What happened?
Health officials in Florida have sounded the alarm over the discovery of a rare, brain-eating amoeba in the county that encompasses Tampa and several other cities.
 
And the latest?
The Florida Department of Health announced the news Friday that a person in Hillsborough County had suffered a confirmed infection of naegleria fowleri, a single-celled living amoeba that can lead to a dangerous infection of the brain called primary amebic meningoencephalitis.
 
Tell me more.
Such an infection “destroys the brain tissue and is usually fatal,” health officials warned. The amoeba is usually found in lakes, rivers, and ponds, particularly when the water is warm.
 

Anything else?
There have only been 37 confirmed cases of the amoeba since 1962, and health officials say the best way to prevent an infection is by “avoiding nasal contact with the waters, since the amoeba enters through the nasal passages.”
 
Final word.
Of the 143 documented cases of brain infection caused by naegleria fowleri in the U.S., only four people have survived.




Scariest Movies of All Time


The Exorcist (1973)


One of the scariest movies because: Terrible, terrible things come out of a little girl’s mouth (which happens to be attached to a spinning head, thanks to demonic possession). Audiences were so affected by this fearsome film that some theaters even provided “Exorcist barf bags.”

What the critics say: “The climactic sequences assault the senses and the intellect with pure cinematic terror. “—Variety.
