The idea of eating raw meat is enough to scare some people, especially because of how dangerous we hear it can be…Some people believe meat tartar is a true delicacy whereas others, see it as ‘disgusting’.

This man’s story seems to confirm this general way of thinking. This seventy-year-old man ate raw meat, pork and veal to be more exact and when he started to find it difficult to speak, he went to hospital. After undergoing multiple scans, doctors were stunned by what they saw.

Hundreds of larva eggs were discovered living inside his body. According to specialists, these larvae were tapeworms. The patient had them everywhere! In his hips, his head, his spine, etc.

Their diagnosis was called ‘neurocysticercosis’. Neurocysticercosis is a parasitic disease of the nervous system. It is asymptomatic (meaning it doesn’t show any symptoms) until it starts causing damage to your brain. The patient could eventually suffer from epileptic fits and problems related to their mobility and speech.
