Why did I open this thread!?!? Why are you holding a parasite? Glove or not, I'd have lit my hand on fire after touching something like that. Worms creep me out.

Yeah, many moons ago I was peeling a big buck mink and I swear I was attacked by an army of spaghetti worms. I wanted to burn the whole fur shed down..... didn't sleep for three days.

One reason I don't eat Chinese food looks like live bean sprouts sick, they are harmless to humans but their cousins in Africa do infect humans from drinking bad water.

exactly why i'll never eat coon again. used to find them only in the wrist joints and pads on mink, then later in coon and otter, and spread throughout the animal.

Yep, I've seen a few skinning coon here in Mo looks exactly the same. Saute them in Garlic butter over medium heat until crispy like a fry!

no need to saute them, just cover them with some warm ragu spaghetti sauce and enjoy.

Around 1000 people in America a year are treated for guinea worms.

In parts of Africa, guinea worms are extremely common. White doctors and nurses were pulling hundreds of huge worms out of boils in people in one African village, in a PBS documentary I watched. Some small worms migrate by the thousands to the eyes. You could see them writhing in the villagers eyes. The people were entering and defecating in the same water they drank, creating more worms and passing them on to others and themselves again. The guinea worms erupt from the boils and lay eggs in the water. The villagers had no sense of sanitation whatsoever.

What is dracunculiasis?
Dracunculiasis, also known as Guinea worm disease (GWD), is an infection caused by the parasite Dracunculus medinensis. A parasite is an organism that feeds off of another to survive. GWD is spread by drinking water containing Guinea worm larvae. Larvae are immature forms of the worm. GWD affects poor communities in remote parts of Africa that do not have safe water to drink. GWD is considered by global health officials to be a neglected tropical disease (NTD) the first parasitic disease slated to be eradicated.
Many federal, private, and international agencies are helping the countries that still have local GWD cases to eradicate this disease. During 2014, only four countries had local GWD cases: Chad, Ethiopia, Mali, and South Sudan. Cases have gone from 3.5 million per year in 1986 to 126 in 2014.
Ouch!

Africa seems like a great place to go except for all the diseases and parasites the Africans carry and all the violence they perform, including cannabilism, which is amazingly still common, even in some fairly developed areas.

Albino Africans are commonly hacked apart and eaten for magical purposes, as are dwarves and midgets.

Human smugglers extort more money out of family members of people being transported to Europe, by threatening to eat them if they are not given more money.

My Uncle Kent has gone and performed free dentistry and oral surgery in Africa and survived. My sister in law, Jen, has performed pediatrics there and survived too. Both had armed guards at their camps and were not allowed to leave the camps without armed guards.

I hope you stay safe and enjoy your trip. Get all your immunizations before going.

Keith

Even hogs are smart enough to defecate away from food and water unless they are in to small of a pen
