Tapeworms In Raw Vegetables?
Hello ok, I saw in his Instagram post he also got it from Google, if there are many raw vegetables that have tapeworms? more cabbage and cauliflower. I like to eat raw tomatoes.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Tapeworm parasitic infections consist of Tenia saginata types through cattle intermediaries or Taenia solium through pig intermediaries. Worm larvae can enter the human digestive tract by eating beef or pork in a state that is not cooked and has been infected with tapeworms before. Humans who have been infected then through their feces will contain worm eggs. Furthermore, worm eggs can spread through water contaminated with patient feces due to poor sanitation or personal hygiene. Vegetables that are washed with contaminated water and are not cooked properly can contain tapeworm eggs so that if consumed by humans can contribute to the spread of tapeworm infections. Therefore, to prevent its spread, it should not consume undercooked beef or pork and improve environmental sanitation and daily personal hygiene.
That's all, hope you can help.
