What causes stomach bacteria?
Just as organisms have evolved to survive in a rock pool or under the bark of a tree, so to has bacteria evolved to survive in the stomach of humans and animals. One pound of the weight of an adult human is from bacteria alone. These bacteria are largely beneficial and prevent pathogenic (illness inducing) bacteria such as pathogenic E. Coli from multiplying by competing for space and nutrients. As to what causes it, when a newborn is breastfed the milk contains enzymes and bacteria (without exposing the baby to these it will have a weaker immune system as an infant). Bacteria grow from this milk and continue to grow until the body cools after death. Food introduces new bacteria (even if it looks Exceedingly Good) which is usually out competed and dies, or it may cause illness (such as food poisoning or stomach upset) and be flushed out by time or drugs.

Bacteria is not actually caused, it exists in nature. Bacteria issometimes caused to grow with temperature changes or with theintroduction of food to an environment.
indigestion. gas accumulation due to indigestion. bowels not cleared. if it is a longstanding problem could be ulcers, worms
Rumen bacteria has been obtained when they were young calves when they mouthed, licked or eaten various things that contain bacteria that another cow or calf has also mouthed, licked or eaten, thus directly transferring bacteria and thus swallowing it into their digestive tracts. A calf will also ge…t bacteria from suckling on a calf nipple from a bottle or bucket that has not been sterilized, and also from the teat of his dam. Mature cows (and bulls) will ingest bacteria much the same way as a calf will, minus the suckling from a bottle or momma's udder. ( Full Answer )
Bacteria can cause a wide number of infections and diseases. Someof these include food poisoning, tonsillitis, gastroenteritis,conjunctivitis and urinary tract infection.
There are many reasons on why a person can have stomach pain. Youcould be getting a bug.
Can salmonella food poisoning bacteria stay in the lining of the stomach and the bowel causing more vommiting and dihorreau?

Heliobacter is the primary cause of stomach ulcers That should be spelled helicobacter. Specifically, the bacteria is called helicobacter pylori. The organism is helical and is found near the pyloric valve (between stomach and small instesine). pyloric = gateway (greek).
First I believe the distinction between bloating and distention must be established. Bloating is the feeling you get when your abdominal region is larger while distention is the actual " physical " finding that your abdominal area is larger than normal. Distention is a more serious conditi…on than bloating, and it can be caused by three different things: . Air . Fluid . Tissue Gas is the most common cause of bloating and distention. Some causes of these gasses include; . Lactose and food intolerance . Irritable Bowel Syndrome . Food allergies . Gas-producing foods . Beans . Vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, onions, artichokes and asparagus . Fruits such as pears, apples, peaches . Whole grains - whole wheat, bran . Soft and fruit drinks . Milk or milk products . Artificial sweeteners - Sorbitol & fructose The production of gases is not the only cause of bloating, distention, gas and flatulence. Other common causes of pain and discomfort could be: . Overeating . Alvarez' syndrome (neurotic bloating with out the presence of gas) . Partial bowel obstruction . Constipation . Menstruation and premenstrual stress syndrome . Polycystic ovary syndrome and ovarian cysts . Intestinal Parasties . Diverticulosis or diverticulitis . Peri-menopause & menopause ( Full Answer )
There are many reasons you may have throbbing in your stomachincluding the fact that you ate something that didn't agree withyou. You can also be having trouble with your appendix.
A source has not been clarified, but some causes could be from disorders, infections, and diet. While these are not necessarily causes, there are certain risk factors for developing stomach cancer. These include: . A diet that is high in salty and smoked foods . A diet that is low in fruits and …vegetables . A family history of stomach cancer . Infection with the bacteria Helicobacter pylori . Long-term stomach inflammation/chronic gastritis . Stomach polyps . Smoking . Pernicious anemia ( Full Answer )
There are four types of bacteria found in the rumen, as follows: . Cellulose digesting bacteria . Fibrobacter succinogenes . Ruminococcus albus . Ruminococcus flavefaciens . Hemicellulose digesting bacteria . Fibrobacter succinogenes . Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens . Prevotella rumin…icola . Starch digesting bacteria . Ruminobacter amylophilus . Succinomonas amylolytica . Streptococcus bovis . Lactate utilizing bacteria . Selenomonas ruminantium . Megasphera elsdenii ( Full Answer )
Air pockets and eating the wrong food either too late at night or too early.
DO NOT CONSIDER TRYING THIS! The bleach will severely injure you mouth, throat, and vocal cordslong before reaching your stomach. You will almost certainly needto be hospitalised and have your stomach pumped. The bleach mighteven kill you .
Bacteria cause disease. Most of these bacteria, like those listed below make their presence felt immediatley and may or may not result in death. Some people though, can be infected with a bacterium that normally causes a disease and not show any harmfull effects at all, people like this are called c…arriers. ( Full Answer )
Bacteria are microscopic organisms whose single cells have neither a membrane-bounded nucleus nor other membrane-bounded organelles like mitochondria and chloroplasts. Another group of microbes, the archaea, meet these criteria but are so different from the bacteria in other ways that they must have… had a long, independent evolutionary history since close to the dawn of life. In fact, there is considerable evidence that you are more closely related to the archaea than they are to the bacteria ( Full Answer )
There are several types of bacteria in the rumen of a bovine thathave different jobs to do. But basically, their main job is tobreak down the fibrous material found in the coarse plant materialthat a cow so commonly eats so that she can obtain energy, protein,VFAs (volatile fatty acids), vitamins an…d minerals to feed the verylarge population of microflora in the rumen and reticulum, which inturn feed her.

Eagles swallow big chunks of fish and small animals or birds, bones and all. To digest them and to prevent sharp, jagged bone edges from piercing their intestines, eagle stomachs produce extremely strong acids. These acids also destroy most bacteria, so that when eagles are scavenging on dead fish a…nd other animals, they don't get sick. ( Full Answer )
I keep bacteria in my stomach, my dr. Prescribe antibiotics& i take it for 15 days, but the bacteria keeps coming back& we don't understand. This time she is requesting a stoolsample after i finish the medication.
The stomach acid makes the stomach a particularly hostile environment for bacteria. It is an too acidic an environment for most microorganisms to survive. In addition there are proteases that will digest most cells.
If you eat too much food or swallowing food not properly chewed. Inother words indigestion.
The human stomach is generally free from bacteria. Most bacteria which are swallowed either with food or in mucus from the upper repiratory tract are killed due to the low pH (acid) conditions.. Some lactobaccili can survive in the stomach.. Helicobacter pylori may grow in the stomach and cause st…omach ulcers. It does this by producing urease which forms ammonium to neutralise the acid around itself.. Mycobacterium tuberculosis may survive in the stomach and be avilable to recolonise the lungs. ( Full Answer )
A large portion of bacteria, though not all, can not survive in a low pH environment such as stomach acid. The bacteria dies from the corresive nature of low a low pH solution.
Yes, the stomach do kill bacteria. But in the presence of Hydrochloric acid (HCl). This acid can be harmful to the human body also if mucous layer lining the internal layer of the stomach and the alimentary canal is destroyed resulting in peptic ulcer.
the stomach is lined with a phlem like substance called mucus and it protects your stomach from bacteria and the acids inside your stomach from eating itself away.
There are many causes of stomach cancer inluding a bacteria called H. pylori, chronic gastritis, hereditary factors, and dietary factors.
The severe acidity of the stomach was thought to be too extreme forbacteria to survive.
The chewed food passes from our mouth to the oesophagus (gullet) . When it reaches our stomach the enzymes that are inside speed up the digestion process. This shows that a chemical reaction is taking place, when food is being digested. Later, the food passes from our stomach to other parts of our b…ody and the things we ate before comes out when we excrete. ( Full Answer )
Although people often feel sleepy after a meal, eating makes the stomach, gallbladder, and pancreas begin important work. Stomach acids and bile salts from the gallbladder begin to break down food. Glucose from foods triggers insulin to be released from the pancreas. All the activity going on create…s sounds, much like the various humming and ticking sounds when we first turn on a bunch of fans. Doctors and nurses actually listen for sounds from the stomach and intestines (collectively called bowel sounds) to assess whether the digestive tract is healthy and working. While there can be hypermotility sounds, usually a noisy gut is simply the normal digestive workings and should be of no concern. In patients with high gas, the lower bowel (more than the stomach) will give a wide range of sounds. Interestingly, the stomach and bowel make a variety of sounds, from low rumblings to high-pitched "tings" like someone hitting a glass with a spoon. ( Full Answer )
Most definitely! Our stomach contents are highly acidic, which not only helps to break down food but also destroy bacteria and other foreign agents that may harm us.
Quite simply, the bacteria are acid-stable which is to say, they can live just fine in a pH that low (about 2). Bacteria throughout the world have adapted biochemically in order to survive in various extreme environments such as the thermophiles in the springs at Yellowstone national park.
Stomach issues are usually caused by the NSAIDs (ie aspirin, naprosyn, etc.) prescribed for pain. Your doctor may change your medications or prescribe a pill specifically to help relieve the problem (ie prilosec, zantac). However, you can try taking the meds with a meal to help alleviate the problem…. Also, drinking hot tea can help settle your stomach. ( Full Answer )
Yes. Bacteria in the stomach aid in digestion and are "rewarded" by being able to eat some of the food themselves.
the digestive system produces a hydrochloric acid medium for the action of pepsin without which it would be impossible to digest proteins. this hydrochloric acid emission causes the pH of the stomach.
Anything that penetrates, punctures, tears/rips the abdominal skin and penetrates to the organs can cause an abdominal wound. If you mean only the stomach (the organ), you can also acquire wounds if something sharp or a foreign body was swallowed/ingested and got stuck in the stomach organ and could… not pass into the small intestines. Additionally, chemical ingestion (including drugs) can cause stomach lining erosion, thus creating a "wound" in the stomach lining. Even a simple stomach ulcer (which can be serious/life threatening), can cause a "wound" to the lining of the stomach and can perforate (break through) the stomach wall. ( Full Answer )
If you are saying that you have the stomach flu( AKA Salmonella ) then you can eat small portions of food( mostly bread products such as noodles or plain simply bread, I usually eat ramen noodles lol ) after you have thrown up. If you have not thrown up, or your chances of throwing up are slim, you …may eat whatever you want whenever you want, but stay away from citris like foods such as Orange Juice, starbursts, Lemons, ETC. I hope I answered your question... Hope my answer helped :) ( Full Answer )
being pregnant or eating too much, also ovarian cancers or tumors and food or gluten allergies as well as constipation,gas and drinking too much.
Inability to belch out gases due to build up of bubbly foam caused by eating too much grain or high-protein legumes like clover and alfalfa. Bloat is often a result of cattle being set out on a alfalfa or clover field on an empty stomach, or overloading on a favorite treat.
for girls - they are going through thier periods for the first time they get it and also when they get thier periods after a month the first when you gonna recieve it, it will pain. its gonna feel like you are very hungry
When we eat, our stomach becomes sensitive. So if you move too much after eating (especially eating a lot), you will feel stomach pain. But it's not true that we can get appendicitis when we move too much after eating. (Hope you like my answer) =)
Yes, that is one of the roles that the stomach acid plays. However, some bacteria, such as E.Coli are adapted for life inside a digestive tract and can survive conditions inside the stomach.
I believe it does for me. I get really bad cramps/pain in my upper abdomen. It comes on several hours after ingestion and lasts 8 hours or more! Very painful to the point that I can't sleep all night when I've had honey in the evening. It takes less than a Tbsp. and is the same with raw and regular …organic honey. I've also heard that people can get swollen lips from contact. Honey allergy/sensitivity isn't common, but you can find some anecdotal evidence online. ( Full Answer )
due to its high acid level the stomach is normally quite sterile with very little bacteria. The bacteria which is known to cause ulcers is helicobacter pylori, also known as H.pylori.
The are gram negative bacillus shaped bacteria. They are facultative anaerobic bacteria. They ferment the glucose to produce acid and gas. They ferment the sulfur containing amino acids to produce H2S gas. They do not ferment the lactose.
In the stomach they are associated, in greater than 90% of all cases, with the bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).
I'm certain I have lots of bacteria in my stomach; I probably have a significant number of viruses there as well. The term "stomach whatever" is sometimes colloquially used to mean "an illness that makes someone throw up". It's completely unscientific anyway and almost certainly not based on an act…ual medical diagnosis, so worrying about which is the correct term is kind of pointless. ( Full Answer )
The stomach contains a highly acidic mixture of enzymes, acids, etc. Specifically, the inside of the stomach is acidic to allow the enzyme pepsin to work at its maximum efficiency. The use of hydrochloric acid (HCl) acidifies to stomach juices to around a pH of 2. This highly acidic environment allo…ws the destruction of bacteria. The acidic nature of the stomach contents can denature bacterial enzymes, DNA, etc. Therefore, I would say that the acidity of the stomach is what helps destroy bacteria, and prevent infections from said bacteria.

Give the cow something that she would eat, like grass or hay. Ifyou are wanting to switch diets, GO SLOW. Don't switch her to atotally different diet in one day, drag it out, by increments, overseveral weeks so the bacteria in her stomach have time to adjust. It's also very important to feed a cow …for optimum rumination anddigestion, not maximum digestion like you would with monogastricslike hogs and poultry. ( Full Answer )
it is good b/c it breaks down the grass so the cow does not choke
Not in your stomach as it is too acidic for bacteria. Cows have a stomach compartment just for bacterial digestive action that produces methane. Perhaps in your intestinal region methane can be produced.
The ancestors of modern bacteria were unicellular microorganismsthat were the first forms of life to appear on Earth, about 4billion years ago. In a laboratoy, bacteria are grown from a solidor liquid material.
