Diarrhea:

“Diarrhea is another very common stomach ailments described by frequent bowel movements (stools) that are loose and watery. It is very common and usually not serious. Some people have diarrhea often as part of irritable bowel syndrome or other chronic diseases of the large intestine.  It can be caused by viruses or bacterial infection, or more seriously by their toxins causing acute food poisoning.”

“During digestion, food is acted upon by enzymes present in the stomach. Undigested food travels to the small intestine and colon in liquid form. These organs begin to absorb the water turning the food into a more solid form. Viruses or bacteria can increase the liquid that is secreted and moves too quickly through the digestive track for the water to be absorbed.”
