Bovine Tapeworm

Bovine Tapeworm 

Many people are "home" for the parasites do not even know it. Put them in a very easy - just eat their larvae infected food or not washing hands after using the street. There are many types of human parasites, one of which is bovine tapeworm.
Bullish or unarmed tapeworm (Latin Taeniarhynchus saginatus or Taenia solium), (born Tapeworm)
Frankly, not very pleasant neighborhood. It's not just a small "worm", who settled in your gut, but a real giant, reaching a length of 4.10 meters!
His entire body consists of a head (skodeksa) and many small square-shaped segments, the number may reach 1,000-2,000 units. Segments of the rear part of the body are self-reproductive system and are adapted to breeding. On the head are four suckers without hooks, so it was called unarmed.
In bovine tapeworm is a 2 owner: main (human) and intermediate (RS). People have picked up this parasite suffer teniarinhoze. Sick is not difficult, especially in areas of intensive livestock farming. Suffice it to eat infected raw (eg, beef), poorly roasted or dried meat containing larvae of the parasite - cysticerci.
When teniarinhoze the following symptoms: general weakness, nausea, dizziness, low stools, loss of appetite, irritability, insomnia, weight loss and much more in this vein.

The first time you can not even be aware of their tenants. When injected into the gastrointestinal tract larva freed from its protective shell, and after a while begins to grow vigorously and to share. The worm grows in size and 2.5-4 months after it is ready to breed. Ripe segments (proglottids) are separated from the body with feces get into the environment.
That's when, in his chair begin to notice wriggling white tapeworm segments or even worse, they begin to separate from the anus to get out, then there is no laughing matter. Each "piece" is a set of eggs, which they leave, actively crawling on the grass. And it all starts over again.
Cows eat this grass. Eggs containing infective larvae already fall in the intestines of animals and of them into larvae. They perforate the intestinal wall and enter the bloodstream, are carried throughout the body. Often ends up in the muscles, which over time are covered by a shell and transformed into cysticerci. And then a matter for the man.

If no action is taken to eliminate the parasite, it can survive in the human gut to 18-20 years! During the year a worm lays about 600 million eggs. And how will his whole life, and to fear.Bovine tapeworm is found virtually everywhere, but mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, South America and in some Eastern European countries.
