  1. There are several reasons, and it has been the subject of discussions on here before. Liver flukes is at the core of the matter, and you can get that in at least two ways: 1. Insufficiently fermented and cured pla ra. Pla ra must, according to authorities, be fermented and cured for at least 18 months, but many locally made versions of pla raa are only fermented and cured for about six months, which is insufficient to kill the parasites from the fish. Pla ra is an important part of Isaan som tam. 2. Eating the raw fresh water fish in Isaan. There may be other ways to get liver flukes, but these are not known to me.
