Fox News, the source of so many of the truly scary shows one finds on the tube these days, brings you something new to worry about.
According to the Fox 10 News, a Phoenix-area woman went into the hospital to have a potential tumor removed from her head. When doctors went into her skull to remove the tumor, they found a live tapeworm residing in her gray matter.
You can pick up these worms by eating undercooked pork or from contact with folks who don't wash their hands after using the bathroom. Apparently it is pretty uncommon, though not as uncommon as it used to be. The report says that the doctor who removed this particular brain worm removed five others in the last couple of months. Other doctors in the same hospital have run into them too. The operating doctor thinks this sudden rash of cases is a fluke.
Even better, there's video: Say hello to this lady's brain worm.
Quote of the day: "It could have ate holes in her brain, like an apple."
