Eating sashimi can cause liver parasites in children

In recent years, sashimi has become popular in the coastal areas of China. Although this food is delicious, it is not hygienic. In particular, children have poor resistance and are prone to parasitic diseases. The "culprit" of this parasitic disease is the testosterone chinensis, which is shaped like a sunflower seed and is only 10 to 25 mm long and 3 to 5 mm wide. It can cause biliary fistulas and even biliary cirrhosis, and children are the first victims.

The schistosomiasis live in fresh water. Adults can invade the muscles of freshwater fish and form cystic roundworms. If a person eats sashimi with cysticercosis, the capsule worms will husk in the stomach and invade the liver through the common bile duct. Tubules, a large number of adults plug in the congested bile canal, causing hyperplasia of the bile duct wall, long time and the formation of biliary bile sclerosis.

A small amount of Clonorchis sinensis infection does not have any symptoms. A large amount of nymphs can cause indigestion, epigastric discomfort, hepatomegaly, liver discomfort, and mild jaundice. If you eat sashimi that contains more cysticercus infection at a time, it can cause high fever, jaundice, hepatomegaly and hepatic colic. And will affect the child's development due to chronic malnutrition.
