Go Wormy, Be Happy

[If you tried to access the link before, it’s fixed now. Sorry about that.]

How far would you go to relieve your depression? Would you go to helminth?

Where, or what, you may ask, is helminth?

Candy shaped like a knight’s headgear?

Hardly.

An herb on the banks of the the river Styx?

Good guess, but no.

No, a helminth is a worm. A parasitic worm, to tell you more than you probably wanted to know. Also, perhaps, the next big depression cure.

You think I’m making this up, don’t you? Hah, are you in for a surprise when you read this article! Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

(Actually, I have heard of this before. People have been self-experimenting with them for more than a decade. It’s nice to know the scientific community has finally caught on. Me, I’ve considered zapping my brain with a homemade tDCS unit, but eating parasites? That’s just icky. Then again, ask me in January…).
