JackieRabbit: TheDirtyNacho: JackieRabbit: We just have to see at least one OMFG! news article about Naegleria fowleri every summer, even though only about 30 cases per year are reported in the US.

Far fewer than that. It's around 120 over the past 75 years

My source - Wikipedia - was wrong. According to the CDC, there have been 132 cases reported since 1962, with Florida and Texas reporting the most cases.


Brain-eating organism. One would think it would be asymptomatic in those states.

"Her life was taken by a rare amoeba organism that grows in many different fresh water settings. We want you to know this tragic event is very, very rare, and this is not something to become fearful about."

That is a hell of a statement by the family.  I feel for their loss and respect their strength and courage.
