Two Tapeworm Proglottids placed inside an Echinoparyphium recurvatum. If you want to resolve the argument of whether this is a skin of a tomato or bell pepper, don't eat any over the course of a few days. Or, don't ingest the skin. Or, cut up the tomatoes, including the skins into very small pieces. When the E. recurvatum appear in your stool, you will have your answer. These are parasites, not undigested tomato skins.
The two on the right are called: Fasciolopsis buski.
you can see pubic hair and everything. why didn't you spare us? it looks to me to be like undigested tomatoe skins and some other foodstuffs that you didn't digest very well. why don't you double up on digestive enzymes.
this will probably be deleted for going against the grain. I don't know what the small white things are but I would wager my next 4 weeks paycheck that you are looking at tomato peel and tomato seeds. tomato skins are like corn, their outer shells don't digest.
This topic about whether these are tomato skins or some other food skins has been around for quite some time. Do they look like rolled up tomato skins? Yes! But these are spear-shaped protozoa. They are uniform in shape and appear in various sizes. Opened, they look like capes - again, all in uniform. Regardless of whether you eat tomatoes or not, the body is incapable of creating uniform tomatoe shoots upon digestion. They are PARASITES - E. recurvatum.
OK, back to your corners. I think the key here is what DJ said. If they are all UNIFORM, meaning the same shape then they are parasites. Tomato skins would not all miraculously be the exact same shape. Yes, they roll automatically, but you cannot chew them or digest them into perfect triangles or whatever shape these all are.
Agreed, countrymom! And I would know this first hand. I'm dealing with these critters by the thousands. All are small to large without any bite marks and unison is shape and with the appearance of a cape when unrolled.
well to address the statement about the uniform size, he/she did say that they recently at tomatoes. I glanced at the salad my wife was eating last night and noticed the tomatoes were all sliced into wedges, each about the same size.
I'm not trying to start anything, but I truly believe that is tomato skin. there are several types of foods that have skin that are not digestible.
I agree its possible, especially if you just swallow them without chewing, but take into consideration that the person said they ate them nights ago, plural. When I eat tomatoes they are out the next day. Now I also suppose this person could have an extremely slow digestive tract as well as not chewing any of the perfectly cut tomato wedges, but we are getting into a much greater chance of them not being tomato skins.
those things that you just posted might be parasites but the stuff posted by the starter if this thread is tomato skin. Coincidentally I used tomatoes last night in a recipe. had leftover today and took a pic of a tomato skin that was on my plate.
