For those of you who use the Neti pot, as I do, please hear this warning. I had read earlier this year about a young man dying after using the Neti pot. There is a dangerous bacteria that can be in our pipes, that is not harmful to swallow, but deadly if it gets lodged in our nasal passages. Only 1 person has ever survived after having this. Since reading that this summer, I only use distilled water in my pot now. It was in the news today about another woman who has died after getting this from using her tap water in the neti pot. You can read the article here on CNN.
