In this July 5, 2016 photo, aerial view shows trash on the shores of Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro. In light of AP’s findings on the city’s water quality, Dr. Valerie Harwood, Department Chair of Integrative Biology at the University of Southern Florida, had one piece of advice for travelers to Rio: “Don’t put your head under water.” Swimmers who don’t heed that advice risk ingesting water through their mouths and noses and therefore risk “getting violently ill,” she said.
