Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia Coli

AKA Enterohemorrhagic E.Coli AKA EHEC


Attacks the digestive system by the digestion of under cooked meat and unpurified milk and cider, sometimes leads to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS)


Children and older adults are normally at high risk of this infection if they eat meat that isn't cooked all the way through and if they digest unpasteurized milk. People who handle raw meat, like butchers are also known to be fallen victim to the disease.


The victim normally undergoes symptoms like bloody diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, fatigue, nausea, and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS.) Damage to the intestinal wall is also an effect.

It can be found in the intestines of healthy humans, most warmblooded animals, and in vegetables.


To defend yourself from EHEC, you can cook your meat all the way through and making sure your milk and cider has been pasteurized. Prevention from it is to wash your hands after handling uncooked meat, keeping your raw foods away from your cooked food, and washing your utensils you used with raw foods. There is no treatment for this, so all you can do is manage the symptoms until it goes away in 5-7 days.
