This still makes no sense to me. @_@
How can people mainly eat them on a few rare cases?
Oh well... I think I get what you're trying to say.
"Mainly they're accidentally ingested with unprepared foods, like meat. On a few rare cases, however, they're purposefully eaten to aid in getting thinner." Right? ohmy.gif

I DIDN'T SAY THEY MAINLY ATE THEM.

I said that any case involving humans with tapeworms is usually by swallowing, as I'm pretty sure the majority of health problems involving tapeworms tend to be a result of the tapeworm living in them.

DOT DOT DOT

HOW ELSE DOES THE WORM GET IN? I'm pretty certain ingestion is the main way they enter the human's body. D:
I'd say maybe through the bloodstream, but that being the case, they couldn't very easily (Or at all) enter the stomach or intestine. D:

Wait a second.

I said not mainly because MOST HUMANS DO NOT ENCOUNTER TAPEWORMS.
I was referring by "did not mainly eat them" because most humans don't have parasites in their stomaches. dry.gif

Then I said OUT OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE A CASE RELATED TO TAPEWORMS, it usually invovles the tapeworm being swallowed.

dry.gif

How would they get in without being eaten?

I meant as in things like allergic reactions, etc.

In other words, MOST INCIDENTS involving tapeworms and humans are with swallowing them. =3

OK. But...Ummm... I think that's the only incident. XP
"Oh shoot! I poked a tapeworm and my hand swelled up huge!"
Yeah, most stories I hear about tapeworms have to do with ingestion. XP

Slight bit of implied sarcasm on "most" for me... But umm... Internet cannot imply sarcasm. D:

OK OK OK...I had to do a project on Tapeworms for Health class

You can get it two ways

1. Accidentaly ingestion in meats (undercooked) water (microscopic eggs in it so drink clean water) fruits (eggs in dirt on unwashed fruit)

2. Accidently swallowing an infected flea (usually by really little kids)




Usually only in 3rd world countries and easy to treat, go to a doc and get ur meds AND usually harmless (the spymptoms are mild and even then rarely show up, the most severve cases (which can lead to seizures and high fever) hardly ever shoe up its like 1:1000000)
