Man got huge tapeworm from eating sushi

Man got huge tapeworm from eating sushi

A California man is likely adjusting his consistent sushi propensity in the wake of finding a tapeworm that may have entered his body through the crude salmon he adores to such an extent.

"He asked me for worm treatment and I was like, 'Oh, not an everyday request, '" Bahn said on the podcast, skeptical about the patient's self-diagnosis. Attempting to understand where he contracted the worm, the doctors asked him if he had been out of the country.

"I eat raw salmon nearly every day".

But then, the patient opened a bag and showed Banh a tapeworm wrapped around a toilet-paper roll.

A Fresno man and avid lover of sushi - more specifically, salmon sashimi - pulled a 5 1/2 foot-long tapeworm out his own body.

Freaked out to find a giant worm, but relieved that his entrails are intact, the quick-thinking man used the nearby TP roll as a spool to wind up the worm as he pulled it out.

Kenny Banh happened to be the doctor at the hospital who checked on this particular patient, who complained of abdominal cramps, bloody diarrhea and other symptoms.

But the bill's passage through the House of Lords in the coming weeks could be far harder because the upper chamber is dominated by the pro-EU opposition.

"It's like with patients who come in after motorcycle accidents", he said.

And not just any flat tapeworm: It measured five and half feet long, Banh said on the podcast. The tapeworm was living inside his body for some time. Another Dr. Jessica Mason tells that the tapeworm can be 40 feet long.

Since 2017, the CDC has warned that wild-caught Pacific salmon in both North America and Asia could carry tapeworm larvae.

When questioned, he insisted he had not been overseas - and revealed that he ate raw salmon every day, reported MailOnline.

Tapeworms can be found in many types of fish that has not been properly flash frozen (the freezing kills the tapeworms).

Doctors have been warning people that people could be affected with the parasite through the consumption of raw pork, fish and fish eggs. But, in some cases, the tapeworm will cause its host to have a vitamin B12 deficiency (the tapeworm absorbs enormous amounts) or gallbladder or intestinal issues. A single dose of de-worming medication - the exact same pill given to dogs - is all it takes to kill all the worms.

Fresno is located 150 miles from the coastline and is not known as a sushi hotspot, which are red flags for eating the raw Japanese food.
