There is an article which explains that there are numerous ways of getting worms which can invade your brain, including eating pork. This was published in the CNN news.
“(CNN) Once you consume them, they can move throughout your body — your eyes, your tissues and most commonly your brain.
They leave doctors puzzled in their wake as they migrate and settle to feed on the body they’re invading; a classic parasite, but this one can get into your head.”
Brain Worms from eating certain Dangerous Food
Helena Helmby from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine says that there are many types of tapeworm, three of which can infect the brain immediately. She added that there is one particular form of tape worm people should watch out for, that is the pork tape worm.
This parasite is harmful for the human body, it can be infected by the pork species, known as Taenia Solium, in two forms. The first form is teaniasis – an adult worm residing in the intestine. You can get this kind of worm by eating undercooked pork from infected pigs. The second, is the larval form of worm, which enters the nervous system, including the brain, and can results in a condition called neurocysticercosis. You can get this kind of worm through contact with the feces of an infected pig or human.
