Giardia and you
Hmmm, I just got totally confused and posted this on the blog for my disease class (it is disease related after all) and then was about to post the amusing German rock video here when I realized something was wrong. Anyway, here's the post I meant to put here. I found this report on Giardia risk in the Sierras to be a very sensible approach to what is probably a low risk. As the author points out, basic hygiene, such as hand washing, is probably far more important than water filtering. Now I bet you all want to see the amusing German rock video anyway but you'll just have to head over to the eemb40 disease blog for that.
