Rio Olympics Filthy Water

In this July 11, 2016 photo, doctoral candidate Rodrigo Staggemeier collects sand from Copacabana Beach for a study commissioned by The Associated Press in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Samples from Copacabana and Ipanema revealed high levels of viruses, which recent studies have suggested can pose a health risk, particularly to babies and small children. "Both of them have pretty high levels of infectious adenovirus, and adenoviruses are going to make children, who are most likely to be playing in the sand, potentially quite sick with gastroenteritis, diarrhea," said Dr. Valerie Harwood, Chair of the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of South Florida.
