Well Rick, once again the reader of this story is misdirected by lies, half truths and B.S.

That's your opinion.

First they fail to say where this little girl was swimming.

It wasn't relevant to the story.

Second they said only one person in the U.S. died last year. I suppose they forgot about the case of the teenager in lake Havisu, Arizona who died from this amoeba last year, which was reported here.

Last year? That case is from 2007. This is 2010.

Statistics are always misleading depending on the point of view of the reporter.

I see nothing misleading in the article. The statistics used are quite clear and certainly support that claim that Naegleria fowleri. So what is it about the statistics you think is misleading?

Then they say the Loxahatchee river is brackish water, perhaps it has changed since I swam there in the 80,s.

No, they say that the part of the Loxahatchee river were swimming is allowed in Jonathan Dickinson State Park is brackish.

Quote

The other rivers mentioned come from the ground at 60-65 degrees, too cold for the tropical amoebas.

What makes you think that is too cold?

What we really need to fear are the illegal aliens and tourist from the tropics who bring these diseases with them.

Racism is not wanted here, Rodney. Please take it to your tea bagger meetings and leave it out of this forum.
