whats eating-you What’s eating you?

Assailants; the things which undermine our health including parasites, diseases, bacteria, viruses and harmful thinking.

Parasites are something we have to live with and some are harmless, some helpful, and others weaken us or make us ill.

Parasitism is a type of symbiotic relationship between organisms of different species where one organism, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, parasites are typically small and include viruses, bacteria, lice, fleas and worms which can be directly transmitted from person to person or acquired from our environment.

External parasites

These are the lice, fleas and the things that live on our body. Mostly they are just annoying, but they present a health risk when they are present in sufficient numbers or if they are carrying bacteria or viruses which may make us ill.

Internal parasites

Bacteria form a vast group and individually educated guesswork suggests that we have about 1.2 kilograms or 1% of our bodyweight of bacteria residing in our digestive tract, skin, oro-pharynx and genitalia. These beneficial bacteria help digestion and support our body functions so much so that they have become indispensable.

Viruses are usually less benign and often make us ill. In “What’s Eating You?” Eugene Kaplan recounts the true and harrowing tales of his adventures with parasites, and in the process introduces readers to the intimately interwoven lives of host and parasite. Kaplan has spent his life traveling the globe exploring oceans and jungles, and incidentally acquiring parasites in his gut. Here, he leads readers on an unforgettable journey into the bizarre yet oddly beautiful world of parasites. In a narrative that is by turns frightening, disgusting, and laugh-out-loud funny
