If coliform bacteria are native to human colons, why the big concern over coliform contamination?
According to the question, we have to mention the solution of the question asked above i.e. If coliform bacteria are native to human colons, the reason for the big concern over coliform contamination. So, let us have a look at the solution.
Coliform bacteria are the kind of organisms that are present in the environment and in the feces of all warm-blooded animals and humans. These types of bacteria will not likely cause any illness to animals including humans. Though, their presence in the drinking water indicates that there is a possibility of disease-causing causing organisms like pathogens could be there in the water system and that can be harmful to the Humans if they drink or take it. So, we can say that although they are native to the human colon, if they are found in an open environment like a water system, it should be a big concern over coliform contamination.
