Another reason to go vegan. Less chance of getting parasites from sushi or from undercooked pork.

sure. I remember learning that people could see them swimming around inside their eyes

@Akfishlady no there are parasites that can live in the eye. I can't recall the name right now but we studied them in parasitology in medical school. THese are not the same parasites but there are worms that live in the eye

@Akfishlady yes something I have not wanted to consider since that class

Everyone should think about this article next time they're eating rice noodles.
