Tapeworm Research (sources not cited shitbag! except where cited)

  • Tapeworm is any of a group of tapelike flatworms that live as parasites. Adult tapeworms live in the intestines of human beings or other animals. They have a headlike organ called a scolex and a series of blocklike segments in a flat body. A tapeworm has no mouth or intestine. It absorbs food through its body wall. Some tapeworms measure less than 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) long and have only a few segments. Others grow more than 30 feet (9 meters) long and have thousands of segments.

    A tapeworm's scolex has suckers or hooks or both. The worm uses the scolex to attach itself to the intestine of the host--that is, the animal in which the worm lives. The rest of the worm's body grows from a necklike region behind the scolex. Segments develop as the worm grows. Each segment contains male and female reproductive organs and produces many eggs. Segments filled with eggs may drop off the end of the body. The segments then may pass out of the host with body wastes and release the eggs outside the host.

    Almost all tapeworms have one or more larval (immature) stages and develop in two or three hosts. A newly hatched tapeworm is called an oncosphere. It is round and has small hooks. An oncosphere develops in a host that eats it or the egg it hatches from. The oncosphere burrows through the intestine of this host to muscles or other organs. If another animal eats this host, the oncosphere may develop into another larval stage or into an adult tapeworm. A person may be infected by a tapeworm by eating improperly cooked fish, pork, or beef that contains tapeworm larvae.

    Most adult tapeworms produce no bad effects in people. Sometimes they cause loss of appetite, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, nausea, weakness, or anemia. Tapeworm larvae are much more dangerous to people. A person who accidentally eats eggs of the pork tapeworm may have young worms develop in almost every organ of the body, including the eyes, brain, and heart.

    Scientific classification. Tapeworms belong to the class Cestoda of the phylum Platyhelminthes.

    Gentle Formula

    Have parasite infestations got the better of you?  Do your children have difficulty swallowing capsules?  Are you sick and tired of messy tinctures?

    Help is now at hand.  Ideal Health Services is pleased to introduce Vitaklenz for Kidz.

    After an overwhelming response to Vitaklenz and after listening to the wonderful constructive feedback from our satisfied customers Ideal Health Services has formulated Vitaklenz for Kidz.

    Treating children for parasites (worms) has always been difficult. Most commercial worm preparations are usually single dose and are only effective for a few types of worms, however, unless the treatment is taken over a prolonged period (1-2 months), the eggs remain and later re-hatch (Like head lice)

    Natural liquid preparations using herbs such as wormwood, pumpkin seed etc are very bitter and it is difficult to get young children to digest such preparations.

    Extensive research has gone into producing a chewable tablet containing essential anti-parasitic herbs. Only natural sweeteners have been used. Taste tests with children as young as 2 years old has proven very successful. (They like it so much they ask for more!)

    Vitaklenz for Kidz helps rid the body of both intestinal worms and blood-borne parasites such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
