Ready for this?
The tapeworm, the longest recorded, was 82 feet long.
Think about that.
82 FEET! It was removed from a patient in India after he complained about stomach pains.
Tapeworms eat non-stop. They can grow quite rapidly and cause all kinds of pain, diarrhea, anemia, bowel obstructions.
And anyone can get a tapeworm. All you have to do is eat some raw or uncooked meat. An estimated 20 million people a year are infected with tapeworms.
They also say that tapeworms can live for over 25 years.
Best buds. Who’s whispering in your ear? Probably your long, long lost friend.
