Will green algae in a pool make you sick?
Yes, in fact green algae can make you sick. I learned that from a friend of mine that decided he could go in the pool and yes, he did get sick. I went in my pool (full of green algae) every day last summer and did not get sick. However, I didn't go under water and get the water in my sinuses very often. I'm pretty sure it depends on how healthy you are overall.

Do rabbits eat capsicum?
"Capsicum" is the name for a genus of flowering plants that are widely cultivated for their pepper fruits. "Capsicum" is also sometimes used to specifically refer to bell peppers a.k.a. sweet peppers a.k.a. red/green/yellow peppers. I'll talk about both meanings of "capsicum" below: Rabbits don't eat spicy foods, so they don't eat spicy peppers. You shouldn't give spicy foods to your rabbit at all because they can make the rabbit sick. You also shouldn't give your rabbit any dried spices, herbs, or other dried flavourings, even if they aren't spicy: only fresh plants are good for rabbits. Bell peppers are not recommended for rabbits because they can cause gas. Gas can be very serious in rabbits, possibly leading to deathly illness (GI stasis). Some rabbits are more sensitive to gas than others, so some rabbits can have bell pepper as a treat, but other rabbits shouldn't have it at all. If you do give bell pepper to your rabbit, it should only be as a treat (an occasional bite or two), not a regular part of the diet. See the related question below for details and links about a healthy rabbit diet.

Asked in Snow and Ice
Can snow make you sick?
Snow in itself cannot make you sick. The cold temprature will not get you sick either. Heres why: 1- Snow, although full of microscopic bits of dibries from the air, water vapor and ground. has a very smnall chance of getting you "sick". 2- Cold tempratures have no involvement in making you sick. However, in cold times, people become more secluded and bacteria lives a bit longer when it is slowed down by the cold. some are killed in heat, some live in cold and adapt to the host. Becoming sick during the colder times is only because people are inside more and spend more time in one area, giving a greater chance of bacteria to form from outside areas in a nice warm household. Say you go out to the supermarket, you touch EVERYTHING you buy, the cart, the scanning belt, nearly everything. then you go home and put your food away, not many of us would think to wash our hands after such a regular affair, but public places have new germs we may have never come in contact with and we bring that into our homes to "incubate" in a toasty house.
