Ross Perot griped that NAFTA would result in a giant sucking sound. It sounds like the worms from Mexican pork are starting to suck back...

Worms in the brain may be a symptom of liberal mindedness. When you are so open-minded that your mind becomes a garbage can, it very well may gather worms, flies/maggots, and other pests.

I wonder if President Bush ate a lot of pork...

I don't really buy pork anymore for home, they treat pigs, who are fairly bright, quite poorly. I don't buy beef for similar reasons, plus the amount of resources it takes to raise them. I'm not vegan or anything, I buy chicken and fish. The big animals aren't really good for us, except maybe buffalo but that's another story. If you couldn't kill it with your own hands our bodies are probably not made to eat them.

my lecturer taught me about this few years ago. worm s are endoparasite that live in human or animals body. we can get worm by eating raw or uncook food such as vegetables, meat or fish.

be careful when you eat raw or half cook meat especially beef, pork, or even tuna in sushi.

save for mental hospital citizen i believe. poo is number one source of worms, like cow or goat's shit. these animals have worms because they feed from the grassland, where numbers of worms live. the worm such as taenia solium sp. or tape worm can survive in high acidic area in the stomach. only operation room is the cure.

It's as simple as cooking your food before you eat it. Eating raw meat has never been safe. In fact, eating raw vegetables from the grocery store can cause illness. That's the risks we take when we let other people handle our food.

A lot of this is happening now days,I saw an article where decayed teeth sometimes have worms under them when removed. Flesh eating parasites and it seems more types of bacteria or showing up.Now we know AIDS and so many others can spread by touching an open cut or sore and the gum's always bleed so kissing can and will transmit disease .I live near the water,a lot of people that go in the ocean are picking up different types of problems(killing some)including worms in the skin. WE SHOULD BE TOLD BY THE EXPERTS THE TRUTH ON THIS PROBLEM.IF THE EXPERTS REALLY KNOW.COULD BE MOTHER NATURE FIGHT BACK.
WE SHOULD TAKE THIS MORE SERIOUS.

just like in an old night gallery episode.

please people, wipe your butt, and wash your hands after wiping your butt...OR THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU!!!

and, if you have an impressionable little sister or brother, be sure to mess with their heads by telling them this true story.

I don't think the fish even care. It was probably a parasitical worm, but it was probably large enough to go fishing with.
