Brain-Eating Amoeba

Sound strange? Looks like it is for real apparently six people have died of this rare disease contracted from the Naegleria fowleri found in warm bodies of freshwater. The amoeba enters through the nose typically when people are swimming, there were 23 deaths from 1995/2004 and there are six already in this year. Upon reading about this it can also inhabit swimming pools that are not in top order and have little chlorine in them, makes one sure think a lot don’t it.
