Worms protect from Giardia, and vice-versa on 08/27/2013 22:34:43 MDT Print View

Don't want to get Giardia? Infect yourself with hookworms instead!

The ultimate in lightweight protection from nasties in the water – leave the filter/chemicals/boiling behind!

"... people infected with worms were less than half as likely to contract G. lamblia as their worm-free counterparts..."

".. those infected with [Giardia] were 70 percent as likely to contract a parasitic worm."

A fight between gut parasites means a win for people

Any volunteers for the first round of tests? :-)
