It sounds like science fiction but it's true: A killer amoeba living in lakes enters the body through the nose and attacks the brain where it feeds until you die.

First it was Creutzfeld-Jacob Syndrome, a nasty little prion discovered in cannibalistic tribes that turns the human brain into swiss cheese, then we have the Bovine spongiform encephalopathy better known as Mad Cow Disease, but this newest one is a real doozie.
Naegleria fowleri is a nasty little Amoeba that can enter your nasal passage while swimming and begin eating at you brain until you die. There were only 24 cases from 1995-2004, but scientists have had 6 cases this year alone? Is this some new kind of nasty created by our loving friends at the CDC(the ones who hold all of the worlds nastiest nasties) or perhaps the planet is finally fighting back.

Nah, it's not new at all.

We had someone die from it locally when I was a kid, which sadly was before 1995.

And prions have been around for a lot longer than Kuru, just not in people. Way longer than the US has been around.
