NPR reports on 2nd Death reported in conjunction with use of popular home remedy “Neti-Pot” or similar devices. Apparently, used to squeeze fluids into the nose or sinus areas, they have recently been linked to 2 deaths from rare infections. Essentially, these nasal irrigation devices can be used to flush the sinus passages, but officials are warning to use caution and distilled or filtered water.
This caught my attention as anyone who has had an infant knows that a similar device is used to clear their noses. Please consider reposting.
