I always cringe when I see meats and vegetables being handled by numerous Thai shoppers...how many have just come from the toilet...or have not washed their hands all day?  Gloves would be a big improvement!

Don't forget the nose pickers.

Among the veg used in the analysis were parsley, coriander, basil,

Its Very alarming and disturbing news. And just eating steaks with beers isn't a long term solution either.

What? Have you tried?

What did the little goat say to baby rabbit after the latter wouldn't believe that the carrot it was munching on was infested with tapeworms?

"I kid you not."

and how are these worms getting on the fresh veg ?

 

this is quite alarming

Pig <deleted> is used as fertilizer in Thailand. In Thailand, tapeworms live in humans and pigs (in the meat and feces). In the West, tapeworms have mostly been eradicated from pigs and humans. The eggs and worms also get onto vegetables when infected people handle them after not washing their hands when they go to the bathroom.

A lot of Thai's have worms, and other parasites such as liver flukes. Up in Isaan I have seen the septic tank trucks emptying out in farmers' fields.

The wife and I take a dose of Praziquantel every six months.

 Suranee University is not a Medical University. They specialize in Civil Aviation. Great source. Try Chulalongkorn or Mahidol Universities if you want real sources.
