A California man who ate sushi every single day visited the emergency room complaining of stomach pains and a bloody stool. Yes, we know that's gross. Initially, the physicians on hand were skeptical when he asked to be examined for worms, but luckily for him, they ended up checking.  Or unluckily, depending on how you look at it, because doctors ended up removing a FIVE FOOT tapeworm from this man's intestine. Dr. Kenny Bahn recalled the event, saying he unraveled the tapeworm on a toilet paper roll, and how the patient felt like "his guts were coming out." https://twitter.com/ChristinaABC30/status/954233922157604865 The patient was treated with medication to help remove the rest of that beast, and is expected to be ok.  It remains to be seen if his diet changes after this experience, though!
