Colon infection is a chronic digestive disease that refers to inflammation of the inner lining of the colon. It is also called colitis, which is the large intestine.

Most colon infection is caused by consuming such food, which the digestive system has to work hard to digest. Or we can say that food is not digested adequately in our body. This type of waste food starts to accumulate in the colon as well as the chemicals that are made in the digestive system to digest such food, and they also begin to accumulate in different ways and cause damage.
