Tapeworm Found In U.S. Salmon

The Japanese broad tapeworm, which was known to infect Asian Pacific salmon has now been found in fish from U.S. waters. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, in the human body, the parasite can grow to be up to 30 feet long. The CDC reports that most people have no symptoms when infected, but some suffer weight loss, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The tapeworm infection appears to be uncommon though, with only 2,000 reported cases, mostly in northeastern Asia. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/01/12/Tapeworm-now-found-in-US-salmon/7741484241983/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
