In a viral Facebook Video posted by Mariz Cabalo, she demonstrated that there was a worm or 'linta' lurking inside the stalk of the said vegetable. Raising awareness to the netizens as to the favorite 'Kangkong.'

Since Kangkong grows anywhere and everywhere, without any supervision or much care. It poses a health risk especially when not thoroughly cleaned before cooking them.




Most people would simply plunge the Kangkong leaves in a pot of boiling water 'blanching' and eat it afterward thinking that the bacteria or dirt has been disinfected by the boiling water. However, this cooking method is actually dangerous.

If uncooked well, leaves can foster a large parasitic intestinal fluke called 'Fasciolopsis buski' in larval cysts form. This parasite when ingested might cause indigestion, allergic reactions and even death.

Be careful of what you eat! That healthy meal may not be too healthy at all. In preparing the meal, thoroughly clean the ingredients to be used and make sure there are no parasites or hidden worms inside.
