Over 60 million Vietnamese people have parasitic worms in their bodies

A government report on food hygiene and safety said that many vegetables and fruits contain pesticides and chemicals, meats and meat products contain bacteria and over 60 million Vietnamese people have parasitic worms in their bodies.

Random tests of fruits and vegetables in Hanoi and Vinh Phuc province in the north, Tien Giang province and HCM City in the south in April 2008 revealed 20 of 154 vegetable samples and three of 60 fruit samples containing pesticides in excess of the permitted level.

72 out of 76 vegetable samples were infected with coliform bacterium, 40 E.coli bacterium and six salmonella, all exceeding the permitted thresholds.

If the CIA Factbook is correct about Vietnam's population numbers, that means approximately 70% of people in the country are infected with parasitic worms. Wow!
