Hong Kong authorities urge those who swallow parasitic worms to think about their he alth
These are not extreme lovers, but desperate citizens who cannot (or simply do not want) to get rid of excess weight in any other proven way. There is an extremely controversial and highly controversial technology among doctors for "quick weight loss" with the help of parasitic worms. As you know, some worms feed on reserves of human subcutaneous fat. Fans of this diet deliberately swallow such parasites, and when they “eat up” the excess, they try to remove it from the body back.
The Hong Kong He alth Department is sounding the alarm. He strongly urges people not to risk their he alth and even life for the sake of untested and extremely dangerous methods of losing weight. Doctors remind that some worms can grow in the human body up to 40-50 cm in length, laying 200,000 eggs every day. And even if a thinner citizen pulls one worm out of the body, entire colonies of new parasites can remain there.
"The impact of worms on our body can be extremely dangerous to he alth due to serious complications of the digestive system, impaired conduction of the bile ducts and pancreatic ducts," said a representative of the department. - Worms can invade the lungs. Patients often require major surgery to bring such a worm out into the world!”
