Also, for what its worth, here's a link to an article from Backpacking Light, Spring 2005, that I found on the Aqua Mira web site: http://aquamira.com/BPL_2_Efficacy-of-Water.pdf

All you ever want to know about cypto
Basically, filters and boiling work, chlorine doesn't, No mention of Aqua
Mira which uses free Oxygen but I suspect it should work - just not sure of
the required wait time.
Even if I knew the wait time for Aqua Mira I doubt it would make any
difference -- I am just barely waiting 20 minutes or else I can wait hours
it depends on my thirst when I hit a water source.
There is generally no effective treatment - it eventually goes away.
