Doctors To Neti-Pot Users: Do Not Put Tap Water Up Your Nose!

Filed under: Sad SadHealth

Neti Pot deaths

After two people in Louisiana died from brain-eating amoebas they contracted while using neti pots — a home remedy for colds — doctors aren't advising patients to shoot tap water through their nostrils to relieve their ailment.

A 20-year-old man and 51-year-old Louisiana woman both died of encephalitis over the course of this year, which was traced back to a microbe floating around in tap water used in a neti pot device.

Is Kris Humphries Getting Paid To Be Sick?

Kris Humphries Cold-EEZE

Wow. Product placement much? LOLz!

Kris Humphries was spotted leaving a Minneapolis pharmacy while carrying a little bit too clearly visible box of Cold-EEZE, a cold remedy clinically proven to shorten the duration of the common cold.

Hmm…we wonder if he was PAID to skip the bag and non-chalantly flash the logo of cold medicine to photographers?

Nah, the pharmacy was probably just out of Vicks. Hope that stuff helps you get rid of those "sniffles", Kris!
