North Korea's million man army: full of parasites from contaminated food

So this is the soldier that defected from North Korea earlier this week.

'Enormous number' of parasites in North Korean defector's body, doctors say


Doctors discovered an "enormous number" of parasitic worms slithering inside the body of a man who defected from North Korea this week, the ghastly find illustrating the food and hygiene problems rampant inside the guarded walls of the Hermit Kingdom.

Lee Cook-jong, the defector's lead surgeon, showed photos of the parasitic worms, including an 11-inch long worm found in the man's digestive tract.

“In my over 20 year-long career as a surgeon, I have only seen something like this in a textbook,” Lee told reporters.

Doctors said they discovered corn kernels in the man's stomach leading them to believe the worm's may be related to the hygiene and food problems experts have for years expected in North Korea.


In many of the NK threads, we see some folks claiming NK's army is highly trained and ready for war. I've seen claims that the civilians may be malnourished, but that's because all the good food goes to the Army to keep them ready to fight. Apparently this guy didn't get the memo. And he was one of the guys stationed on the border, where you would expect they would put their best troops. This isn't an isolated case either. These stories have come out of there for years. I've posted before about other North Korean Army defectors relating their horrible experiences about how malnourished and poorly kept the Army is. And their morale is in the gutter.

Can we please get rid of the myth that these guys would make an effective fighting force? Their potential effectiveness is highly suspect if you ask me. I know, I know. What about the artillery? For sure, artillery is deadly even if the guy firing it is sick, however most of their artillery can't reach Seoul, and the pieces that can can only hit the outskirts.

North Korea deliberately sent this guy so we would assume they were screwed up. We invade, the REAL Army comes up on us and wipes us out. Well, I'm on to them now

So a guy who is running from authorities, gets shot a couple of times, also has an untreated case of worms ... probably could not get to a doctor because ... running from authorities ....

All North Korean Army have worms.

Possibly this is SK and Western propaganda. They guy had worms ... big deal people!

It fits the pattern of Kim Jong Un, and how he treats people in his own country. There are a few important patterns notable about NK that tell the tale of the true condition of North Korea and their military. If American forces were to attack NK in the way they are well known for, (shock and awe), the NK military would crumble to pieces just like what happened in Iraq back in January 1990. Soldiers with tapeworms and other various parasites don't make good solid fighters. They run to their enemy's for deliverance from Kim Jong Un "the mad fatter". It would make an excellent Lego movie.

Congrats, you can read. Sort of. Try going back and reading it again, this time with an open mind. I linked to evidence that this isn't just an isolated case. Reading the entire post helps avoid embarrassing yourself like you just did.

This once again begs the question:

When will something concrete be done about Kim?

Sanctions and diplomacy don't count. They never work with him.

Something needs to be done now.....and I think many of you know what I'm talking about, because I've said it repeatedly.

This issue with Kim won't go away. I say this is the calm before the storm.

You've missed the point. That this specific person, a member of the military who is certainly not at the bottom of the military ladder or he would not have been assigned this job, is indicative of a widespread problem across North Korea with regards to parasitic infections in humans. His doctor has stated it the worst case he has ever seen outside of a textbook. What do you think the people at the lowest end of the social status look like if this guy has had these parasites in him for years?

While it may sound very disgusting as a human to live with parasites in our body, the reality is we are supposed to be exposed and have symbiosis with some types of worms. Some of them help to trigger the organs mucosal secretions which help reduce or combat inflammation. It has become somewhat of a new thing to ingest certain whipworms eggs as a treat to Inflammatory bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Humans have lived many generations without certain symbiotic relationships with helpful parasites. Now science wants to mimic the functions without the worm as a "safer" alternative. Yea I bet they consider nanobots and machines as safer. If it came down to that, I would stick with what nature already provided before we started destroying it.


When Parasites Could Be The Treatment Instead Of The Illness Does that mean we should all go infest ourselves with whipworms? NO, our bodies did not evolve with those relationships, it would take at least another two generations of chronic parasites for the body and the worms to be in harmony again. However, many third worlders, especially in villages with poor sanitary and hygiene standards continue to maintain this symbiosis to this day, and as a result none of their communities suffer from Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome!


I'm sure there is a middle somewhere between living in filth and re-introducing human symbiosis with planet Earth.

Be that as it may, this guy has way too many of the wrong type, according to his doctor.

I would bet that in North Korea, propaganda tells the people "don't worry, worms are good for your health" Like the Obama administration telling people that radiation is good for you.

Not doubting what you mention, but I'm thinking the kinds of worms found within the unfortunate people in NK, aren't the kind that inspire blissful productive living.

Between the worms, nuclear test mountain collapse, sanctions, and Trump's threats of annihilation, North Korea has decided to delay starting WWIII, lol.

Parasites have killed more humans than any other cause in history.

Parasites are the keyhole secret big pharma has been protecting....parasites and an acidic body state catalyse all diseases...many pharmacuticals help a little but help parasites a LOT more....which means you may mask small symptom but you will feed the killer parasites or build them a better environment to live in.Hulda Clark exposed the global effort to keep all of humanity sick by formulating and covering the globe with water cleansers which have a trojan-horse impact of actually encouraging parasitic growth within the body.....yes the chemicals kill some bugs but once ingested they break down into different chemicals which give you 1000 times the problems internally because these new chemicals help build a sympathetic acidic internal body in which ALL parasites dance and party till you die of some sickness they have catalysed.
