Tapeworms And People
Fifty-seven species of tapeworms live in humans. Six of these species are considered a public health problem because they cause serious diseases. Tapeworms also are dangerous to animals kept by people, such as horses, sheep, cattle, dogs, cats, rabbits, and domestic birds. Tapeworms infect the fish that people eat and reduce production in fish farms.
