Time to BAN anyone from having WATER touch their noses now. No more swimming or showers BAN that as well.

I am thankful that I don't live in Louisiana if they are issuing warnings before the investigation is even closed.
And most likely the brain eating amoebas( I am sorry, but that is fun to say) need those warm waters, I don't consider the brain eating amoeba a national threat.
I bet big Pharma is behind this. People don't buy decongestants if the neti pot works!

Yes, boiling the water should kill any bacteria in your tap water...

Distilled water tastes like.... water.
The reported story is not reported in local Louisiana as of yet.
The water in LA is pretty nasty. The tap water is better that 90% of rest of the planet but nothing like Colorado water.

I could be wrong but I think distilled water is suppose to taste like ass due to having no minerals and stuff in it. Pure h2o sounds nice but I don't think its "tasty"

It has been in our news tho, it was in our news back in August, I remember my grandmother telling me not to lean my head back in the shower and not to use tap water in my neti pot, it has been in our news down here, not recently ...... then again I haven't watched the news recently, but it WAS in our news.
Health officials later found the amoeba in the home's water system. The problem was confined to the house; it wasn't found in city water samples, said Dr. Raoult Ratard, Louisiana's state epidemiologist.
