Does anybody get his greens from the garden or anywhere outdoors in the wilderness?
How do you tackle the problem of the fox tapeworm (Echinococcus multilocularis)?
I hoped to smash the egg of the tapeworm by juicing them with my Green Life/Star juicer. But the eggs of this tapeworm have a diameter below 0,05 mm and my Greenstar has a distance between the tue of 0,1 mm. Usually doctors recommend all outdoor collected fruits and greens to be washed at 70Ã‚Â°C! At this temperatur the eggs will get destoyed.
Some info on the tapeworm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echinococcus_multi…
It’s extremely dangerous to get one as you may live with for years without any symptoms. If you have symptoms you might well have a more or less big cyst in your liver or in the lungs or possibly anywhere else in the body.
And that’s my dilemma: I’d like to get outdoor green, e.g. nettles or dandelion. BUT I don’t want to get a tapeworm…
