Check out the Pork Tapeworm, man. Freaky for days. The Pork Tapeworm is an intestinal parasite found throughout the world, and is most prevalent in countries where pork is eaten. The adult worm is found in humans and has a flat, ribbon-like body, which is white in color. Eeeww. Its distinct head contains suckers, which is cool as well as terrifying. It is transmitted to pigs through human feces and to humans through uncooked or undercooked pork. Wait. What? Anywho, Pork Tapeworm.
