Which vegetables should be avoided in neurocysticercosis?
Hello, my sister is 38 years old. She has been recently diagnosed with neurocysticercosis. She was getting headache and generalized weakness for quite a long time. Seizures and headaches are the most common symptoms she was experiencing. She also had lack of attention to people and surroundings. Finally doctor has come to the conclusion that she is suffering from neurocysticercosis. We all are taking care of her and concerned about her diet. I would like to know which vegetables should be avoided in neurocysticercosis. Please comment.
@jaspreet Neurocysticercosis is basically caused due to poor sanitation and eating pork which is not inspected. It is a myth spread by quacks. By a trick of their hand, they show people that they have taken out a tapeworm from the brain, which was caused by eating cabbage. It is a misconception. One should wash vegetables before cooking and one’s hands before eating. If you do not wash vegetables, then whether it is cabbage or potato, it may lead to brain tapeworm. So, it is important to properly wash the vegetables before cooking. Raw and uncooked food should also not be eaten.
