Yet another reason not to eat snail or worms..

You could get infected by swallowing bits of animals that carry the parasite larvae -- just like rats do! So don't eat undercooked or raw snails, slugs, land crabs, shrimp, or frogs. In fact, crazy idea here, maybe skip the escargot entirely if you're in an area with recently reported infections.

What does it do to humans?

Once larvae enter the human bloodstream, they head to the central nervous system.
