    Why do you contradict yourself at the end of your video? Not only is fully cooked pork perfectly safe,but you fail to mention that even vegetarians are at risk if the food is handled by an infected person, whom practices poor hygiene.

    Is taking red meat leads to seizure; those who are already having seizure

    If the worm eggs can live on the produce grown with worm egg infected manure it seems that it would be very dangerous to eat imported organic raw produce. In fact this seems to be more likely to cause the brain worms than infected meat since most people cook meat but lots of people eat raw imported veggies.

    This is what food that you should NOT eat if you have epilepsy. What about the foods you SHOULD eat that will help avoid epilepsy and seizures?

    He said "we may want to not eat pork and not eat anything made by anyone who eats pork".
