Brain-Eating Amoeba from Tap Water Could Claim Your Life: Know Everything Here! Posted on March 18, 2023 News By Akta Yadav 92 Views Brain-Eating Amoeba:- The perils of drinking tap water are many but hardly have we come across a peril so dangerous that could claim the life of a person. A shocking incident of such a magnitude has surfaced from Florida. Florida Shocker: Man Died after Infection by Brain-Eating Amoeba Charlotte County, a resident of Florida, succumbed to death after a very rare species of brain-eating amoeba infested his brain. The incident has not only taken the United States by a shock but has also made people from all over the world reconsider their choice of drinking tap water. Although it is not clear as to how County was infected, it is legitimately suspected that drinking tap water caused the infection. Naegleria Fowleri: The Brain-Eating Amoeba The Brain-eating amoeba, Naegleria Fowleri, had been discovered by scientists in 1965 and was mostly found in untreated contaminated water that naturally flowed in lakes and water inlets in villages and towns. Scientists have also found that the brain-eating amoeba can travel up to the human brain by entering through the nose. Therefore, using tap water to wash our faces can also pose a threat to the brain unless it is ensured that the water supply chain is hygienic and disinfected. Moreover, the brain-eating amoeba can also stay for days in one’s body in the form of an inactive cyst and this is the probable cause of the difficulty in tracking down the time during which one was infected. Habitual Changes That Can Help Drinking tap water is a BIG NO! One can bring in habitual changes like boiling tap water before consuming it. One can also take time to make an informed decision about the choice of the water supplier. Bathing in highly contaminated ponds and rivers must also be avoided at all costs.
