    The Brain Eating Amoeba
    A war has been going on for billions of years that breeds well armed monsters who struggle with other monsters for survival. Having no particular interest in us, most of them are relatively harmless, as our immune systems deal with their weapons handily. But there are exceptions.
    Naegleria fowleri is an amoeba that not only has developed a deadly taste for human brains but is also a match for our defenses and a guest in dramatic headlines. What happens when this monster enters your body?

The wife wanted to invite friends to a park and hang out with kids and grill one summer. We ended up finding a decent lake with a park that was kinda in the middle of where we all lived. Upon getting there, i noticed a sign that said DO NOT GO IN THE WATER, as i researched on my phone as to why, i turned and looked at the wife and said "great choice, you picked the only lake in the state that has brain eating amoebas." At first she called me a dumb ass and didnt wanna hear my stuff, then she looked it up herself LMFAO, either way it was still a fun day and the kids had plenty to do besides go in the water.

For anyone still worried, they specified that the amoeba can only exist in *dirty* waters. Just don't jump into some random lake or a pool that isn't cleaned out regularly and you're fine. You're not likely to splash around in a spa since you're supposed to be relaxing, not going nuts, and when they say 'high in your nose' they MEAN high in your nose. As in, you can feel it in the bottom of your eyes kind of high. And that's a serious problem all on its own since that probably means you've inhaled some water into your lungs and you've got a DIFFERENT situation going on.

Thank you Kurzgesagt for helping me learn topics that would otherwise be "complicated" to understand. I came upon the channel two months ago and I think I've watched every video you have 😆. So the UBI video (fantastic btw ) ,got me thinking what would happen if it was like scaled up. Like not only we're you given a basic salary but also basic housing, clothing, medical care, recreational services, alternative education and every other basic amenity for free but here is the catch, you're not allowed to make any profit. If you're going to work you "work" for the fun of it not expecting anything in return.

This is now my favourite video on YouTube, followed by your ‘How to Terraform Venus’ and ‘What do alien civilisations look like?’. The animation is simply amazing, and the music is crazy good, it adds an intense feel to this epic content during the ‘attacking’ moments. I can tell this took extremely long, but all that hard work pays off.

I became pretty invested after watching that news video as well, plus I also had my own scare after swimming in some dirty water a few weeks ago. The CDC didn't find the amoeba in 2 samples of his cerebral spinal fluid though, so the diagnosis is inconclusive, although he def has something horrible that is damaging his brain. More importantly though, a Missouri man who went to Iowa did get the amoeba at the same time as Caleb, and has died already. scary stuff.

There is a treatment for it. The issue is not lack of treatment. It's the timing. Many people are misdiagnosed with meningitis and treated for that while their symptoms continue to worsen. By the time they are taken to the hospital yet again, they are already on their deathbed. It's like rabies, except in this case, the onset of symptoms does not mean it's too late.

A family friend's son caught this amoeba in Port Charlotte earlier this month. He went swimming at the beach here (it's attached to two rivers) and started hallucinating and spiking a fever a week later. He went into the hospital in early July and is still alive as of today, and is even still breathing on his own. He has pretty severe brain swelling right now, though. I hope he pulls through...I didn't know the chances were so slim.

Kurzgesasgt's best videos are consistently the ones about biology. If these videos aren't used in educational curriculum for the next generations of children in U.S. schools, I will be beyond confused. If it can interest an ADHD-ridden autism-diagnosed 26 year old manchild like me, I guarantee children will become absolutely enamored with stuff like this. Visual, audial, and textual learning. It's all three modal operations of learning beautifully and thoughtfully put together. I love this channel. I show my 6th grade cousin them all the time when she needs help with a subject in school, sciences especially. Kurz is genuinely a blessing for education.

I know after several re-watches of this video over the past month, I've went to check Naegleria Fowleri's wikipedia page, and a paragraph or two mentioned a different species of amoeba (I forgot the name) that also likes to eat brains. Though, unlike Naegleria, that one prefers salty water environments, and also seems to only be deadly to people who already have some immunocompromising diseases, like HIV or leukemia.

When I went to Ojo Calienté (translation is hot eye) mineral springs in northern New Mexico (just look for Taos) there is a lithium warm spring you are invited to drink from to improve your mood. As I was sipping, another tourist was saying it's all fine and dandy until you contract an amoeba. I told them that you don't get that from just drinking water, but that's why I grew up going to natural springs in the mountains of NM and told not to submerge my head, where the water would flood my sinuses.

This ameoba appeared twice in animal planet’s “monsters inside me”. One was a kid barely 10 years old, the other was a father. Those two episodes were hard to watch towards the end, and that kid dying hit hard coz that was the first time i watched “monsters inside me” where the victim actly died.

My sister died to this, the last thing I saw of here was just being a slack-jawed body on the gurner that didn’t even look alive after taking a small dive into a local hot spring. I was young at the time and Inside Out came at the same time this happened. I remember that because I couldn’t be there at the hospital anymore and a friend of the family took me to that instead. I have never cried so hard in my life, especially during the imaginary friend forgetting scene. Despite how rare it is, it’s still awful to experience.

@uNnHkP8mza who cares about that the content was amazing, i'm still tripping about what i just saw, the war between microbes is just.. how they kill each other by different methods, i mean, what's the limit there? these creatures seem at least as conscious as insects, the solutions applied from our bodies seem like some you would arrive by conscious thinking about how to solve that issue if you could control different parameters as your body temperature at will, which you can with some effort as proved by wim hoff, my guess is if we would watch these microworlds millions and millions of times more than what we do we'd probably see some spectacular events happen that'd prove beyond doubt the improvisational nature of all biology, probably some would be in that 3% of the infections in which the parasite is defeated once in the brain, if i understood correctly, and what we would see perhaps be the first time a 'new move' is being 'invented' by some single immune cell or bacteria

Does the brain have a weight difference when expanding, enough to see it in a scale as a constant when checking one's weight, if so can that number be enough with efficient data to have the start to brain surgery for the expansion of the brain to subside? Could something like this save these patients. Or maybe a cat scan type measurement device for noticing inflammation in different parts of the body. Using common math
