Brain eating amoeba found in Louisiana Parish' water supply

http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/12/us/lou...html?hpt=hp_t2


The scary part -- they're telling people it's safe to drink!

Sure, the risk of transmission is astronomically low -- but people win the lottery all the time and I'd say the chances of taking a swig and somehow shooting some up into your sinus cavity is substantially greater than your chances of being the next lottery winner.

Not to mention, people shower and such with this water.

What an incredibly irresponsible thing to do.


Go ahead, people, trust your government... I'll bet you none of their families will be drinking that water, though. Someone should take a tall glass and have them drink it down while they're making such statements.


Mmmm yummy!

Since it infects the brain through the sinus cavity then I guess bathing or showering would be out of the question if you want to play it safe.

I just changed my bug-out plan if the zombies attack.

Zombies eat brains, right?
