Title: For those worried about parasites
Post by: kurite on July 06, 2010, 01:43:25 pm
The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) estimates that over sixty million people in the United States are likely infected with Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite associated with raw meat and contact with cat feces.
Im going to go out on a limb here and say that there aren't 60 million raw paleos out here in the US. So even if you don't eat raw meat your gonna get parasites associated with eating it. So why not get the benefits of eating raw meat if your going to get the parasites anyway?
There are more than a hundred different types of parasites who enjoy living out their lives inside of human beings. In the United States alone, one-third of nearly six thousand fecal specimens tested came back positive for nineteen species of intestinal parasites.4, at the Parasitology Center, Inc. (PCI) in Tempe, Arizona.
In other words if you have a strong immune system your fine.

P.S. I realize this article is an anti parasite website but most of the people infected with these parasites are not suffering from any symptoms and the ones that are probably have a weakened immune system from years of SAD.

In my opinion, you should not have a problem with parasites on a RPD diet because there is no need for them. I've read that parasites are the janitors of the body and feed on degenerative tissue and toxins only. Therefore, once one on this diet detoxifies, parasites in the body will likely not have a food supply and die. Yeah, 60 million people have parasites because they're full of toxicity. In environmental and agricultural science, we know that certain parasites kill plants that are becoming weak. In other words, its natures way of keeping the good specimens on the planet and getting rid of the ones that are not needed. I speculate that our bodies are the same way. An animal becomes weak and parasites come in to kill us off unless we short their food supply, i.e. dont give them unhealthy tissue and toxins to feed off of. Other people will say that parasites are healthy for you, of that I am not sure. Nevertheless, it has been known that they are the planet's janitors and its their job to get rid of unhealthy and sick sentient beings.
