10 Alarming Signs That Your Body Is Full Of Dangerous Parasites

Intestinal parasites are multiple and have various forms. Pinworms, dientamoebas fragilis, trichinella, tapeworms, hookworms or labia are parasites that can live in the body by laying eggs. They feed on red platelets and food that the individual consumes. These parasites may seem terrifying but in general they are not dangerous. They are often troublesome and can cause unpleasant symptoms.

Among the most common worms found are the pinworms, small round white worms (between 5 and 10 millimeters) that live in the digestive tract. These worms are contagious and most often infect children with anal itching. We also find the tapeworm, called solitary worm, consisting of rings that are eliminated regularly. It is estimated that each year in France, nearly 100,000 people catch a tapeworm. What is certain is that there are currently 3 billion people who are infected with parasites, according to estimates by the World Health Organization (WHO).
