Actually, if it is wanting to put in hog farms, the problem is the run-off. They have to find a way to process the pig excrement because it has something in it that pollutes the ground water and ruins the soil. If you an find the articles, there was a huge problem in northern Colorado, Weld County and surrounds, several years ago because of the run-off. "... nitrogen and phosphorous can find their way into groundwater thereby compromising water quality. Waste application is banned on weekends and holidays because of odor complaints." Not sure I'd want that in my neighborhood.
It was wild pigs, says the MSM. Do you reckon the investigators and media were more comfortable blaming pigs than farmworker hygenic deficiencies?
Mexico has a terrible infectious disease problem? Enough racist fearmongering - give me more pork carnitas. Wonder why I can't think and have a terrible headache. Couldn't be tapeworms in my head, could it? Nah. ;)
Actually, I remember an article describing this scenario on Freerepublic recently. A Mexican fellow loved carnitas and had headaches. The doctors found a large pork tapeworm in his head.
It was wild pigs, says the MSM.
Here's a combination of pigs and humans! From the article:
Carriers tend to be people from rural developing countries with poor hygiene, where pigs are allowed to roam freely and eat human feces. Mr. Tsang said the condition is rife in Mexico and other parts of Latin America and Central America and "in a large part of China and Africa."
You are correct. There is no other explanation for what is going on in this country. The government is rife with traitors that want to destroy freedom and democracy and imitate what's happening in Venezuela. Hillary might as well drop her mask and declare that she will nationalize the oil companies and everything else when she is elected.
That she should, because that's exactly what she's going to try to do.
I used to think that another rebellion in this country was not in our immediate future. But with all that's going on in the District of Criminals these days, I have to seriously wonder.
wha about feral pigs? are they prevented from crossing
"Parasitic infection plagues states along Mexico border"
Thought they were talking about illegals.
There was a show on (I think) Discovery Health a couple of weeks ago about a young orthodox jewish man who started having seizures, and no one could figure it out at first because neither he nor his family eats pork. Then they found the parasite in his brain. Turns out they had a Mexican maid, Thypoid Maria if you will, who had questionable hygiene habits. They tested her and found the parasite. It was a very nasty story, all told.
Be careful on the taco de carnitas.
If I eat carnitas I make them myself (although it takes forever to do it right and you have to have fresh pico de gallo too) with meat from my very reputable and painstakingly clean (German) butcher.
Sure does. It's called Illegalus Immigrationitis.
"Diversity" = Neurocysticercosis, among other ills.
I've neen known to eat them off the push cart. But only if I had been drinking.
No, actually we do. If you have TB you're not going to get an immigration visa. I know from personal experience.
Cysticercosis, or neurocysticercosis, is the most common parasitic infection of the central nervous system worldwide. It is caused by larvae of the tapeworm, Taenia solium, normally found in pork. The larvae, called cysticerci (singular cysticercus; also called bladder worms) form cysts in the body. If these worms are found in the intestine, they cause a different disease that is called teniasis, which is discussed in the Taenia solium and Taenia saginata articles.
Cysticercosis occurs when Taenia solium eggs enter the stomach. This can be from food or water contaminated with infected human fecal material. Also, people with adult tapeworms in their small intestine (teniasis) can autoinfect themselves with cysticercosis by vomiting, which pushes eggs into the stomach. When the eggs return to the intestines, the worms hatch and migrate into the skeletal muscles, heart, eyes and even the brain and spinal cord. Once there, they form small encapsulated cysts containing the worm.
How many visa applicants do they test for TB? If you didn't get a visa because you answered the questionaire truthfully, good for you. You are a principled, if lonely, minority. But as a practical matter they do not bar people with TB from coming here. And don't even get me started about the illegals with TB, I used to live in Texas.
Wanted to ping you to this - as we'd discussed this briefly recently.
