invisible E. coli E. coli invisible to the naked eye causes not only serious illnesses with a fatal outcome, but also an international scandal with a serious economic loss.

E.coli: you really need a stick

Escherichia coli, a common abbreviation for E. coli, is a kind of gram-negative rodent bacteria that are part of the normal microflora of the human gastrointestinal tract.

It appears already in newborns and lives in the intestines of all human life, performing very important functions. There is a large number of varieties of E. coli, including over 100 pathogenic (ie pathogenic) types. E. coli suppresses the growth of harmful bacteria and participates in the synthesis of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12; In the exchange of cholesterol, bilirubin, choline, bile and fatty acids, affects the absorption of iron and calcium.

E. coli E. coli are taken from the intestinal lumen oxygen, detrimental to useful bifidobacteria and lactobacillus.

… And very vivacious

E. coli is more resistant in the environment compared to other enterobacteria are stored for a long time in the soil, water and feces.

But drying the stick, too, is well tolerated. It is able to multiply in foods, especially in milk. Get rid of it can be influenced by boiling or disinfectants (bleach, formaldehyde, phenol, mercuric chloride, sodium hydroxide, etc.).

Polyhedra E.coli

Escherichia coli - infectious diseases, accompanied by intoxication and fever. Pathogenic or pathogenic serotypes of E. coli, "not being in place" that is penetrating through the intestinal mucosa into the abdominal cavity (in violation of the integrity of the intestinal wall), the bladder or blood - in those tissues and organs that normally sterile, Cause diseases of these organs or even sepsis.

Intestinal infections caused by E. coli

When a tourist from developed countries falls into the unusual or areas with poor sanitation, its external impressions are usually added to traveler's diarrhea - bacterial gastroenteritis caused by the same E. coli.

Infection with enterotoxic strains of E. coli usually occurs when consuming raw water and raw unwashed vegetables.

The mechanism of transmission is fecal-oral. The amount of pathogen should be sufficient to withstand the destructive effects of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Full or partial absence of free hydrochloric acid in gastric juice - a condition called ahlorhydryey, predisposes to disease.

As a result of increased volume of fluid secreted intestines, and in a day or two after infection appear intestinal cramps and frequent bowel movements rapid. The symptoms of the disease are kept for three to four days.

Outbreaks of hospital gastroenteritis, in the clinical picture very similar to dysentery (fever, bloody diarrhea), cause enteropathogenic strains of E. coli. Enterohemorrhagic strains of E. coli cause hemorrhagic colitis - acute bloody diarrhea.

Urinary tract infections caused by E. coli

The development of hemolytic uremic syndrome - causes of acute renal failure in young children - provokes diarrhea caused by E. soli (70-85% of cases). The disease is accompanied by a lesion of the central nervous system, up to the coma.

The main causative agent of the infection in the urinary system is the experts called the intestinal rod - it causes almost 80% of community-acquired infections of the urinary tract and genitourinary organs.

Especially often such infection occurs in women, and infection occurs directly from the gastrointestinal tract with insufficient respect for hygiene and due to the anatomical structure, as well as the consequence of the use of specific sexual practices.

About inflammation in the urinary tract, urinary bladder and kidneys caused by E. coli, bacteriuria - the presence of an intestinal stick in the urine.

Infections of the abdominal cavity caused by E. coli

E. soli is the most common causative agent of purulent peritonitis. Entering into the abdominal cavity through the intestinal wall, E. coli causes abscesses of the abdominal cavity, cholecystitis (acute or chronic inflammatory disease of the gallbladder), including emphysematous, which is characterized by high frequency of complications and mortality.

Patients with diabetes mellitus and atherosclerosis are prone to the greatest risk of such complications when infected with E. coli.


Getting into the blood, E. soli causes the most severe disease - sepsis, dangerous septic shock, in which develops dysfunction of many organs, and even with intensive therapy, the level of lethality is very high.

Another consequence of sepsis is a multiple organ failure, in which the organ or system is damaged to such an extent that it is not able to support the life-sustaining organism that leads to death.


Modern industrial microbiology and biological engineering can not do without E. coli, for them it is a wand, a vermilion, which plays an important role in science.

The colon is considered a universal organism for the synthesis of foreign proteins and the development of vaccines. Various specially selected strains of E. soli are part of some medications.
