Have you ever passed a stool so long and thin you called it spaghetti poo? Well, I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news. First, the bad news: that was really a parasite known as Ascaris lumbricoides. The good news is this roundworm rarely causes nutritional deficiencies in its host. Sometimes up to a foot long, it likely spent a few peaceful years in your small intestine before its exit. Good riddance, and join the club — as many as 25% of us have shared your experience.
