Well hi there. I could probably lend some help, as I certainly don't have a phobia of holes if you catch my drift.

I'm sorry, it was sitting there and this is the internet. Someone had to do something.

Anyways, lame sexual innuendo-ish comments aside, that's pretty grotesque. I haven't read the link yet, but the most fun part of the whole thing is that supposedly the only way to get tapeworms in one's brain as opposed to one's intestines is to actually eat infected feces instead of undercooked meat, so either there's a wave of scat-fetishism sweeping latin america, or more likely there's a wave of living-in-latin-america sweeping latin america.

But I'm trying to eat hot pockets, so it's time to leave.

"Likely why so many religions forbid pork..."

Bingo! Because of that and trichinosis.

Why would you eat bacon raw?
Also I might start charging if that ever happens because I am the landlord here.

@Gerry: *gag* I didn't think of that mode of transmission. I propose a new sign for restaurant bathrooms, effective immediately:

"Employees must wash hands before returning to work so that customers aren't infected with brain-devouring tapeworm larvae."

"This can occur if someone shedding tapeworm eggs contaminates food that other people then eat."

Meaning the cook didn't wash his hands after he wiped his ass.

Eww

@Quik2TheStab: This isn't caused by eating undercooked meat. It's caused (as the article states) by ingesting tapeworm eggs found in human feces. That can occur if you're eating unwashed vegetables grown in soil that's been fertilized by raw sewage, as is sometimes done in Mexico and Third World countries.

I've studied for my MLT certificate, it's very rare for T. solium to enter the bloodstream. But if they do they can infect other places than the brain (like the eyes for example, sweet dreams).
