Sushi-Lover Coughs Up 5-Foot-Long Tapeworm And Vows To Never Eat Salmon Sushi Again

A California man who ate sushi every day is changing his raw fish diet after a 5-foot-long tapeworm “wiggled” out of his body. The sushi-lover went to a Fresno hospital after he extracted a 5’6″-long tapeworm from his body. The man blames salmon sushi for this enormous parasite growing inside of him. Dr. Kenny Banh documented the stomach-churning incident on his medical podcast called “This Won’t Hurt a Bit.”

“Apparently it was still wriggling when he put it in the bag but it had died in transit,” Banh said. The anonymous patient showed the doctor the giant parasite, which was over 5-feet-long and was wrapped around a toilet roll. Are you ready for how the lengthy parasite was removed from the patient’s body? I don’t think you’re ready. Okay, here we go.
