Tapeworms in Brain Cause Neurocysticercosis

Neurocysticercosis, brain tapeworms, is a parasitic disease of the body’s nervous system. A recent expose revealed how disgusting the brain tapeworms are and how they can enter the human body. They are larvae that can attach to the brain in large white cysts. Humans can get them by eating undercooked pork because they are usually found in the bloodstream of a pig, where they then attach to the pig’s muscles.

Even though the larvae are inside the human body, it still believes that it is inside the body of a pig, which causes them to move into the bloodstream and then get stuck in fluid-filled cavities in the human brain. Once this happens the larvae latches onto the immune system, forming networks on the brain, destroying its functions if not treated. Dr. Theodore Nash, from Maryland, says that patients he has treated suffer from awful side-effects. Those side-effects include the loss of motor function, comas, violent seizures and blindness.

What makes this disease even scarier is the fact that it is more common than most people think or even know. It is hard to pinpoint exactly how many people actually suffer from the problem, especially since they are common in areas of the world with poor sanitation and poor healthcare networks. Nash gives an estimate of 2,000 people in the United States being infected with the tapeworms and close to 29 million in Latin America.

    2,000 in the US? Mental illness, chronic fatigue, brain tumors, IBS, epilepsy…. I think the figure is a lot higher than that. Just look on the blogs, all the people doing parasitic cleanses and the tapeworms and other parasites. I have had tapeworms come out of me. I am cleansing a year now. We dump sewage sludge on farmland now. And water systems are greatly lacking sanitation.
