YOU **CAN'T*** GET IT FROM DRINKING WATER

AND ONLY THREE PEOPLE OUT OF 132 CASES HAVE SURVIVED

YOU MAY REMEMBER ZACHARY REYNA--HE'S THE LA BELLE BOY WHO GOT THIS AMOEBA WHILE KNEE BOARDING IN A WATER-FILLED DITCH LAST SUMMER.

I REMEMBER HIS FAMILY TELLING ME-- HE WAS PLAYING WITH HIS FRIENDS ONE MINUTE AND THEN THE NEXT-- HIS MOTHER KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

THESE ARE SOME THE SYMPTOMS:

HEADACHE-- FEVER-- VOMITING-- STIFF NECK-- AND EVENTUALLY A COMA. Return to index of stories...


BRAIN EATING AMOEBA-PLASMA


HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELF?

WHEN IN FRESHWATER--SWIM ABOVE THE WATER-- OR WEAR NOSE PLUGS.

THE KEY HERE-- IS EDUCATION.
