I was wondering how common giardia is to pick up by drinking from the mountain streams. I got sick once myself a number of years back as I thought there was no way the clear mmountain stream I was drinking from could be infected.
Is it still a big problem or not as much since most people like myself have now learned to avoid it?
Is this a national problem or more limited to the mountains where I myself picked it up? Pretty nasty stuff and I was sick for awhile before I figured it out and got treated.
