Poop Prevalent in Public Pools, CDC Says

Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) found genetic material from E. coli bacteria in 58 percent of public pools they tested during the summer of 2012.

-----​

The study included 161 pools in the Atlanta area, and the researchers noted their findings may not apply to all pools, but said there is no reason to think that contamination or swimmer hygiene practices differ between pools in the study and those in the rest of the country.

I object!

They study pools in Atlanta and apply their findings to the whole country?!?!?

I avoid public pools like I avoid public transportation. Nothing good can come from either one.

Yeah, I last went to a public pool when I was 14. I avoid them like the plague.
