Every person shrivels in disgust whenever the subject of parasites is brought up because let’s be honest, there is nothing exciting about the sight of slimy, creepy beasts feeding on unsuspecting victims. And yet, parasites are presumed to live in almost 40% of all living creatures, especially those who are in constant contact with the outside world away from the sanitation of urban environments.
Even though we absolutely hate them, parasites seem to love us very much, although, in all fairness, most of these little buggers are just following their biological needs with no regards to the discomfort they are causing. So if you have the stomach for it, join us for the next few minutes as we talk about the ten most disgusting parasites in the world and the harm they cause.
Those of you who had the misfortune of sleeping in a bed infested with bedbugs will undoubtedly scorn at the very mention of them.

One of the reasons why they are hard to kill is because they only feed on blood, which makes it pretty hard to come up with a substance they would ingest the same way other parasites do.
