Cryptosporidiosis

There is a confirmed case of crypto in Kansas City, Missouri, along with 109 cases in Kansas. The article provides a list of preventative measures, none of which are adequate if the parasite is in the municipal water system. Only a good filter can remove it. A Brita filter won't do it, but Pur filters will. On the up side, it may not be in the municipal water system. Transmission could be via swimming pools. People with healthy immune systems can fight off a crypto infection.
