“The leading cause of iron–deficiency anemia worldwide is a parasitic disease known as a helminthiasis caused by infestation with parasitic worms (helminths); specifically, hookworms.”
How many of you have ever done a parasite cleanse?
Did you know that 85% of people walking around don’t even know they are infested with parasites?
Major morbidity associated with hookworm infection is caused by intestinal blood loss, iron deficiency anemia, and protein malnutrition.
The worms suck blood and damage the mucosa. However, the blood loss in the stools is not visibly apparent.
Humans contract hookworms through hookworm larvae found in dirt contaminated by feces.
Anemia results from hookworms feeding on your blood. You’re more at risk of having severe anemia if you also don’t eat well, are pregnant, or have malaria.
