Parasite Is Worst Than Having A War
Ever wonder why we get sick? Most people believe it's because of "germs" but it's actually humans and other organisms that are constantly under attack by parasites. Parasitism is a kind of harmful coaction between two species. It is a relation between two individual called host. Parasite is mainly a food coaction, but the parasite derives shelter and protection from the host. Parasites are intelligent, they do not ordinarily kill its host, at least not until the parasite has completed its reproductive cycle. Parasites may not cause immediate mortality but they cause damage to the body structure, and may cause death. Parasites can be divided into different classes of parasite: Toxoplasmosis, Malaria, Tapeworm, etc. It is very easy to become a parasite host, but we can prevent this by using hygienic practices to protect our health. Parasites have spread a role on earth and it is our responsibility to understand the role of parasites, learn to coexist with parasites, without allowing the parasites to enter or more importantly take up residence and stay inside our body.
To begin with, Parasites are all around us: in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. Parasites lives in a tremendous diversity in ways and adaptations to benefit from their hosts. Many parasites are satisfied with just living off of their hosts, while others decide their hosts must die. In the United States, recent doctors claimed, "In recent medical studies it has been estimated that 85% of the North American adult population has at least one form of parasite living in their bodies. Some authorities feel this figure may be as high as 95%." This
statement shows the statistics of our population being infected by parasites. Parasites have adaptations, special body parts that make it easier for them to infest you. There are parasites that can cause you lots of discomfort or disease. Majority of the doctors agree that "90% of all disease and discomfort is directly or indirectly related to an unclean colon due to impacted fecal matter." We think that our body is clean enough to not be infected by parasites, but it's also how we eat our food. Junk food can cause an unclean colon. When that happens, it's a perfect environment for the parasites. If people only knew of the harm in eating junk food they would think twice. If they could see what it does to their insides they'll be shocked. It's difficult for humans to face the truth that parasites live inside us and cause this much harm to our bodies. Close your eyes, and imagine the following scenario: you’re lying in bed at night, when you feel a sudden itch in your throat. You ignore it at first, but it gets more and more persistent, until finally your throat feels clogged up. You grab a Kleenex and cough into it, and something moist and smooth slithers out. As you squint your eyes at the damp Kleenex, you realize you just coughed out a long, threadlike worm. Say hello to your very own tapeworm. You then wonder, how did this tapeworm get inside of me? I’ll tell you how, meat. People usually get infected by the parasite by eating poorly cooked meat. A cow happens to eat grass and the tapeworm eggs then make their way into the cow’s body, where they develop into adult tapeworms, and lay their own eggs. The tapeworminfested meat is then bought and cooked by people and some of us don't have enough sense to not eat undercooked beef, so the tapeworm wiggles its way into a human being’s gut. It then clings to the walls of our stomach or intestine, where it can stay for up to twenty years, and absorbing your body’s nutrients. Don’t be one of those people who can’t cook meat properly. if your meat is oozing red, those worms aren’t dead.
