Backpackers Disease / Giardiasis

Giardia LambliaIn my recent article on Swedish hikers being warned not to drink the untreated water found in the area of Åre. I mentioned the reason for the warning was that the parasites; Giadia and Cryptosporidium have been found in some of the streams.

M

And instead of just forgetting about all the work and leaving it laying around on my PC, I thought I would share it anyway. As I’m not submitting it as a news story for our Environmental News Online site, I will just drop it here.
