Despite the high chlorine levels in our city water, this parasite in our water systems has been floating alive streaming through our pipes making its way to our faucets into our body and feeding off our brain. How and when does that take place? When we wash our nostrils, this amoeba will make its way up an individual’s nose and settles in the brain feeding off it. Disgusting!!! Watch this video please and find out why each individual is responsible to take action:
What makes it worse is that this parasite has been present in some LA city waters for 2 years causing multiple deaths and sickness undetected until recently by the medical field. The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has announced that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirm the presence of the rare amoeba in five locations in DeSoto Parish.
According to the CDC, personal actions to reduce the risk of Naegleria fowleri infection should focus on limiting the amount of water going up a person’s nose and lowering the chances that Naegleria fowleri may be in the water. Preventative measures recommended by the CDC include the following:
- DO NOT allow water to go up your nose or sniff water into your nose when bathing, showering, washing your face, or swimming in small hard plastic/blow-up pools.
- DO NOT jump into or put your head under bathing water (bathtubs, small hard plastic/blow-up pools) – walk or lower yourself in.
- DO NOT allow children to play unsupervised with hoses or sprinklers, as they may accidentally squirt water up their nose. Avoid slip-n-slides or other activities where it is difficult to prevent water going up the nose.
- DO run bath and shower taps and hoses for 5 minutes before use to flush out the pipes. This is most important the first time you use the tap after the water utility raises the disinfectant level.
- DO keep small hard plastic/blow-up pools clean by emptying, scrubbing, and allowing them to dry after each use.
- DO use only boiled and cooled, distilled, or sterile water for making sinus rinse solutions for netipots or performing ritual ablutions.
We agree with the CDC recommended preventative measures. In fact it has always been our position that distillation technology is the best way to protect your family from potential water bacterial threat. Every biological sample that we have had tested by a third party laboratory has resulted in greater than 99.9% removal rate after going through one of our distillers. Our distillers continue to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
