There is a microorganism, globally spread but especially in warm fresh water in the American Southeast, which swims up your nose and attacks your brain and spinal fluid. You present, at first, with cold symptoms. From that point you have about a week to correctly diagnose it (which requires a spinal tap) before you paralyze and die. Oh, and there’s no FDA-approved treatment. Mortality is approximately 95%. You’re not safe just by avoiding water, either. A case in Africa involved transmission by breathing contaminated dust.
