    Default Dog Owners with Kids

    Just wondering....how often do you worm your kids?

    We are having a worming w/end this w/end...LOL
    The pets are all due, so I thought I had better do us humans also....along with cutting finger nails, washing hair and washing the bed sheets.
    I try to do us every 6 months.

    Our boys are usually wormed every six months. They are overdue at the moment but Mr. 6 recently had some blood work done for another condition and this also indicated he is not in need of worming again just yet.

    Did anyone see a doco series on the ABC a year or so ago about parasites? In one episode health workers visited an isolated community in a third world country where the children were riddled with intestinal worms. The children were put on an intensive worming program and medication was left to continue treatment at regular intervals. When the health workers returned a few years later intestinal worms were under control but there had been a lot of new cases of childhood asthma, a condition virtually unknown in the area before the children were wormed.

    I found the program really interesting and have wondered about it ever since. Did the medication used to eliminate the worms cause the asthma? Did the presence of the worms actually help keep the asthma at bay prior to treatment? Obviously a heavy infestation of intestinal worms is not good but could a small population actually be of help to the body?

    I didn't see it but it does raise some interesting thoughts DH . I wonder was any further testing etc carried out on the findings .
