Should we be eating the eggs of parasites?: You be the judge!

Oh, look: Here's an article about how eating parasitic worm eggs might alleviate the symptoms of chronic bowel disease. (In addition to that, however, it will also give you parasitic worms, so the whole worm egg treatment is kind of a double-edged sword at this point.)

I don't feel like summing up the article for y'all right now, so I'm just going to paste some excerpts for you to suss out:

"A man who swallowed worm eggs... restores mucus production in the colon... abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea... (parasitic worm)... self-treatment with the worm eggs... increase mucous production in the entire colon... the worms trigger a big sneeze of the gut... lucky... may exacerbate bowel inflammation.... a worm that infects pigs."

Pretty rich stuff, eh? You could just eat that with a spoon.
