Abstract:

Most of us don't even like to think about it but parasites can be found inside and outside of every human body. Some of these perform a vital function in the digestion process but others can do immense harm. This film explores the unknown world of parasites and the human body. From the lactobacillus that we get from eating yogurt, to malaria, our bodies are in contact with parasites on a daily basis.
