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, the main brain one.

Humans 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 form, which enters the nervous system, including the brain, and can result in a condition called neurocysticercosis. You can get this kind of worm through contact with the feces of an infected pig or human.

When I got my certification, one of the things I have learned was that pork and shellfish are the hardest to digest. When I got asked by people for diet recommendations, I always mention that.
