Last night I was watching this health show on the Discovery channel about human facts most people are not aware of. Basically 1 out of 4 americans (if not more) have intestinal worms and parasites! I'm not talking microscopic sized... of course everybody has that and who cares about those tiny things... I'm talking pencil sized worms! The length and width of a pencil or the size of an earth worm.
I didn't believe it at first, it was too disgusting. They had doctors on the show talking about it e.t.c. Apparantly intestinal worms and parasites is a LOT more common than most people are aware of. Most people think that this only occurs in other third world countries and not in the USA... however that's not so. It's very common in the USA.
On the show it showed the worms inside the intestines. People who have intestinal worms do not even know they have it. I am really grossed out right now... I don't even want to know what's slithering around inside my stomach right now.
Immediately after watching that health show I went online searching for something I could take internally to KILL whatever might be living inside me!
Watching that show made me want to swallow a gallon of bleach. I found this website (amoung many others) selling some remmedies that supposedly gets rid of these parasites... look at the pictures on that website... all the stuff that came out of those people's colons... disgusting!
I am tempted to buy some of that and watch my stool for the next few weeks... was that too much information?
Anybody else find this perfusively disgusting?
If I had not watched that health show on the Discovery channel I would not have believed it if somebody told me. I mean I already knew this existed of course... but I also thought it was in other countries where poor people live in filthy conditions... you know what I mean...
