The cost of a tapeworm?

For one man, it could be $100,000.

Though rare, tapeworm infection isn't really a laughing matter. If you're particularly scared about contracting such a disease, you'll need to lay off the sushi ... or baring that, you'll have to watch your poop closely and scan it for proglottids, which are the sections which break off and are excreted and carry up to a million eggs, which of course seek to start the tapeworm "circle of life" all over again.
