"E coli is named after Theodor Escherich, a German pediatrician who discovered it in 1885. Coli means “from the colon” and is used because it is commonly found in the colon of mammals (including humans)."
BEST WAY TO ACQUIRE/SPREAD
The E. coli bacteria usually lives in the intestines of animals. When humans eat the contaminated food, they usually get infected with the disease.
E.coli doesn't usually get passed between people but if a person doesn't take practice proper hygiene, another person may get it. For example, if a person doesn't wash their hands after using the bathroom and prepares someones food, the person who eats the food may get the disease.
E. coli can be prevented by making sure you wash you hands every time one uses the bathroom
Wash utensils with hot soapy water
Wash counter tops before and after they come into contact with fresh produce
Most people recover from E. coli infections in 5 to 10 days without the need for medicine.
