The pork tapeworm Taenia solium
This boy has a tapeworm growing inside him.
It eats our food and can grow up to 3 metres long. The pork tapeworm lives inside the small intestine. small intestine
How does it spread? Tapeworm segments come out with the faeces releasing thousands of eggs into the environment.
You can see the tapeworm segments in the faeces.
They spread easily and contaminate the soil and water supply. But the tapeworm eggs are too small to see.
The eggs spread easily Worm eggs get onto our hands, food and drinking water.
Tapeworm eggs grow into cysts in the brain, eyes and muscles causing epilepsy (fits), blindness, paralysis, severe headaches, insanity and even death. Swallowing tapeworm eggs is dangerous.
Brain damage caused by tapeworm cysts.
Free-range pigs get infected by eating human faeces containing tapeworm eggs. Pigs get infected
Pork infected with cysts. The eggs grow into cysts and can be found in infected meat.
People get tapeworms from eating cysts in undercooked meat.
