PORK TAPEWORMS Pork tapeworms start out as larvae inside a pig. If the pig is infested, slaughtered and not cooked right, there's a chance the larvae could get inside a human body.
"The weird thing is that pork tapeworms have to get inside the body of a human in order to develope into the next stage of its life cycle," Stewart says. "No other animal works. We are called 'the obligate host' of the pork tapeworm."
Once inside a human body, the pork tapeworm settles inside the stomach, where it grows to adulthood, reproduces and waits — as long as 20 years.
"Adult tapeworms will eventually leave on their own or die," Stewart says. "But here's the thing: A person who is infected with tapeworms can spread those worms [or their] eggs to other people directly, without having to bother with a pig during the process.
That's one reason it's important to wash your hands after you use the bathroom, Stewart says — particularly if you handle food.
"When you swallow one of those eggs, instead of getting the larvae, then that little creature hatches and behaves very differently," she says. "It doesn't just settle in your stomach and start laying eggs — it travels all over your body."
Microscopic tapeworm eggs have been found all over the body — including the liver, lungs and brain.
"You actually have cases of people being diagnosed with brain tumors only to find out what they actually have is a tapeworm living in their brain," she says. "And what really astonished me is that tapeworms in the brain are the leading cause of epilepsy worldwide."

"7. Romans 14;14 I know, and am persuaded by Yahoshua that there is nothing unclean of itself: But to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
The word unclean in this verse should have been translated common (2839 koinos - defiled, unclean, unholy), referring to meats offered unto idols, not the word unclean ( 169 akathartos - impure, foul, unclean), referring to the impure flesh of animals that were never created to be eaten.
Please read Leviticus chapter 11. This chapter teaches you what is clean or unclean to eat. A pig is as unclean today as he has always been." SOURCE
"In ancient China and certain parts of India, Mouse flesh was considered a great delicacy. In ancient Greece, where the Mouse was sacred to Apollo, Mice were sometimes devoured by temple priests." SOURCE

5 fat field mice
1 cup macaroni
1/2 thinly sliced medium onion
1 medium can tomatoes
1 cup cracker crumbs
salt and pepper
Boil macaroni 10 minutes. While it is cooking, fry the field mice long enough to fry out some of the excess fat. Grease a casserole with some of this fat and put a layer of macaroni on it. Add onions, then tomatoes, salt and pepper well. Add field mice and cover with remaining macaroni. Sprinkle the top with cracker crumbs. Bake at 375 degrees about 20 minutes or until mice are well done. (Don't have any field mice? You could use 10 little sausages)
Eat less pork ...
THE DEVASTATING FLOODS CAUSED BY Hurricane Floyd and subsequent storms in North Carolina could have a health and environmental silver lining - if they help eradicate the spreading plague of pig and poultry megafarms there and elsewhere ["Hell in High Water", October 4]. To most of us, the term lagoon evokes a South Seas atoll with swaying palm trees and aquamarine waters. As neighbors of livestock farms know, lagoon means an open, leaky cesspool of slurried manure - even without a hurricane's onslaught. Even on dry, calm days, airborne bits of animal waste cause respiratory diseases. If you wouldn't want to live next to such a nasty place - and who really would - why not stop eating bacon sausages, ham sandwiches, roast pork, and hot dogs?

The undercover investigation into the production and sale of cat and dog fur began nearly 8 years ago with Humane Society of the US sending an investigator into China to determine how extensive the trade was.
