Every year 800-1000 child become blind from parasites that are common to every dog or cat. Most of the time they DON'T get the infection from their family pet, but why take the chance?
A new study put out by the CDC demonstrated that 14% of the population is infected with Roundworms (toxocara).
That means if you are talking to a group of 7 people, one of them has worm. (Well, if none of them have worms, that means it's YOU)
I'm going to go wash my hands......
