In What´s Eating You? Eugene Kaplan recounts the true and harrowing tales of his adventures with parasites, and in the process introduces readers to the intimately interwoven lives of host and parasite.Kaplan has spent his life traveling the globe exploring oceans and jungles, and incidentally acquiring parasites in his gut. Here, he leads listeners on an unforgettable journey into the bizarre yet oddly beautiful world of parasites.In a narrative that is by turns frightening, disgusting, and laugh-out-loud funny, Kaplan describes how drinking contaminated water can cause a three-foot-long worm to burst from your arm; how he ´´gave birth´´ to a parasite the size and thickness of a pencil while working in Israel; why you should never wave a dead snake in front of your privates; and why fleas are attracted to his wife. Kaplan tells stories about leeches feasting on soldiers in Vietnam; sea cucumbers with teeth in their anuses that seem to encourage the entry of symbiotic fish; the habits of parasites that cause dysentery, river blindness, and other horrifying diseases--and much, much more. Along the way, he explains the underlying science, including parasite evolution and host-parasite physiology.Informative, frequently lurid, and hugely entertaining, this audiobook is a must-listen for health-conscious travelers and anyone who has ever wondered if they picked up a tapeworm from that last sushi dinner. 1.

The trichinosis worm is one of nature´s most revolting parasites. Certain types of this tiny worm alter a host´s DNA by injecting a virus which mutates the reproductive system. This forces the host to bear the worm´s young. Typically these worms are never longer than a few millimeters. But guess what? Now there’s a subspecies that´s 30 feet long.When Nora and her team arrive at the island, she expects a routine zoological excursion...but it doesn´t take her long to realize they´re not alone. Are her lurid sexual dreams making her paranoid...or is she being watched? The dead bodies they find are bad enough, but then her own team members begin to disappear, and when they return, they´ve...changed. Indeed, there are other people on the island...along with something else far worse. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andy Mack.
