According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are more than 150 kinds of Candida, but in most cases yeast infections are caused by Candida albicans. Normally candida doesn’t do harm, it takes part in digestion and nutrient absorption. However, when the yeast population gets out of control, it leads to dangerous consequences.
