Naegleria fowleri is commonly referred to as the "brain-eating amoeba" as it can cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain called primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). The amoeba affects people when contaminated water enters the body through the nose and works its way into the brain.

A spokesman for the Texas Department of Health says the amoeba is present in freshwater all over the country.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention elucidated that this life-threatening amoeba is a single-cell living organism which is predominantly found in warm freshwaters like lakes and rivers. One can not contact an amoeba just by swallowing the water.
