Most of those diseases are caused by untreated sewer overflows from large cities that refuse to spend the billions in tax money they collect for it's intended purpose, (infrastructure maintenance).

I'm in the water constantly. Usually every week. Just dove the boat yesterday. It drives my wife crazy because she's obsessed with the idea that I'm going to get the plague or whatever. I tell her I'd rather take my chances in the harbor than an international airport.

I remember when I checked the statistics for people getting hepatitis (I think). Something like 60 cases a year are waterborne with something like 90% of those being contaminated drinking water in restaurant.

Here's me jumping into America's Finest City bay water. The only I do is hose off afterwards and use some rubbing alcohol in a qtip in the ears to keep ear infections at bay (no pun intended).

rebell heart is in north sin diego bay where the water actually circulates every day in tidal exchanges. down here by coronado, it takes a while to get in here--we have the industrial stiuff from navy --3 bases here, and nassco shipbuilders across the bay and convair cove north of us with pcbs in the anchoring mud--is the transient anchorage for cruisers ... lol A-9 anchorage--was capped in 1998, but has been found to be leaching thru the cap.
san diego bay has many faces and there are many who do not see the real face, as they are sheltered, as it were--pun might have been intended for rebel heart...isnt bad to swim in that part of sin diego bay--but the rest isnt worthy..fishing in the main channel is ok--water exchanges every day. nice and cold and fresh as it can get. where it warms up isnt fresh--is more used. yuk...and coronado has documented bad sewage system ....pours it out.....niiiice...
some folks using tidelands park, where we have to keep our dinghies, have been tested positive for various heavy metals inclusive of lead, nickel, zinc, others i am not certain--those are just the ones i have heard them talking about when they come back with their test results.
i wear boots to my knees in this foul stuff. i do not enjoy watching others develop mrsa from this bay water,,,,south of north bay is a different world, rebel heart--dont think it isnt.. the place you are is very sheltered from the disease and goo and crud of this foul bay. and down here is known as amerikas fascist city.
