In the article “Some showerheads rain respiratory peril, CU study finds” by Colleen O’Connor tells about a germ that collects in your shower head, Mycobacterium avium that leads to pulmonary diseases but it is not supposed to make people concerned because it mostly just occurs on the first blast that is really cold anyway. I think that it is crazy to think that something we use to clean ourselves with has bacteria that have even such a slim chance of giving us disease us. It is odd to think that they only studied the shower heads because of studying the air and water in public buildings, schools, and homes.
