'Enormous number of parasites in North Korean defector’s body, doctors say
The following article appeared on the Fox News site on November 17th
Doctors discovered an "enormous
number" of parasitic worms slithering inside the body of a man who
defected from North Korea this week, the ghastly find illustrating the food and
hygiene problems rampant inside the guarded walls of the Hermit Kingdom.
The North Korean defector, who hasn't
been identified, was a soldier who made a desperate dash for freedom Monday at
the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea. But the man was shot
at least five times by his former comrades as he made his escape.
Do guest worms have any particular privileges?
South Korean doctors said the
defector was in stable condition after surgery for his gunshot wounds. But
physicians identified another reason for alarm: an “enormous number” of
parasitic worms that are complicating his recovery, Reuters reported.
Doctors believed the soldier could
have had the parasites for a while.
Lee Cook-jong, the defector's lead
surgeon, showed photos of the parasitic worms, including an 11-inch long worm

parasite infection problems and serious health issues have been prevalent in
the country,” Choi Min-Ho, of the Seoul National University College of
Medicine, told Reuters.
Min-Ho said the injured defector’s
condition was “not surprising at all considering the north’s hygiene and
The BBC reported parasites can get
into humans through contaminated food or “being bitten by an insect or by the
parasite entering through the skin.”
The impoverished farmers of North
Korea reportedly use human waste as fertilizer for its crops, the BBC reported.
It's possible the feces is contaminating vegetables grown in the soil.
"North Korea is a very poor
country and like any other poor country it has serious health problems,"
Andrei Lankov of Kookmin University told the BBC.
Lankov warned the health conditions
in North Korea could be a problem for decades in South Korea if the two
countries ever reunified.
Ed.How much do you figure North
Korean Border Guards would charge to work OUR sieve-like, southern border? We
could offer a bounty for each…well, just a thought.
And come to think of it, guns would be unnecessary. Just sharing a nice can of peaches with our unannounced visitors might do the trick! A few dozen 11" worms later and...
