On the many Internet forums may be noticed discussions about losing weight. People recommend there solutions and here is point. One of solution is loosing weight by ingestion pill with tapeworm head, pills are of course illegal, come from black market and they are very expensive (even till 600$).
Tapeworm is parasite which lives in intestines, inside the digestive tract a larva can grow into a very large adult tapeworm. Tapeworm may have even few meters (till 15m). It is hermaphrodite, so insemination process is in progress inside every segment. In beginning tapeworms in the intestine usually cause no symptoms, but later when parasite is long, people experience upper abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, loss of appetite and connected with this loosing weight. Also anemia may develop, because tapeworm fares blood, minerals, vitamins. Infection is dangerous, but generally recognized when the infected person passes segments of proglottids in the stool, especially if a segment is moving and can be cured with pill. Infection ways: improperly cooked, fried, baked meat, dirty hands, no washed fruits and vegetables.
People with overweight can’t go easy way, ingestion this parasite will give loosing weight, but organism will become very weak, can develop many avitaminoses, anemia and after coming back to usual nutrition will be effect Jo-Jo. Also this idea is bad, because rest of family may infect!
Keeping fit is good, but not at all costs.
