Yea, that's right, E. Coli is usually the beneficial type because it lives inside your stomach, helping you get vitamin k and digest your food. Without it, you'd die. But many of ya'll take it as a pathogen with all the horrid news that goes on about it, and because the news stations either don't describe the bacteria or because they do, but people don't pay attention to that. The thing is that E. Coli is naturally harmless but if under the right conditions, it mutates and a deadly strain could form. And that is probably the strain that most people would only know about.
