All inhabitants of the Norwegian capital, Oslo is advised to boil all water used for drinking, cooking - or even brushing teeth, for at least three minutes. in our water is a parasite known as the Giardia-parasite, which can lead to nausea, diarrhea and burps that taste like rotten eggs - this is actually a fact, strange as it might seem.

Our governmental water-service still has not determined whether there is 'actually' any danger of contamination, or whether there is enough of this parasite to make humans sick. When there was a similar break-out in 2004, Bergen, western Norway - over 6,000 people got ill, and 300 are still suffering from the symptoms (even 3 years later!)

The incubation time is anything from one day to a week, but depends on how much water you drink. They assume there's about one Giardia per ten litres of water.

This little lover bunny is causing more hysteria and hangs on more walls now than Spice-Girls.
