So if you don't eat infected snails, forms or crustaceans you will be fine?

I mean, until you're not.

I'm ok not eating snails, worms, crustaceans, and insisting that all rats wear little diapers to break the "cycle of despair" with the snails.

Seems like a brain-invading worm would have slim pickings in Florida.

You can inadvertently eat a snail ? Who knew.

My brain-invading worm has been singing the soundtrack to "Mamma Mia!" in my ear for the past three days.

Mamma Mia, here I go again....

Now I see.

Brain-invading worms became extinct in places like Washington and Flathead County decades ago.
