This is a posting in which I, as an RN, have also just recently had hundreds of flukes, along with my comments on the lack of knowledge doctors and western medicine has on the topic of parasites. Personally, it is my strong belief that our medical system is just totally in denial because they do not want to look it in the face and realize that it could happen to them, as well. Believe me, more than anything, doctors and other healthcare workers' biggest fear and dislike is that of being a patient and this pushes the limits of what we all feel is gross. But instead of looking straight at it and giving it legitimacy, along with efforts for prevention and treatment, they choose to not confront their own fears and thus, turn the other cheek. It's appalling.. Check out what I wrote about in my posting!
