Each summer, millions of Americans seek relief from the heat at the public pool ... despite the fact that the Centers for Disease Control release a report each year warning about all the bacteria that also goes for a swim in these pools.
A brand-new report from the CDC found that more than half the water samples they took from public pools contain E. Coli bacteria from fecal matter. It turns out that swimmers see water and assume it's just a big toilet.
The CDC says there are two ways the fecal matter makes it into the pool. First, it comes from swimmers who have, what the CDC calls, a "fecal incident." Second, it comes from people who don't shower before entering the pool, something that 70 percent of people say they don't do. So have fun this summer, but maybe keep your head out of the water.

College is winding down, which means it’s time for many young adults to join the rest of us here in the real world.
Here are some habits that need to be dropped immediately after college:
Phone Topics: What was your biggest shock after graduating?
An ice cream parlor in London started selling breast milk ice cream – and, believe it or not, they can't keep the stuff in stock. The particular flavor, called Baby Gaga, comes from 15 different, um, suppliers, and is infused with vanilla and lemon zest. It sells for around $22 a scoop. (Mom.me)
When it comes to cheating, we all have different interpretations of what that means. For example, apparently as you get older, the less you see kissing someone other than your partner cheating.
A HuffPost/YouGov poll found that 74% of those 18-29 consider it cheating if their partner kissed someone else on the lips.
Only 53% of those ages 30-44, 38% of 45-64 year-olds, and 30% of those 65 and older felt that way.
Just Asking … Do you consider kissing cheating? Has that changed as you’ve gotten older? Does it matter what kind of kiss it is?
