Parasites in the human body cause major health problems and are behind many diseases. National Geographic channel claims that parasites have killed more lives than all the wars in history.
People in Asia including Thailand are well aware about parasites and it is known fact that a person should undergo a deworming treatment every three months. This treatment should be performed at the time of the full moon, because at this time, parasites do reproductive activity and cluster together.
One of the most usual parasites are tapeworms (Taenia Saginata, Taenia Solium, Diphyllobothrium Latum, Hymenolepis Nana) which get into the human body in the form of eggs in infected meat. Tapeworm larvae in meat gets into the digestive system of humans. Tapeworm is very dangerous especially because its larvae can penetrate the brain or other vital organs. Tapeworms can grow to a length of 2-12 meters, causing a variety of health problems such as cramps, problems with the pancreas, bladder, lungs or liver. Mebendazole treatment against tapeworm is ineffective and Niclosamide based drug must be used instead.
