Tapeworms are Gross

By Anupum Pant

As the host of this video suggests, eat before you watch. Tapeworms are gross, and harmful.

Tapeworms infect humans when they eat undercooked meat. They can grow as much as 3 to 10 meters inside you, live there for years and you might never realize that you actually are infected. Other times, the symptoms may be very mild. You might have a stomach ache, lose weight and so on. But a good indication is when you spot proglottids (a segment of a tapeworm) in your poop.

To not get these, you must ensure that the most inner parts of your meats reach at least 63 degrees Celsius (71 C for ground meat) when they are getting cooked.
