What is a Human Parasite?
Humans frequently pick up parasites from their dogs and cats.

We have been under the delusion that parasites are only a problem in developing countries or the tropics. Recent medical research, however, suggests three out of five North Americans will be infected by parasites at some point in their lives.' Living off the human body, these tiny organisms can contribute to a variety of acute and chronic illnesses, often going undetected, reproducing themselves year after year, technically, any organism that lives off another host organism can be defined as "parasitic." However, the term "parasite" refers specifically to those protozoa (single-cell organisms), anthropods (insects) and worms that invade and feed off host organisms, often causing harm. Illness can result when disease-promoting parasites, which frequently contaminate food and water supplies, are ingested. Parasites can also infest the skin, as with scabies and lice, or can enter the bloodstream through insect bites, as with malaria and yellow fever parasites. They can deplete the body of essential nutrients, taxing and overwhelming the immune system. In North America, the most common human parasites, apart from head lice, are the microscopic protozoa! Variety, which can be transmitted by air, food, water, insects, animals or other people. These tiny parasites include:
Giardia lamblia - a virulent form found in contaminated lakes, streams and oceans is a common cause of travellers' diarrhea.
Entamovba oisiolyiica - causes dysentery and may injure the liver and lungs.
Blastocystic bominis - increasingly linked to acute and chronic illness.
Dientamoeba fragilis - associated with diarrhea, abdominal pains, anal pruritis (intense itching sensation of the anus) and loose stools.
Cryptosporidium - currently the leading cause of waterborne illness in North America.' It has been found in 80 percent of surface water samples and 28 percent of drinking water samples.
