The main cause of diarrhea, however, bacterial or viral diseases of the digestive tract. We can divide the poison produced by bacteria in food, and infection of the digestive system where harmful bacteria or viral particles actually present in the intestines.

The first group of diseases is characterized by rapid onset of symptoms after ingestion of contaminated food (up to 6 hours), watery diarrhea with fierce bubbling fluid in the abdomen and nausea or vomiting. Eg. the so-called staphylococcal disease enterotoxicosis takes a long time (eg overnight) and before the patient decides to visit a doctor, the symptoms subside.

Infections of the gastrointestinal tract usually have a slower onset, longer duration, stool may be unnaturally colored (yellow-green with salmonellosis, with blood infected with Shigella, etc.) There may be other symptoms such as fever, joint pain, muscle heads, etc. At this point, it is not possible to list all producers of infectious diarrhea.
