A faculty member of the University of Queensland wrote this report regarding the outbreak of a tapeworm in West Papua and its effects on the indigenous peoples of the region. Headings of paper include, from pig to human: the worm-seed cycle, seven meters of death, West Papua’s first worm epidemic, “a gift” of biological warfare, the spread of cysticercosis, and repelling the hidden seed.
