E. coli (full name Escherichia coli) is a gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium. Contrary to popular belief, most strains of E. coli are harmless or even beneficial: many strains aid in our digestion. However, E. coli has gained a bad reputation from strain O157:H7, which can be present in hamburgers and occasionally causes severe disease.
I am happy to have many strains of Escherichia coli in my stomach right now, but I'd like to avoid E. coli O157:H7.

The innocuous appearing, yet horribly contaminated, foreign-water cubes of misery that wreak holy-fucking-hell on unsuspecting Traveller bowels.
So, I didn't actually DRINK the water, or eat ANYTHING washed in water ... it was the E-coli cubes that took me down; never again!
