Sushi Lovers, Beware: Tapeworm Now Found in U.S. Salmon THURSDAY, Jan. 12, 2017 (HealthDay News) In bad news for sushi lovers, scientists have confirmed that a tapeworm known to infect salmon from the Asian Pacific is also present in fish from U.S. waters.

Warning: Tapeworm Found in U.S. Salmon, Sushi Lovers Be Careful. The Journal of Clinical Microbiology has published a study which revealed a disturbing fact that around 20 million people are affected by tapeworms. Unfortunately, Diphyllobothrium latum or Japanese broad tapeworm has reached America from the Asian Pacific. A recently published study in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases says wild caught Alaskan salmon may harbor a species of tapeworm previously known to infect only Asian fish.

Researchers warn that based on their findings, any salmon caught along the North American Pacific coast may have the parasite. The concern is that if you eat the fish undercooked or raw, you could. HealthDay Reporter THURSDAY, Jan.

Salmon has been the cause of the transmission of this parasite in Japan (D. nihonkaiense) and the west coast of the United States where sushi has been prepared with infected salmon.30 Eating raw, insufficiently cooked, or lightly pickled fish or fresh roe can transmit infection.

Humans acquire the parasite in its larval stage by eating undercooked or raw fish (e.g., sushi, ceviche), and therefore, the condition predominates in cultures where uncooked fish is consumed.

Some of the species preying on mesopelagic fish such as tuna and swordfish (Scott and Tibbo, 1968; Varela et al., 2013) are commercially important food sources and thus toxins and microplastics transferred to these species may also pose a danger to human health.

  • Great video! I glad I watched this.I heard that deep frying fish helps to kill many things in fish. Can you please do a video on BACON and any dangers with that. Hopefully me commenting first will help. P.S. I miss you at the CO-OP Later.

  • It’s okay to eat raw sushi but it has to be treated the right way before serving. Restaurants freez the fish and it makes the parasites die. But this guy might of made his own sushi.

  • These guys are fucking idiots. Shows cognitive dissonance is high even in doctors who have a lot of school. Fish have parasites. You can’t see the eggs and the “fancy” place you eat at doesn’t know either. What the fuck are these guys on?

  • Tapeworms comes mostly from raw food, so prevent eating any raw food. But if you really want to eat some, try to check it throughly before consuming them.

  • I haven’t eaten sushi before until today, I’m now 12 years old… Thanks and praise be to God I have watched this news and I’m still breathing. I really wanted to try sushi.

  • since you have a lack of knowledge about warms, here is the deal:
    you don’t get warms from any fish, cooked or not
    you get warms from meet that wasn’t cooked to well done.
    there is no chemicals that will give you warms

  • Camera guy is sooooo annoying. To be so affiliated with sushi & speak so much about it like he knows what hes talking about yet NEVER KNOWING WHAT HES TALKING ABOUT. Sushi grade fish is ALL supposed to be flash frozen anyway to kill ALL parasites.
    There can be parasites even when you cant see them hence you are supposed to freeze ALL the fish you plan on eating raw. He’s too busy echoing old wives tales & flapping his gums half the time to even learn THE BASICS about sushi with a master chef before him.
    Even when they went & caught a fresh bluefin from the sea & ate it that day, they stated how it tasted “TOO FRESH” & how it would taste better if it were aged a few days. These are points that go right over camera guy’s head because he still lives in the land of child like wonder void of understanding.
    Hes like the fools who complained about MSG decades ago forcing most asian cuisine to remove it from much of their cuisine completely IGNORANT of the FACT that MSG is NATURAL & can be found in MANY of the western basic foods we eat daily.
    However MSG sounds like a chemical x man-made concoction so “it must be bad & removed” so says the fool…smh.
    Meanwhile we glob large amounts of bleached refined white table salt on our food oblivious of the fact that such salt has ingredients because ITS MAN-MADE & actually contains traces of sand & glass ALSO BLEACHED white hence the modern old wives tale that salt is bad for you(& of course it is when you are using IMITATION MAN-MADE SALT w/ refined bleached glass in it).
    Then you have people just as dull as camera guy who will then “raise the standard” by pushing “sea salt” which means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING concerning the quality of the salt when fact is most ALL SALT we harvest comes from the sea hence the statement is free to be abused & is used to sell more MAN-MADE refined bleached salt opposed to healthy alternatives like pink Himalayan salt.
    Ughhh…I just ranted again…let me stop watching this channel before my stress goes up.

  • Sushi is garbage anyways. Most overrated food I’ve ever seen. Nothing beats mediterranean food. Turkish, arabic, southern Europe food.

  • This show is so dumb, btw your probably more likely to get worms from american pork, Japan has far superior food hygiene than the US

  • Oysters can be full of poison.

    If you pick them from the docks at low tide so its easy to get those from that location. Please dont because there are so many ships which pollute the harbor water. That harbor water is full of pollution so those oysters are poisonous.

    Really dangerous.

    But if you go walk down the beach far away like 5 to 10 miles from the harbor. Then those stuck on rocks are good ones. Ok you wont find them
    as easy as on the docks but you wont get a high dose of whatever poison.

  • so fresh fish is safe?
    no, the fresher the fish, the fresher the parasite.
    I would never risk eating sushi when there’s a million other foods to eat, and even that can be questionable.
    So I stick to fruits and salads..yummmm

  • ah… flown in fresh are the ones you have to be worried about. If you really want shusi and want it safe then below 20 degrees frozen for full 24 hours will solve you from Anisakis issues. You have to remember it’s quite common in Japan at certain percentage this happens always. So, you wanna be safe then just fully cook above 60 and eat fusion or vege style.

  • #1:the man..still can
    Eat Sushi(vegetarian
    rolls only!)But NOT
    RawFishRolls..as for me
    I enjoy eating Sushi..just
    NOT RAW FISH ROLLS..
    ..So disgusting.

  • WTF is wrong with all these old comments saying that it’s not that gross? YES IT IS! It’s visually disgusting, but apparently these morons don’t realize what it would do to their bodies if they accidentally got served that fish. I would assume that only sushi/fish lovers would watch this channel? You are still hungry after watching that shit?

  • Jeezuz… these guys are Emmy award winning?! As someone posted several months back, ‘fresh’ is what gets you the parasites. Fish has to be frozen under a certain temperature for at least 15 hours to kill the parasite.

  • Wrong, sushi is also vegetarian and made with cooked fish.
    I go to a traditional sushi restaurant and always get grilled salmon hand rolls and Inari sushithat is a sweetened fried bean curd.
    Also sushi with gourd and cooked eggs.

  • People have been eating sushi for years without getting this problem. I really think it depends on the supplier the sushi places gets their fish from.. a lot of sushi places buy from manufacturers who farm their own fish, most fish caught from the wild have worms and gross shit. Do your research before you believe fake shows like this who will lie to get your views.

  • Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm suuuuuuuuuuuuuhuuuuhshhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

  • Im glad i don’t watch these guys anymore. Instead of encouraging people to at least eat cooked food to be safe from parasites that live and feed inside you, they just tell you, be careful. I really feel sorry for people.


  • this pretty lady with brown skin…
    she should NOT use 2 high heels soles shoes on her foot…
    better for her to use 2 flat heels soles shoes

  • what I read in google is that almost all wild fish have parasites in them.. According to the description, a lot of places still serve the clean fish parts and cut off the infected parts, but I wonder if those clean parts are also infected with the eggs of the parasites? which in turn will grow in our intestine after we eat them? if that’s the case then shouldn’t we only eat cooked fish?
