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. They are most commonly found in North Americas streams and have only on occasions been found in Europe, so I thought I would elaborate a little on the How’s and Why’s of these parasites.
