The common belief in more developed countries is that parasites are only found in underdeveloped countries. This simply isn’t true, and unfortunately this myth continues to spread. Parasites are very common in developed countries and some estimates state that around 50% of people in these countries have parasite problems.
The good news is that parasites can be cleansed safely and easily.
How Do You Get Parasites?
Intestinal parasites can infect the gastro-intestinal tract of humans and other animals. While they can live in different areas of the body, they mainly stick to intestinal walls. You can get parasites in a number of ways; they can come from the ingestion of undercooked meat, unwashed fruits and vegetables, sushi, or infected water. You can also get them while travelling, from contact with animals, or through skin absorption.
