I have tried some crazy diets to loose weight but never and I mean NEVER would I eat a bug, worm or any other wildlife that was alive to loose weight. I would just succomb to being fat if that was the only solution.

Yuck. I can't imagine ever being so desperate to try something like this. I think I would chose to stay overweight!

Putting a documented parasite into your body to loose weight is ridiculous. Yes people may have used it before but it doesn't make it a smart choice.

OMG Lilli..I don't know whether to laugh, cry or be ill. I definitely bow to your great knowledge on this subject.
It's fascinating in a sick way.

That article is highly misleading. It makes it sound like only snake oil salesmen sold them in the past...and that women didn't use them long term back then, and nobody knew how to deal with them. In fact, tapeworms used as a weight loss technique, were EXTREMELY common. They were used widely through the 1950s. Women would swallow a tapeworm and then leave it in until their fingernails started peeling. Then they would "flush" the worm, wait two weeks, and start over.

The fact that the doctor in the article didn't know how to treat that situation is shameful. All he'd have to do is call the local vet.

I've personally known two older women who used tapeworms for weight management. You probably know some too, though these days they are less likely to admit it.

I saw a report on this a couple years ago showing how they were "manufacturing" the tapeworms for distribution. They would intentionally infect a cow and dig the eggs (or larvae, or whatever) out of its feces. If the thought of a tapeworm taking up residence in your gut wasn't enough, that should seal the deal. *shudders*

I got the "chest burster" scene from Alien into my head. Did she even stop to consider how she would get the thing out when she ordered it, I wonder.

"it would develop into a 30-foot-long tapeworm in your body,” Quinlisk says. “The worm would get into your gut – it’s got little hooks on the head – and it would grab onto your intestine and start growing.” "

GAH!
