Giardia may not kill you, but if not treated will effect your ability to properly digest food, potentially for the rest of your life. Hence historic populations with Giardia generally catch other diseases more easily, and generally do not live very long

comment Is it still possible to make cast iron skillets as good as the old ones?
Just saying the old pans even after grinding etc where not that smooth (I have some unused antiques), and probably not much better than modern pans. The old pans that have been used for 50+ years are very smooth, and very nice to use

comment How long does yeast live after baking?
There are always exceptions, the way heat circulates, overly wet areas, , stronger yeast etc!. Pretty much 100% guarantee that some trace of yeast will survive. To get a 100% kill you will need a autoclave
