Sushi is now becoming an increasingly popular food among people. However, not all can prepare it in the right way. Improper Sushi preparation not just degrades its taste but also affects health of people. The same thing is applicable for rolls made of salmon skin or tuna. Inquiring about the preparation method is of utmost importance before you eat, as the ones, which are not properly cooked can lead to serious health consequences.

You may really feel awful to learn that a Chinese man once experienced severe digestive disorder along with itchy skin after having Sashimi. His condition was even worse when he learned that the Sushimi he ate was responsible for all this as it was affected with parasitic germs. Under-cooked sushi often contains worms named dipyllobotrium, which remains alive even after you eat them and cause Diphyllobothriasis.

If you ever get the following symptoms after eating sushi, the chances are high that you have been affected by diphyllobothrium:

  • Jaundice
  • Malnutrition
  • Insomnia
  • Dizziness
  • Discomfort or pain in the abdominal area
  • Diarrhea
  • Weakness

In some cases, the worms are hard to detect and may even affect your brain functionality, leading to fatal consequences. Therefore, it is better to know the cooking procedure and avoid the ones, which are under cooked. Some rare cases also report worm infections even in well-cooked foods.
