Do Not Eat Raw Fish
Do not eat raw fish as it has a high possibility of being infected by a type of parasitic worm called Clonorchiasis (Chinese liver fluke or Opisthorchiasis). This snail-looking worm may result in human infection if the infected fish are eaten by humans themselves. This infection is scary as it may spread to the bile ducts in the liver and to the gallbladder.
When clonorchiasis enters the human body, it will lead our body to cholangitis, an indicative of the inflammation of any portion of the bile ducts which carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder and intestine. The progress of this cholangitis can lead to pain, jaudice (yellow skin), and fever. In some severe cases, it is a consequence of cirrhosis (chronic liver disease), characterizing anatomically by widespread nodules in the liver combined with fibrosis which might later interfere the blood flow through the liver. This makes the liver having problem to carry out essential functions, such as manufacturing vital nutrients, purrifying the blood and detoxifying harmful substances. The recent clinical reports show that people who like to eat raw fish, have 50% higher possibility to have cirrhosis developed in their early ages.
