I warn you, this is really gross. But you're going to look anyway, aren't you?
An Irish surgeon.
BUT, he did die when he was 88, so maybe it was all the maggots.
"Risk of enteric myiasis: intestinal larval infection. Piophila casei larvae can pass through the stomach alive (human stomach acids do not usually kill them) and take up residency for some period of time in the intestines, where they can cause serious lesions as they attempt to bore through the intestinal walls. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and bloody diarrhea"
you wouldn't be saying that when you see your intenstines in the toilet bowl.
"nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and bloody diarrhea", wouldn't it?
Actually, no it wouldn't :(((
Larvae taking up residence in your intestines makes my innards feel sad. Sad and queasy.
