A man in Fresno, California removed a 5-foot long tapeworm from his body.

Banh, on the podcast, said the man came into Community Regional Medical Center complaining of bloody diarrhea and asking to be treated for worms.

"I take out a toilet paper roll, and wrapped around it of course is what looks like this giant, long tapeworm", Bahn said on the podcast. The man tells that he used to eat raw sushi every day. This appeared unusual to the doctors because when someone is being treated for tapeworms, the patient suffers from constipation, so having diarrhoea seemed odd.

If you love sushi so much, this story could serve you as a warning.

Apparently, according to the doctor in the emergency room, the man initially thought his intestines were coming out but was relieved to find that the thing he was pulling out was alive.

According to Live Strong, a huge tapeworm infestation could lead to a block in the intestines, bile duct, appendix or pancreatic duct.

The tapeworm didn't have that effect on the Fresno patient, who was a little chubby, Banh said.

When the tapeworm was unrolled on the floor of the emergency room, Banh said that the parasite measured five feet, 6 inches long. The sushi eater, who was glad that it was a tapeworm that was coming out of himself instead of his intestines, said that he will no longer eat his favorite sashimi after the frightful incident.

A quick online search found there has been a well-documented outbreak of Japanese tapeworms in Pacific-caught salmon.

Tapeworms are reportedly found in many types of fish that are not properly flash frozen.

When questioned, he insisted he had not been overseas - and revealed that he ate raw salmon every day, reported MailOnline.

In January 2017, experts with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned that eating raw or undercooked fish heightens the risk of developing an infection from parasites, including Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense, or the Japanese broad tapeworm. But in exceptional cases the infection can cause complications including vitamin B12 deficiency, intestinal obstruction and gall bladder disease. Bahn gave him an anthelmintic, which is a single-treatment medication to treat tapeworms in both humans and dogs.
