The Doctors discuss a medical case that might make you think about passing on sushi for a while!
A man who says he loved to eat sushi daily had a horrifying incident while using the restroom. He reportedly thought his intestines were coming out of his backside but says he discovered what was coming out of him began to move. According to the “This Won't Hurt A Bit” podcast, a tapeworm that measures 5.5 feet was pulled out of him and he then went to the emergency room, where he was diagnosed with the parasite.
The man says he believes that he got the tapeworm from eating salmon sashimi, but The Doctors note it would be difficult to determine if it was truly the salmon sashimi that gave him the worm.
The Doctors say this case is a great example that if you have a dramatic change in your health -- the man began seeing blood in his stool -- to have it check out by your doctor.
They also note that tapeworms, which are rare and can easily be treated by taking usually 1 pill, can live for up to 30 years in an adult host and grow as long as 80 feet! They also suggest when eating raw foods to only go to a trusted restaurant or source.
