Breaking: Cnn – Worms Can Invade Your Brain From Eating This Common Food

valutahandel deklaration The tapeworm may be found in different types of forms, but 3 of them can readily infect the brain. Helena Helmby from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: “It’s mainly the pork tapeworm that’s the main brain”.

تداول السهم People can be infected by the pork species, Taenia Solium in two forms: سهم السعوديه The first form of infection, is through consuming undercooked pork from infected pigs. This results in taeniasis – an adult worm residing in the intestine.

الخيارات الثنائية التداول مراجعة وسيط The second form of infections is actually the larval form. The infection can occur through contact with the feces of an infected human or pig. If the larval form reaches the nervous system, especially the brain, it may cause a condition called neurocycticercosis. This kind of infection can often cause epilepsy once inside the brain. The World Health Organization said that almost a 1/3 of epilepsy cases in countries where the disease is native are people who were previously infected by neurocysticercosis.

valutahandel risker The infection keeps spreading due to poor hygiene. Helmby said;  “In fact, you can actually infect yourself,” as poor hygiene, such as failing to wash your hands, could result in you consume the eggs of an adult worm living in your intestine. “Self-infection is common.”

الخيارات الثنائية منصات التداول According to the World Health Organization the global spreading of pork tapeworms is widespread, because of the increased number of cases in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Gkrania – Klotsas has 3 patients in her care in Cambridge who have previously experienced neurocysticercosis. المضاربة في الاسهم السعودية شركة اسهم شراء Cause for concern?

The treatment for Spirometra has been surgically until now, but, Bennett’s team in Cambridge, succeeded to find drugs, like praziqantil, that may be effective. These drugs are used against schistosomiasis (snail fever).  Other drugs utilized against cancer were identified as potential treatments. The treatments with anthelmintic drugs are targeting the worm, although infections with pork tapeworms are common.

Gkrania – Klotsas said: “I’m confident there will be more of this in the future”, who has already seen patients infected without even going abroad. The infection follows the people, wherever they are.

They say that people who are planning to travel, should be more aware when visiting regions where infections are commonplace. Helmby said: “The challenge at the moment is to be able to treat these infections.”  This is the challenge where genetics researchers have the chance to prove invaluable, as their sequencing continues to unveil the secrets of these mysterious parasites.
