Doctor Oz aired his show on Parasitic Worms – Tapeworms, Roundworms & Pinworms again today. I’m still shocked by the statistic that 40 Million people in America have pinworms, making it more common than lice. Perhaps I have just been very fortunate, but I have not ever heard of anyone getting tapeworms, pinworms or roundworms. I am glad to be armed with the knowledge of the scotch tape test for pinworms and the reminder to cook fish very well.
Dr Oz also brought on a 4 year old named Lillie who weighs over 80 pounds. Lillie’s personality was absolutely adorable, and when Dr Oz announced that Lillie is pre-diabetic because of her unhealthy diet, my heart broke for Lillie and her family. Here is the 4 Step Family Weight Loss Plan that Dr Oz outlined for Lillie and her family. If Lillie’s family is out there, we would love to hear how she is doing now!
