Giardia Lamblia, a parasite in humans and animals. It lives in the intestine and is passed in the stool. It is protected by an outer shell that allows its survival outside the body and in the environment for long periods of time.
Most people become infected through food and water sources, tap water, streams or rivers. Giardia is also commonly transferred from a pet and poor hygiene habits.
Hookworms, Pinworms and Roundworms are types of parasites with long cylindrical, tough bodies. Often people are infected and do not experience symptoms of parasites.
Trichinosis (Trichinella Spiralis) is a roundworm found in animals and humans (carnivores).
Hookworms (Ancylostoma Duodenale)are found tropical areas where soil is warm and moist.
They lay eggs or larvae and usually incubate in soil. Hookworms burrow into the skin usually through the souls of the feet.
They can live inside the human body for up to 15 years!!!
Larva travels through the bloodstream to the lungs, making their way to the trachea entering the throat, where they are swallowed and arrive at their destination, attaching to the small intestine. Where they drink blood.
Hookworm parasites symptoms include:
Hookworms are the only worms with teeth.
Roundworms are the most common, infecting 25% of the world's population!
Up to 64% of people in the South Eastern US carry these types of parasites.
Spread via soil, food, or other substances infected with human feces.
Roundworms are similar to hookworms in life cycle, beginning as larva passing through human skin, and making the same journey to the intestines. However, they only live a couple years.
A female worm can produce 200,000 eggs per day!
Roundworm Parasites Symptoms:
Signs of infection can be found on the souls of the feet. Often displayed as lumpy areas (worm's nest) closer to the ball of the foot.
