No Worms For You!

By following the kosher way of eating and preparing food, you will become healthier and you will stop the degree of risk that you ordinarily might have towards bringing in trichinosis and other horrible worms and parasites into your life. Eat kosher! Recently I was having a conversation with a friend here , about health and the friend mentioned something that they had read in the news. I was totally shocked at the story but I kept on listening because I am very interested in any health topics.

As I listened, I cringed, and I thought that I had been transported back to a time when the earth was young, and less polluted than it is now. I was taken back to a time when so many people contracted worms and worm diseases from animals that it was a regular thing , not an oddity. Problem is that today, society still believes that trichinosis is a thing of the past. Society still thinks that humans can protect themselves simply by cooking pork a lot. That is not the truth. What you do not realize is that you can contract the disease and hundreds of other diseases from germs, bugs, parasites and other things that come directly from another human’s hands . People in fast food restaurants and some other restaurants can and do and will pass on parasites to others and these others will not know that they are infected until it is too late.

Recently I have heard talk from people who said they knew of real humans who had contracted worm brains and parasites. That is enough for me to begin taking precautions. Brain worms are totally unnecessary and avoidable. So, start your new health habits to avoid those unnecessary problems.

(As of the writing of this article, it has been rumored that laws are trying to be passed preventing the sale of over-the-counter wormers. Please watch for this in your country.) Apparently is has to do with the human consumption of horsemeat. I feel another article coming up about this.

Worming

One of the most important routine health care procedures in the life of domestic horses is appropriate worming. Simply grabbing a boxed wormer at the store may not only damage your horse over time (build resistance) but will pass by many of the other damaging parasites that a single wormer will not destroy.

Uncontrolled strongyles (blood worms) can case severe damage to the blood supply of the horse’s intestines. The worms migrate through the blood vessels and cause arteritis (inflammation of the arteries) and thrombosis (clots in the arteries). This damage may result in chronic loss of bowel function, pain (colic), and even death. The damage caused by strongyles, is the main reason that parasite control is so important to the health of your horse.
