SNIP IT: The legionella bacteria also causes a milder illness called Pontiac fever.
Playboy Mansion illness traced to hot tub bacteria


– Fri Apr 15, 10:27 pm ET
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County health officials say the bacteria that causes Legionnaires' disease was found in a hot tub at the Playboy Mansion where scores of people became ill after attending a fundraiser in February.

The Los Angeles Times says health officials presented their findings Friday at an annual conference at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.

The legionella bacteria also causes a milder illness called Pontiac fever. Symptoms include fever and headache.

Many people who attended a fundraiser party at the Playboy Mansion came down with a respiratory illness after the DomainFest conference in February.

Officials contacted 439 people and found that 123 had fevers and at least one other symptom with 69 falling ill on the same day. Epidemiologists used social media to contact the conference attendees.

Ya got the fever when ya buy one---and the headache never stops. The fact that ya do it multiple times (17 in my case) PROVES its a disease.

.I would like more women to join Central Florida Fiero, the worlds leading Fiero club,, We have dropped the subservience rule & now we show proper respect ,just do not date any of us,do not lend any money ,& never go to las Vegas with a CFF member,,NEVER, fortunately our cops are real busy so there will be no extradition..
Only a lady of questionable virtue would get in a hot tub with lecherous CFF member ,you would have bigger worries than some social desease,, the 2 paternity suits have been moved to a later date in 2012,, thank heaven for loaded court dockets
