Not Safe for Lunch: Attack of the Parasites

Image credit: 

I just discovered this in the dusty depths of my YouTube account -- a very strange video I made with mental_floss about three years ago. Not a lot of people saw it, so I thought it might be fun to pull out of obscurity for a day. It's a primer on a few of the odder and more gruesome types of parasites in the world, but but rather than gross footage of people infected with parasites, it's composed entirely of footage from old B-movies. (Thanks, Archive.org!) To be fair, there are still a couple of stomach-turning shots, but it's good for a laugh and actually contains a fair number of interesting facts about real-life parasites. Not safe for lunch!
