Do NOT Import Tapeworms from Juarez to Shed Pounds, says Everyone
No matter what your best friend tells you, a tapeworm from Mexico is not your BEST option to lose weight.
If this hasn't happened to you or you didn't know, yes it turns out many people have tried this extreme weight loss solution.
Even Joanna Barba has inquired about this very thing on the Buzz Adams Morning Show.
So this article is really for her.
Why you may ask would somebody eat a tapeworm?
Well to make a long story short, basically, the tapeworm, which is alive, will live in your digestive tract, and it will eat the food that you eat.
So in reality it's stealing nutrition from your body, and that's what makes you lose weight.
Is this an epidemic? Should the people know? Is this a legitimate concern?
No. Yes. And, no.
But, just in case, the next time your friend tells you about their sweet hookup for Mexican tapeworms that they get from Juarez like Nancy Regan asked the country to do, JUST SAY NO.
1. THEIR HEADS HAVE SUCTION CUPS AND GRAPPLING HOOKS.
2. THEY WEAR THEIR STOMACH ON THE OUTSIDE.
3. TAPEWORMS CAN BE HUGE.
4. IF YOU GOT A TAPEWORM, YOU PROBABLY WOULDN’T FEEL SICK.
5. NO, YOU CAN’T DRAW OUT A TAPEWORM WITH MILK. (It's a thing)
