I had heard it outlined as...

all the bacteria are competing for the resources ( food and such)
the less harmful bacteria grow rapidly and "squeeze out" the harmful ones who grow/divide more slowly
Kill off the less harmful ones and now the More harmful ones have the resources and space to do there thing.

I am sure that there is some truth to that - but the way things mutate naturally, could anyone really say it was a cause?
