Brain-eating Amoeba Rattles Nerves in Louisiana

Brain-eating amoeba
Experts say only danger is to people who get the microscopic organism way up their noses.

A deadly, brain-eating amoeba has been found in the water supply of a Louisiana community near New Orleans, scaring residents and sending officials on the hunt for its source.

Experts say the only danger is to people who manage to get the microscopic organism way up their noses. Its only entry to the brain is through tiny openings in a bone about level with the top of the eyeball, said Dr. Raoult Ratard, Louisiana's state epidemiologist.

Good luck finding the source for this Amoeba. Better still, good luck figuring out how it got from Washington to Louisiana.
