From eating Sushi you can get this parasite<br /> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anisakis">Anisakiasis</a><br /> <br /> As for weird parasites, check this out<br /> <a href="http://www.livescience.com/strangenews/060803_tgondii_culture.html">Study: Cat Parasite Affects Human Culture</a><br /> <br /> This one is REALLY weird<br /> <a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/newsid_4200000/newsid_4209000/4209004.stm">Tongue-eating bug found in fish</a><br />

Super citations, friends <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/rolleyes.gif' alt='Rolling Eyes'>; such a comfort.<br /> <br /> This caught my eye: "including a multitude of creatures that even parasitize parasites, such as mites that live beneath the scales of fleas."<br /> <br /> All my life, I've been quoting:<br /> <br /> "Big fleas have little fleas, upon their backs to bite 'em;<br /> And little fleas have littler fleas; so on, ad infinitem!"<br /> <br /> I never realised that that is literal truth.<br /> <br /> Henneguya zschokkei (sorry for the mis-spelling).<br /> I can't find any discussion of human health risks posed by Henneguya spp. Anyone?<br /> <br /> My Gravadlachs is looking mighty appealing. How about a plea bargain? I continue eating sushi (& Gravadlachs), but get my doctor to de-worm me from time to time.<br /> <br /> e.p.1

Friends:<br /> <br /> Replying to rearguard: "Confusion with Human Spermatozoa." I saw that story and was also fascinated.<br /> <br /> <br /> And to Dio: I've been thinking on your interesting question. I'd say it'll do if you just give a big "AMEN!" to Maxine here:<br /> <br /> http://www.tv.com/users/HiTekRedNek2112/profile.php?action=show_blog&entry=m-100-25043066&print=1<br /> <br /> <br /> Vive la Reine<br /> e.p.1

"Four Worms and a lesson"<br /> <br /> <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/lol.gif' alt='Laughing Out Loud'> <br /> <br /> Made me laugh, thanks.<br /> <br /> In you had not noticed those embedded beads, you would probably have enjoyed that salmon and not noticed a thing, or perhaps enjoyed it more than usual due to the the extra flavor. One can only imagine what sort of hidden creatures we ingest each day without a clue.<br />

I remember back in 1990 tying up alongside theIceberg Bay, Jimmy Pattison's fish buying barge. I was astounded when I saw how net caught fish were being handled. They had an opening for two days. Most boats piled their ice in the hold in a big cone shape, then piled fish, guts in, on top, It was extremely hot weather. Because they hadn't nmet their quota, the opening was exrtened two more days. The piles of fermenting fish in the hold was given two more days to ferment. Then it took a couple more days to get it in the packer via a fish pump which thoroughly mangled them , the tube which launched them into the packer hold being off centre a bit . Each fish fell ten feet and smacked the side of the hold with a loud smack( tenderising?)I was told it would take another week for the packer to get to Vancouver, then another week before it was unloaded.Only then would the guts be removed.<br /> I once rode with my truckdriver uncle to Seattle with 90,000 lbs of halibut. It reeked and had been parked out in the sun for several days.When we got to Seattle the receiver felt it and said"Just right'. I asked my uncle "Is this pet food?" He said "No , this is what people eat."<br /> Stick to troller caught fish .The governmet is trying to force trollers out of business( High quality fish) and increasing the net fleet( The kind of fish I just described) giving up high quality fish that few can compete with and putting us in competition with banana republics' standards.<br /> Brent
