Microbial populations in the body have the ability to self-regulation, providing ecological balance. Any adverse effects on the human body, causing a reaction microflora. Changing its quantity and quality, which results in an imbalance in the body.

As a result of such enzymatic reactions bacterial system is able to clone these more aggressive strains of E. Coli, causing infectious diseases - ehsherihioza:

  • in the intestine - enteritis (inflammation of the small intestine);
