In Germany may allow to treat the disease parasitic worms Source:

According to some research (which the scientific community agrees), some diseases like allergies, type I diabetes, and several autoimmune processes can arise from the fact that the human body from childhood «well protected» from the environment and have little contact with harmful microorganisms. In this regard, according to the editors of the magazine New Scientist, the German government may consider the request of one of the Thai pharmaceutical companies on the sale of eggs of the parasitic nematode Trichuris suis as treatment and prevention.

Trichuris suis infects the intestines of pigs and some other animals. These parasitic worms, as they say representatives of pharmaceutical companies represent «the Golden mean» – they are able to penetrate the human intestine and live there for a few days, suppressing the work of an overly active immune system, but can not gain a foothold there and die fairly quickly after the release of the eggs.

Some biologists are confident that, for example, the Allergy develops from the fact that people live in «sterile» conditions with the absence of parasites. Since childhood, the immune system does not receive enough information to distinguish between harmful microorganisms from dust and pollen, which can lead to the development of autoimmune processes.

It is Worth noting that such statements were not left without attention, and in 2016, there have been a number of experiments involving parasites Trichuris suis. Experiments showed that the addition of eggs in food does not cause side effects, but it also does not cause any positive change. Therefore, serious scientific community refers to such treatments with skepticism. However, the absence of side effects, according to New Scientist, is the main criterion for the approval of additives of this kind, and can make use of manufacturers. As the doctor noted Peter Hotez of Baylor College in the United States,

«In my opinion, cerveceria belongs to the same category of pseudo-scientific, almost religious therapies, such as «health» autism substances that remove heavy metals from the body. Approval of the sale of such products in Germany would be extremely stupid».

By the way, many scientists also have a negative attitude to the decision of the German authorities, stating that self-medication with parasitic worms can cause serious side effects, and the effects of the worms themselves on the body are still not well understood.
