Beyonce Knowles

American singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter, 35, was spotted leaping off the third deck of a yacht into the ocean off the coast of Italy.

This image of Beyonce carelessly leaping into warm water without holding her nose demonstrates how easily a deadly brain-eating parasite can enter the body.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cases of Naegleria fowleri (brain-eating amoeba) are on the rise.

Just today, the AJC reported that a 4th case of amoeba infection has been identified by the Florida Department of Health.

Earlier this month, little Hannah Collins, of South Carolina, lost her battle with Naegleria fowleri after contracting the infection while swimming. Her father said she leaped into the water from a tree swing.

Nearly everyone who contracts the brain infection dies.

Naegleria fowleri is found in warm freshwater, such as lakes, rivers, and hot springs.

Even though Naegleria fowleri is not found in salt water, such as the ocean, it is still a wise idea to hold your nose when leaping into water, because other bacteria may dwell in the ocean.

Naegleria fowleri enters the body through the nose and travels through the blood-brain barrier to infect the brain.

The blood-brain barrier is a network of tiny blood vessels designed to act like a filter to prevent bacteria from invading the brain.

Most bacteria and virus are too large to cross the blood-brain barrier into the brain.

But Naegleria fowleri enters the brain by eating its way in through the nose.

“They naturally feed on bacteria,” said Dr. Jennifer Cope, a researcher at the CDC, “but when the single-celled microbes find themselves in the brain where there’s no bacteria to feast on, they turn to consuming brain tissue even though it’s not their preferred food.”

Common symptoms of Naegleria fowleri include nausea, vomiting, fever, blinding headaches, stiff neck, sensitivity to light, confusion.

The CDC recommends holding your nose when jumping into warm water to prevent the bacteria from being forced up into your nose.

Beyonce The CDC also recommends keeping your head above water when swimming, and avoid water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature.

Although infection via use of Neti pots are rare, the CDC recommends using tap water that has been boiled for at least 1 minute and left to cool.

Antifungal medications have been used in the past without much success.

“One of the toughest things is getting the drug through the brain barrier and into the brain,” Dr. Cope said.

This has been your Medical Minute.

    Not happening.

  • puppylove

    Sandra you so shady and i love you for it.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I blame the American public school system for not educating you children better. When I was a kid, we were instructed to always hold our noses when jumping into water.

  • Sucker Free

    Beyonce is so badazz. That’s some sh!t I would do. Live life to the fullest. Jump off the top of yo yacht gotdammit ???

    Auntie u just jealous. Take some swimming lessons boo

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No shade, hun. I’m just doing my part to help educate American children about the dangers of leaping into water.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    We know Beyonce isn’t very smart. But why didn’t the other adults advise her not to leap 30 feet into water without holding her nose? There’s no telling what’s swimming around inside her brain.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I can swim dear. Did you read the post? This post is about holding your nose when jumping into water.

  • Mystery User

    Water up your nose is an unpleasant experience…. Why wouldn’t someone hold their nose?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly. And who wants dirty water shooting up their noses into their brain?

  • side_i

    *pressing temples, contracting heart*

    Still nothing

  • Sucker Free

    I am self taught dear…plus took swim lessons in college for PE wasn’t taught to hold my nose

    Plus she’s in the ocean not freshwater where this parasite can be found

    But imma let you finish dear ?

  • Mystery User

    Her mom does it also…

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This just proves my point that your American educational system is lacking. Again, this post is about JUMPING into water, not swimming.

  • Buttercup

    use of Neti pots
    =========
    Are amazing!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Well, there you go…

  • Buttercup

    I don’t hold my nose either. I just exhale out of my nose. It’s so much easier.

  • LibraGirlonly

  • Karma WhO

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

  • Karma WhO

    :DEAD:!!

  • Buttercup

    LOL. Lil Butter thought it was the grossest thing when I made him use it. He thanked me afterwards though. I had to buy him his own. I don’t need him getting a brain eating bacterium from me.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    My daughter asks for it now.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Where is the video of the jump? I want to see if she is really that Bad ass.

  • LeBrick James

    That’s why I keep my butt in the living room with a Coke in one hand, and a remote control in the other. Zero risk of brain-eating bacteria, thank you.

    Y’all can have all that “outdoor activities” stuff.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Yep. He wrote a book, too.

  • Buttercup

    I remember he talked about it on the show he did a few years back. I thought Eddie Longstroke put a gag order on him. I reckon it’s an aggressive strain, huh?

    I’m glad nothing ever happened when I lived in Maui. We would go fresh water swimming all damn day long jumping from the cliffs and all that up the rainforest. People were more afraid of the jellyfish and sharks in the salt water down below more than the waterfalls above.

  • hi-liter

    I’m telling you. That looks like a long jump.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    SO the fact she is jumping into a saltwater ocean vs a freshwater lake maybe the pic shouldnt have been used. IJS.

    It’s pointless there. Black chicks just wear their hair with fake braids or their natural hair in french braids. I just wore my hair out. I was having too much fun to play with either. Not many actually live there anyway to really notice. Most were tourists. I moved there running away from some stuff down south. lol. It was a good 2 year break. My hair grew like weeds out there so, the heaviness helped it fall down instead of out. It was ponytails and buns when I wasn’t in the water. Nobody cares about hair there. It’s all about partying.

    I did, however you spoke on a specific bacteria that does not dwell in oceans, so with that being the fact ,and you using a picture of someone jumping in the ocean. What would be the types of dangerous bacteria in the ocean ? The pic should go with the specific topic, and since it doesn’t , you should make the readers aware of those dangerous bacteria in the body of water shown, or used another photo.

    It’s called a photo illustration. The point of this photo was to illustrate how jumping from high places is the easiest way for Naegleria fowleri to go up into the nose. The force of the impact with the water forces the water up into the nose.

    It took forever to come up with that Sandra. One doesn’t need to jump from a high distance for water to get in their nose. Simply swimming or playing around in water , submerging your head can cause water to get in ones nose. I understand you want to be right, but the article was too specific about a certain bacteria, and you know as I do, the pic posted did not fit the topic of the post.
