    • They are literally in every warm body of water in the summer. They are just almost impossible to contract. Fucking hate the media.

    • During late autumn early winter we also have a " red tide " a bl00d red t0xic algae floods the sea turning it a shade of crimson red and ki||ing fish, it's dangerous to people and gets us sick, I have a very distinct memory of the white sand stained deep red from these algae blooms

    • These Ameobas can't survive in the ocean, so a picture of the beach makes no sense. And they've been around in Florida since 1965

    • For real amoebas will thrive in the tide pools. There's an article explaining a man who went snorkeling in the tide pools in Florida and contracted an amoeba that went up his nose and made its way into the brain and he collapsed a week later as he mowed his lawn. They did a lot of diagnostic tests..

    • “Brain eating amoeba confirmed in Florida” *puts a picture of the ocean to make people afraid. Lets be clear the amoeba can only live in warm water (rivers, lakes, and often unsanitary swimming pools). This is a very common yearly problem in southern states. Nothing to panic about.
