Weight-obsessed mom fed her daughter tapeworms

Pageant mom fed her teenager daughter TAPEWORMS so she could lose weight

Girl left screaming in agony over a toilet bowl writhing with the parasites

A girl who was suffering from agonizing stomach pains in hospital was discovered to be riddled with tapeworms, after her mother had made her eat them to lose weight before a beauty pageant.

A Florida nurse has recalled the horrifying moment a teenage girl’s stomachache was revealed to be a tapeworm infestation. Maricar Cabral-Osori told how she admitted the girl to the ER with severe stomach cramps and initially suspected she was pregnant, until an ultrasound showed no baby.

It was instead something seen elsewhere in her body which raised eyebrows.

“Something was in her intestines,” said Cabral-Osorio

Unfortunately for the girl, it wasn’t the tests that revealed the cause for her growing discomfort, but a trip to the bathroom. However, the cause of the pain became clear when the nurse later found the teenager screaming over a toilet bowl full of tapeworms.

“It was so gross and she had pooped all these tapeworms. There were a couple that were very long and wiggling around trying to get out of the toilet bowl,” she said. “We were wondering, how did she get those tape worms? And then we saw the mother turn white.”

Ms Cabral-Osori said the girl’s mother, ‘who turned white’, admitted buying tapeworm eggs in Mexico and feeding them to her daughter. The eggs hatched after the girl ingested them.

She said:

‘The mom was apologizing to the girl.

‘She’s like, ”I’m so sorry. You know, I just did it to make you a little skinnier. You needed some help before we went on to the pageant”,’ Gawker reported.

Ms Cabrai-Osori said the teenager had passed the tapeworms, some of which were ‘very long and trying to get out of the toilet bowl’.

It is not known whether the mother faced criminal charges as a result of her actions or not.

Tapeoworms have been used for nearly 100 years to increase weight-loss, but doctors have warned the practice is extremely dangerous.

Last year Dr Patricia Quinlisk, Medical Director of the Lowa Department of Health, wrote: ‘Ingesting tapeworms is extremely risky and can cause a wide range of unstable side effects, including rare deaths.

‘Those desiring to lose weight are advised to stick with proven weight loss methods- consuming fewer calories and increasing physical activity.’

Tapeworms attach themselves to the intestinal wall of its host and then absorb nutrients and calories. Certain tapeworms can grow up to 30 feet long and can live within a host for up to 20 years.

Most people affected with tapeworms have no symptoms, while others may experience abdominal pain, nausea, bloating, diarrhea, weakness, loss of appetite, weight loss, vitamin deficiencies and malnutrition.
