If you want to lose weight, take a Microbiology class

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Fellow classmates say they do not want to eat ever again.

Our professor (who is thin and regularly stops to entone, "We are all going to die!") fills our evenings with statistics of fecal-contaminated self-serve soda fountains, food service workers who are carriers of terrible diseases and how many weeks or even years assorted microorganisms can remain viable in and on inanimate surfaces.

We look at slides and photos of encysted larvae from the brains, hearts, muscle and eyes of people who had pork tapeworm or hookworm or Toxoplasma gondii (which is transmitted by cat litter, but guess what? You can get it by eating undercooked meat. Yummy!) We watch videos of people having surgery to remove brain tumors that aren't really tumors but are really worms from undercooked pork.


(They don't really look evil enough to cause all that, do they?)

Oh, and don't forget that dogs aren't entirely innocent either, because they eat garbage and poop and then they come in and kiss you on the lips - which means that YOU are eating it, too.

Did you lose your appetite yet? You will thank me later when you have lost five pounds. And I haven't even given any details! I can give LOTS of details.

We are all going to die(t)!

    It really makes one think, doesn't it? Whenever I read something like this, I tell myself I never want to eat fast food again, or go out to a restaurant... but really, no matter what we do and where we go, we can't get away from all germs, bugs, worms and other contaminants. Uggghhh....
