How a vegetarian got a pig tapeworm in his brain2/27/2013
Swearing off meat to stay healthy? It didn't work that way for Aussie punk rocker Jay Whalley. Sure, his veggie lifestyle kept him horse, donkey and water buffalo-free, but the Frenzal Rhomb band member bizarrely found himself with a pig tapeworm egg living in his brain. At first docs thought it was a tumor after he suffered seizures last month, but they found the bug when they sliced in to remove it. Whalley promptly posted this gruesome incision pic on Facebook, explaining that it was all thanks to a pig-eating friend who neglected to wash his hands after using el bano, then graciously prepared Whalley's tapeworm-laced vegetarian burrito. Guess he might as well have enjoyed a juicy steak. [Source]
