Yeah, so there's really no polite way to put this, so I'll just come right out and say it. There's poop in public pools. Did you hear me? Every time you take the kids to a public pool -- odds are good they're swimming around with feces in the water.
Excuse me for a second -- I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
Last summer, researchers from the CDC found E. coli bacteria in 58 percent of the pools they tested. Yep, you guessed it, E. coli comes from the human gut -- and poop.
And the poop that's found in pools doesn't necessarily come from someone pooping in the pool.
