Do an FR search on Keyword Diseases for other 3rd-world afflictions that have crossed the borders into the US.

Open borders brings us more than just cheap lettuce.

Just one more reason why the border needs to be closed up, and entrance restricted. 100 years ago, we were turning people back at Ellis Island, if they had a chronic cough. I hope the infection makes it to congress and the senate. Maybe then, our MIS-representatives in Washington will pull their heads out of their deep, dark part of their anatomy!

I'm really curious about this. I live down here near the Mexican border, and there is a huge fight about hog farms going on down here. I can't help but wonder if this has more to do with the article than a real threat.

I have to go find the articles about the hog farm issue.

It wouldn't matter if it were an outbreak of flesh eating zombies crossing the border, neither the MSM nor the Bush Administration would play it the slightest heed.

Many restaurants hire illegal Mexicans as most are hard working employees. The trouble raised in this pork tape worm article is proper food handling and premises hygiene.

If the hired illegal is unfamiliar with proper food and sanitary techniques, his or her language inability to learn from a non-bilingual supervisor could easily spread this terrible disease.

Every political and social change has unintended consequences. Illegals let in for their cheap labor caused other costs and hazards to our society. We need to tighten immigration and lack of border security to give us time to decide if the risks outweigh the benefits.

Here in central California we find that more and more farmers are of the opinion that the food contamination is mostly due to the lack of sanitaion habits of their immigrant (or alien) workers. They just won't say it publicly. The talk of tearing out the hedgerows near vegetable fields is not geared against wild animals as the MSM reports, but at eliminating a place where workers that don't like using the fiberglass outhouses that bake in the sun can squat with and not be seen.

The word is gradually spreading out among the general population and the sales of spinach and other greens has not and will not recover.

Sure does. It's called Illegalus Immigrationitis.

"Diversity" = Neurocysticercosis, among other ills.

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.
