Cows are absolutely load with fluke worms, you have no idea, the anti-parasitcals used in farming is tremendous and they are getting into humans as well, the liver fluke especially from cows.
Americans in general know nothing of parasites, they think Americans don't really get parasites, how much more wrong could they be.
CDC Reports Prevalence Of Worms Transmitted By Dogs And Cats To Humans Is Higher Than Previously Understood
There are only a handful of parasitologists in America, and they know nothing of parasites frankly. Go tell you doctor you think you have worms, he'll ask you "Have you been out of the country?" and refuse to test if you say no. Why, because the belief is America is above parasites, this does not bode well for the health of this nation. If you are lucky enough to get a test, the test has less than 1 in 1000 of finding evidence of parasites and they only check for like 20 to 50 types, ie, is a miracle if you get a hit. Wake up America. Like the CDC report states
About 14 percent of the U.S. population is infected with Toxocara, or internal roundworms, contracted from dogs and cats.
This is especially true of children, and hookworms and other very dangerous parasites are getting into children, in fact, parasite infection is becoming the leading cause of blindness if children in America. America's love of pets is coming home to roost, every American yard full of cat and dog crap is loaded with parasites and odds are your children are infected.
I can understand you're wanting to live with Blinders on, even the Medical establishment is horrified by the prospect and wont even approach the subject. I know this first hand, I know doctors that walked out of offices when patients were seen to have worms coming from their skin and ask the people to leave.

“I can understand you’re wanting to live with Blinders on”
I ranch, and slaughter my own range-fed meat. As a family trained shochet (kosher butcher), I inspect the meat carefully for parasites, and don’t eat the crap cuts of meat where parasites reside.

We’re probably ALL better off as vegetarians. Sigh.
