Gross Facts No 7


Good morning world, I am feeling pretty ok this morning, I slept pretty well.

Yesterday Tim & I search everywhere for Leo's mobile phone and couldn't find it, well this morning I found it sitting on top of his laptop next to the front door, if it was a snake it would jumped up and bit me, as the saying goes.

Anyway being Tuesday means gross facts day so here we go with some gross facts.

The average human body carries between 1 and 2.5kg of parasitic bacteria

The largest parasitic worm ever found was 8.5metres long, it was found living in a female sperm whale's womb

A tapeworm can live inside a human gut for up to 20 years

Tiny white pinworms live in your gut, but move to your bottom to lay eggs

Parasitic worm eggs get into soil through animal droppings

There can be thousands of parasitic worm eggs in one handful of soil

I'm trying to eat dinner, so I have nothing on worms. Nobody called his phone to see where it might ring?

Not nice facts.
Sometimes things we are looking for are right in front of us :) it's happened to me many times.

We sometimes misplaced our hand phone too. We used another phone to call the missing phone's number and we find our phone easily that way. Talking about gut worms, I am glad I just finished dinner. Lol!

Dear Jo-Anne, when I was a young child back in the late 1930s and early 1940s worms were very common in your children. I don't know if that's true now. Peace.
