Cedros, you don't have to be a degree graduate in a topic to be an expert. Just look at some of the people here who never graduated clown school, yet are still great at the job.

I was kicked out.

No mystery. He and many other scientists and scientific organizations have done a lot of research over the years. Many people swim in it and not just Mexicans. i believe a couple of pictures are worth more than your constant negative words every time a lake topic comes up. Have a nice time swimming in your Raquette Club pool,cedros, but why don't you have it checked sometime for the urine to water ratio.

Urine is actually sterile, can't make you sick, unlike Ecoli.

It's only sterile briefly when it is first expelled. At that time it's good for washing out a wound  instantly, directly from the source.

True and you often don't need a degree to know when someone is making things up.

Read everything here and I'm still ready to go for a swim!  Anyone else up for it, please contact me.  Maybe take a boat to the middle of the lake?  Many kids swim next to the pier in Ajijic.  I'm 70 and am not too worried about developing kidney disease at this point.  I've swum open water for years in La Jolla Cove, California, which has got to be pretty polluted despite being a marine park.  Oh, and the reason people want to swim in the lake is for the adventure of open water swimming.  The views of the land are amazing and you don't have to do turns.

You are exceedingly  intelligent to disregard all the naysayers.

its safe people were swimming in Ajijic  next the malecon in front old posada.

Also fisherman are near the shore waste deep casting their nets,

water is cleaner then the east cost of the united states.

 

Tod stong drinks the water every year  in front of a crowd of 200 people with a little chlorine in it.

 

 

 

Sure, but i can drink the water from the Ganges with chlorine and it doesn’t kill me. But chlorine doesn’t take care of heavy metals.

Relax, Adam. The topic is swimming in Lake Chapala. No one is advising you to drink lake water.

You are wrong. Stong has done a lot of work on the lake but I have never seen or heard of any proper research he has done on the lake. Urine to water ratio is not very relevant in a pool. I went to one of Stong's lectures once and thought that he would get booed off the stage if he tried to give the same speech at a place of higher learning.

Here's a picture of kayak club first kids kayaking day on 2011, started with 14 to 18 years taking lessons for about  for about 20 minutes, they learned quick, then the 10 to 13 years old,

went, well, then we did the 6 to 9 years, there attention span was about 6 minutes, then they wanted to see how many kids could fit in  a kayak, this their fun day playing at the beach.
