Horrifying! Sushi lover discovers 5-foot tapeworm 'wiggling out' of him

Sushi lover finds 5ft tapeworm dangling from his rectum and yanks it out himself

A man with a hearty appetite for sushi pulled a 5-and-a-half foot tapeworm out of his body, and then went to the emergency room to find out what was happening.

A California man is likely adjusting his consistent sushi propensity in the wake of finding a tapeworm that may have entered his body through the crude salmon he adores to such an extent.

Banh told the podcast This Won't Hurt A Bit that the young man had approached him during a shift complaining of bloody diarrhea and asking for treatment for worms in early August 2017.

The patient, who has not been identified, said he ate raw fish, especially salmon sashimi, nearly every day.

For any salmon sashimi addicts reading this, that doesn't mean you have give up your habit on pain of contracting a tapeworm infection, but it does mean you need to make sure the raw salmon you eat has been handled properly.

Dr. Banh shared his experience treating the man on a recent episode of the podcast "This Won't Hurt A Bit". So, he grabs what he thinks are entrails, pulls and takes a look. "My height", Bahn said.

According to the CDC, the Japanese tapeworm and related species can grow up to 30 feet long. The tapeworm was living inside his body for some time.

Facebook to emphasize 'trustworthy' news via user surveys
The company chose to use community input to rank news sources in an attempt to be as objective as possible, Zuckerberg said. This isn't the first solution to the news problem that Facebook has tried.

It was previously thought the parasite called Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense, more commonly known as Japanese broad tapeworm, only infected fish caught in Asia. They weren't his entrails gooping out, but rather a tapeworm, he realized.

When it comes to raw fish, however, the best way to kill parasites is freezing.

When questioned, he insisted he had not been overseas - and revealed that he ate raw salmon every day, reported MailOnline.

Doctors have been warning people that people could be affected with the parasite through the consumption of raw pork, fish and fish eggs.

In some cases, complications can lead to intestinal obstruction and gall bladder disease, according to the CDC. The treatment for the patient: a pill that is no different from the single dose given to a dog to kill worms.

Tapeworms most often cause only minor symptoms, but can in some cases can turn into a major medical problem. He hadn't been exposed to parasitic infection by travel, or by drinking contaminated liquids, or by eating raw meat, he was sure - which really only left one possibility: sushi.
