"If something is wriggling in fish flesh, Sushi chefs are trained to remove it."

From and article on the nasty things found in seafood in Discover magazine.

"Giant fish tapeworm Diphyllobothrium latum fully grown can measure 10 to 40 feet in human intestine. They are carried by freshwater fish."

"In addition to noxious toxins, marine fish can also harbor worms. Sushi restaurants typically see the most common culprits in marine fish: Anisakid Roundworm larva. These if consumed by humans often burrow into the stomach or small intestine, causing excruciating pain that is alleviated only by meticulous extraction of the larva via endoscope."

While I quite like Sushi, I have actually cut way back on it.

Even so, my father would turn in his grave.

My father was a Veterinarian who frequently was called on to deal with salt water species.

He wouldn't go near Sushi, preached the evils of it to me and essentially told it was dangerous to even think of eating raw fish.

As with many things - he was mostly right.

Y'all are lucky I didn't take a pic of the giant, moving tapeworm that came out of my dog's butt.

Or start a thread about it.
My dog threw one up once when she was a young puppy. After I took her to the vet & she was treated for them she pooped a whole bellyful of dead worms.

That is why I only eat sushi with the cooked stuff. I've NEVER eaten raw fish nor do I have the desire to even try it. Very rare steak is fine (despite me not really digging the spongy texture) but raw fish, na-uh.
