You are the first to comment. Second to clap, for my most viewed article ever. Depressing really. In any event, I can’t say for certain the effects of any of these treatments in terms of parasites but they would most likely due a number on your intestinal bacterial flora, which would result in significant discomfort and possibly set one up for a multitude of other problems. As to the nicotine treatment, many livestock are ruminants and as such have a very differently structured digestive system. Cattle for instance have a four chambered stomach. The way they digest things is very different from people so I would not put too much stock in any treatment that is safe and effective for them being the same in the case of humans. Definitely do not try the kerosene one, do not try it, lol!
