In a lot of places, like Mexico, El Salvador, Bolivia, Paraguay, there are street vendors selling stuff like tacos, empanadas, even ceviche and fresh fruit juice.

When I realized that there are few public restrooms, let alone a place to wash up, my appetite for street food went way down.

Something like this could have happened to Mr Ramirez.

Come to think of it, in the lunch wagons that visit construction sites and office parks in the US, where do those employees wash up? Granted most of what they sell is prepackaged and they wear gloves (with no proper glove protocol), but without a sink and hot water they don't wash up any more than the taco stands in Ensenada.

Exact same thing happened to the uncle of a coworker of mine. He bought some sort of pork burrito or something from one of those Mexican carts on the street. I have sworn off pork and am real leery about eating at any restaurant, especially fast food places, since so many hire illegals. Just one more way I, and many other Americans, have had to adjust and adapt because of the illegal invasion.

I think all food service places whether mobile or not should have a sanitary hand washing sink well in view of the customers. If you see someone going towards your food without washing their hands. Go out the door. You never know if someone washes their hands after using the restroom so I for one want to see them lather up.

"... doing all kinds of work with our food chain."

I've been to fast food joints in Texas. I'll take those employees over the native fast-food employees in Mississippi ANYDAY.

The disease is usually found in rural parts of developing countries with poor hygiene habits.

I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more of this from now on, and not only in "developing countries"...

TB from Bangladesh, brain worms from Mexico, Chacas disease from central America, HIV from Haiti...

You forgot the whooping cough epidemic from a couple of years ago. I don't know where that one came from.

Build the wall now!!

Whoa! Parasitic "worms", whether they be pinworms or tapeworms attach to the INTESTINES and only the INTESTINES!

They are intestinal parasites insiteu, in other words, they don't go to your brain. They will cause you discomfort and weight loss but, in the modern medical environment, they won't kill you and they won't, repeat, won't go to your brain. However, they will come out of your butt. That's when you go to the doctor and get something to kill them. Liberal science urinalists (spelled wrong for effect) only think that because they most always think with the place that the worms come out of, hence the confusion with the brain.

I'm a doctor, and I don't play on on TV.

The tapeworm eggs are spread by a human host who doesn't practice good hygiene after using the restroom. An unsuspecting victim then eats the contaminated food, Ostrosky said.

Well, Yuch!!!!


And yet you'd be surprised at the number of guys - well-educated professionals - at my workplace who come out of the stall and head right out without washing their hands. Once I saw one of the cafeteria workers do it. After seeing stuff like this, I only exit men's rooms by covering my hand with a paper towel to open the door.
