You may find a most poetic rhetoric in
p79, 1997 October Vol.192 No.4 
of National Geography,
 ' official journal of the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY'
WASHINGTON, D.C


	"ENEMY WITHIN, the broad fish tapeworm may grow to 35 feet and live ten
	years inside a persons's intestine. 

	Each mature segment comes complete with male and female
	sex organs resembling Japanese characters.

	A yen for raw fish increases the risk of infection."

            		            by JENNIFER ACKERMAN

I am now amazed with the incredible biological insight that our ancestors
showed more than thousand years ago.
