Worms that are collected from cattle infected from a known source, cysts that have been activated, identified microscopically, and then
treated with UV and antimicrobial agents have a risk profile similar to ingesting uncooked beef.
Once ingested the worm attaches in the intestinal tract and absorbs nutrients from the food you eat. Keep in mind the net loss of
calories will be modest even in the most responsive of individuals, and that the worm cannot improve a bad diet, address overeating or
compensate for a lack of physical exercise. This is not to completely diminish the effectiveness of T. saginata as a weight loss
supplement. Just keep its role in perspective.

Side Effects and Warnings Beef Tapeworm
Most individuals are either asymptomatic or have mild-to-moderate complaints. Common symptoms include loss of appetite or feeling
of fullness, increased appetite, abdominal pain, weakness, headache, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting and spontaneous
emergence of proglottids from the anal sphincter. A mild eosinophilia of 5-15% may occur in 5-45% of patients. There are rare reports
of intestinal perforation in T. saginata infection. People with severely weakened immune systems (due to disease or drugs like cancer
chemotherapy and organ transplant immunosuppressants) may develop serious infections or bacteria in the blood from taking T.
saginata. Therefore, T. Saginata should be avoided in such individuals. People with intestinal damage or recent bowel surgery should
avoid taking T. saginata. When T. Saginata becomes sexually mature the gravid proglottids will break off and migrate out the digestive
tract. These proglottids are motile and can lodge in the common bile duct, pancreatic duct or the appendix. Blockage of any can result in
intense abdominal pain and is life threatening. Intestinal obstruction is a rare complication.
There is not enough scientific study available to establish safety during pregnancy. Therefore, pregnant women should not use T.
saginata. T. saginata should not be used during breastfeeding, due to possible risks to the mother and child.
