~Brain-eating tap water amoeba kills at least two in Louisiana~Deborah Dupre, Examiner
~It is Naegleri fowleri, a rare amoeba that lives in warm fresh water that attacks the brain, causing death. The brain-eating amoeba is blamed for three deaths in 2011.
Louisiana health officials have issued a warning Friday to residents about nonsterilized tap water after at least two people, one in De Soto Parish and the other in New Orleans, died after exposing their brains to a deadly, water-borne, brain-eating amoeba while flushing their nasal passages.
