"My high school biology teacher was just featured on Discovery Health’s, Mystery Diagnosis, for having some type of worms."

I had a high school history teacher on Jeopardy a few years ago.

As far as I know she was worm free.

More than 2 percent of adult Latinos may be infected, and with 35 million Hispanics in the United States, this could add up to tens of thousands of cases, Hotez said.

Diversity is strength.

I have sometimes wondered if the are any type of worms or other parasites that can be in your body without making you aware of their presence.

We could just deport the worms when we discover them

.At least bring them out of the shadows.

You even hear of a list of the diseases of the rich?

No but it sounds like a great specialty to go into.

.....(Strongyloides) was then usually associated with rural elderly farmer-people, and not necessarily the “poor.”

Nasty little critters they are, I don't think you can ever really rid your body of them.

The childhood ditties were unspeakable and ghastly, and I went to Catholic school. They involved stalking, butchery, decay, murder, bodily functions of the earthier sort, and yet we thought them simply word games. Thank God that manners and diplomacy bloom in adulthood -for some.

At post 33, when I said my former teacher was on Discovery Health’s, Mystery Diagnosis for worms; he made that show because he had that disorder/disease for years and the medical professional couldn’t diagnosis.

So, I guess that would be a yes to your question.

East Texas,LA,MS,AL,&GA used to be referred to as the “tape worm” belt. My father was regularly “wormed” every Spring.

I've gotten these kind of worms before. They made me really sick too, and gave me amnesia.

Question: Is one supposed to drink the worm at the bottom of the tequila bottle?

Doing the job American worms won't do.
