Swimming can be a fun way to work in exercise and beat the heat until you introduce Crypto (short for Cryptosporidium), Giardia, Shigella, norovirus and E. coli O157:H7. Recreational water illnesses (RWIs) can take the fun right out of a summer vacation. Find out how you can protect yourself and your family.
