Summary
Estimated to infect about one-fifth of the world's population, worm parasites are especially destructive in poor, rural areas of the developing world. This program focuses on the hookworm, the stealthiest and most resilient of the helminth, or worm, varieties. Examining the insidious methods by which hookworm parasites enter the human body, the video shows how they endanger their hosts and what medical science is doing to combat the spread of infestation-with special attention to young children and pregnant women, for whom hookworms are particularly dangerous. Commentary from renowned parasitologist Dr. Peter Hotez emphasizes key medical concepts
