Do you love to eat Sushi? I do. This story might stop you from chowing down to often.



This is a true case of a Japanese man from Gifu Prefecture who complained incessantly about a persistent headache. Mr. Shota Fujiwara loves his sashimi and sushi very much to the extent of trying to get them as "alive and fresh" as can be for his insatiable appetite.

He developed a severe headache, but for the past three years had put it
off as migraine and stress from work. It was only when he started losing his
Phsyco-motor skills that he sought medical help.

A brain scan and x-ray revealed little, however. But upon closer inspection by a specialist on his scalp, the Doctor noticed small movements beneath his skin. It was then that the Doctor did a local anesthetic to his scalp and
discovered the cause! Tiny tapeworms crawled out!

Major surgery was thus immediately called for and the extent of their infestation was horrific! Remember: tapeworms, roundworms and their eggs are abound in all fish, fresh or saltwater, and can only be killed by thorough cooking and/or freezing the fish to between -4 deg C - 0 degsC.

Parasite in the saltwater fish die when comsumed by human being, but paraiste in the freshwater fish can live in human body.
Some people in Far East eat sashimi from fresh water fish.

i went on a guided crappie trip back on New Years Day on Cedar Creek Lake. The guide was filleting fish and laying the fillets on the cuttingboard. He joked and asked if I wanted a bite.. duh.... He said a couple months earlier he had some asian clients that were eating the fillets as fast as he could get them off the fish..... I dont understand their culture and wont comment- but damn!.... ya aint starving- slow down speed racer and put some fire under it!

Notwithstanding the debunking of the urban legend surrounding the images & articles referred to here , the consumption of fresh water fish in the raw state in sushi/sashimi is VERY risky.
Kil's comments on this thread are entirely correct and should be noted by sushi & sashimi lovers.

Kil, this wrong in fact "Anisakiasis is a human parasitic infection of the gastrointestinal tract caused by the consumption of raw or undercooked seafood containing larvae of the nematode Anisakis simplex." "The areas of highest prevalence are Scandinavia (from cod livers), " Wikipedia.
