    You say tapeworm like it's a bad thing. There has been some evidence to suggest that parasites may help to control asthma (warning -- do NOT read past the "The Decision to..." if you have a weak stomach).

    Personally, I'm okay with raw meat, in some circumstances. The less clean the restaurant is, the more well done I want my food cooked (and if it's not looking acceptable, sometimes it's best to go somewhere else) -- but if it's a well established, clean and busy Ethiopian restaurant, (or I'm with someone who speaks the language and they feel comfortable there), I'm willing to eat Gored Gored.

      I've eaten sushi, and in the distant past (when US grocers would grind meat in front of you, preferably from locally-grown beef), I've even eaten raw beef. I won't eat raw meat any longer, nor will I eat raw eggs. I just don't have that much trust in the output of agro-factories.

      And I would never trust anecdotal evidence that hookworms cure, relieve, or prevent asthma or allergy.
