Only if you tested for them with appropriate blood tests. Blood tests, on the whole, do not reveal what you are not looking for.
Ok, I'll entertain the thought that a parasite could release an enzyme that the body builds anti-bodies against, but the parasite has hypothetically
mutated to produce an enzyme the body can't fight off, or isn't used to. Said enzyme would destroy anti-bodies, and would cause rampant cellular
growth. Good theme for a sci-fi story.
The historical record shows that largest percentage of cancer patients do not have parasites in their bodies, and their would be many case studies
First, what makes you think the parasite has hypothetically mutated.....parasites generallly have at least three life stages. Which makes them so
hard to eradicate. Their first form is a nymph form, where they do not feed, for a few days anyway. The pubescent stage, their bodies change into a
different form, and they not only occupy your body's exterior, by definition, the parasite in also living in your body in all its different stages of
life. I might mention here, that what kills one stage of their life, frequently does not kill the other stages, making them particularly hard to
eradicate. As far as I know, and I will look for some science sourcing to support this before returning, blood tests will only find them if
searched for,and their being millions,literally of them, mutating alll the time, makes testing for them quite difficult, and the
tests must be specific, looking for just that parasite.
Also, I don't think they exactly produce an enzyme. They are far more clever than this to further their life expectancy and ability to mutate so as
not to be eradicated. What they do is leave some kind of "marker" behind, subtly changing your chemistry in a way that will not destroy them, but
flag you, in a way, chemistry wise, as a perfect host, drawing ever more parasites to you, making you the perfect host. And no enzyme or antibody is
produced to fight them off, particularly in patients who are immuniologically challenged. And the parasite mutates quickly so if said antibodies or
enzymes to fight them are produced, they mutate, and in fact use this change, to mark you as a perfect host for others, proliferating their existence
The rampant cellular growth that you refer to is where cancer would enter the picture. Cells dividing rampantly to try to control the burrowing
damage the parasites are wreaking on your body; ergo, cancer, uncontrolled celll division trying to cure an incurable wound, as many of these
parasites are not only disease vectors, but burrowers, feeding on either your blood or the tissues of your body. Not so sci-fi really, if you start
looking into the research. And I will return soon with some medical abstracts supporting just these theories.
In fact, there are case studies accordingly. But it is a new topic of research, as I mentioned earlier, the previous medical specialty for this would
be Tropical Medicine, and is practiced rarely, if at all, in this country. Did you know in third world, tropical countries they eat ivermectin pills
daily like aspirin? Do some more googling. Think you might be surprised.
It has long been recognized that Chrohn's and other gastrointestinal diseases may in fact have an etiology that begins with parasitic involvement,
not discovered becasue the tests weren't looking for that. Test are not all inclusive. They look for certain things; they do not address every
