[Ed. – Is nothing sacred?]
Here is something to think about before jumping into the pool on your next vacation. Hotel pools and hot tubs are breeding grounds for waterborne diseases.
A study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention find a third of all recreational waterborne disease outbreaks occurred in hotel pools or hot tubs and water play venues.
Between 2000 and 2014 the CDC recorded nearly 500 disease outbreaks related to recreational water use that resulted in more than 27,000 illnesses and eight deaths. Hotels were the leading setting, associated with 157 of the outbreaks.
