HUNDREDS of Australians may not know their brains are infested with a rare sharp-toothed parasite caught from eating undercooked river fish.

Alfred Hospital doctors said yesterday 19 people have been diagnosed with the rare 1mm-2mm worm, which is found in Thailand and China.
Infectious diseases expert Dr Andrew Fuller said: "I see a lot of weird infections, but this is one of the weirdest."

Symptoms of the condition include exhaustion and strong stomach pain.

...so...is this the reason Aussies seem to have less braincells/brain power than the average Kiwi...

...poor Aussies are having their brains noshed on by some little worm...and all the while we Kiwis just ragged on them thinking they were just plain old slow...


...almost makes me feel guilty now...



...almost...

Seems to me that things are getting more and more weird everyday. Perhaps nature is trying to get rid of a mass amount of the population.

If the "worms" can think I bet they would be like, first Ill eat his brain, get out before he dies, then go munch on another fish.

Wow, the life cycal of a brain eating parasite.
