Sushi Tapeworm 5 Feet Long Comes 'Wiggling Out' of Man

Sushi Tapeworm 5 Feet Long Comes 'Wiggling Out' of Man

A salmon sashimi lover from Fresno, while on the toilet, pulled out a tapeworm with a length of over 5 feet from inside his body.

The doctor who treated the man, Kenny Banh, appeared on the podcast to tell the story. Attempting to understand where he contracted the worm, the doctors asked him if he had been out of the country.

And this report from California will probably not do anything to change your mind: A Fresno man so obsessed with raw salmon that he ate it "almost every day" says he has now sworn off sushi for good after suffering an experience that you might call, at the very least, traumatizing.

The man grabbed it and pulled it out and soon learned it was actually a 5-and-a-half-foot tapeworm.

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.

Apparently, the tapeworm came "wiggling out" of his body and moved in his hand.

Garcia did however add "nothing is certain" with the clubs still deep in discussion and will wait for further developments before travelling to Italy himself.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued a research letter in January 2017 noting that the Japanese broad tapeworm (Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense) has been detected in wild salmon caught along the USA and Asian Pacific coasts and that it therefore poses "potential dangers for persons who eat these fish raw". Another Dr. Jessica Mason tells that the tapeworm can be 40 feet long.

The California resident said he won't be eating salmon anytime soon. And the CDC warned, "The risk of becoming infected with the Japanese tapeworm parasite is most prevalent when consuming raw or undercooked fish, particularly in dishes such as sushi, sashimi and ceviche".

"He says, 'I eat raw salmon nearly every day, '" Bahn told The Fresno Bee. The CDC says the parasite and the larvae that are buried deep in salmon muscle can be destroyed when fish is adequately cooked or frozen. But in exceptional cases the infection can cause complications including vitamin B12 deficiency, intestinal obstruction and gall bladder disease. And raw or uncooked fish has the maximum chances of coming in touch with the parasite.

A dose of de-worming medication, the same type given to dogs, is fortunately enough to kill all worms that may be residing in a human body.

Banh asked the man if he would continue to eat sushi.
