These days, we're faced with the atrocious fear of viruses like Ebola because we've seen it cross our borders. But there's more than Ebola out there. Prepare to be shocked, disgusted and afraid... very, very afraid. An organism could be inside you, feeding on you or infecting you at this very moment! A parasitic, bacterial, viral or fungal attack is like a tumultuous roller coaster within the body that can take terrifying - sometimes deadly - twists and turns. Host/biologist Dan Riskin provides scientific perspective throughout this 10-part series that vividly recounts the stories of people tormented by sinister creatures that have invaded their bodies.
Parasitic worms eat the brain of an 11-month-old; a war veteran has a parasite that has lived in him for the past 36 years; a man has a parasite living in his brain.
A group of students return from a tropical vacation only to discover there are worms inside their brains; a water-borne parasite causes the worst parasitic outbreak in U.S. history; a man and several others have a parasite that isn't endemic to their state.
A man has something growing in his head; a chemical worker discovers parasites in his lungs; a woman is horrified to find she picked up some stowaways from a hotel.
A parasite eats away at a teenage girl's eyeball; a man picks up a parasite as a young child, but only 60 years later does it become a problem; a runner is attacked by a tick-borne parasite.
A four-year-old boy has parasites invading his eye; a day at the lake turns into a nightmare when a ruthless brain-eating monster attacks the brain of a young boy; a man travels to Africa and picks up a stowaway that attacks his blood.
A woman battles an invincible brain-eating monster; a farmer does battle with a parasite that cannot be killed; a banker is infected with the deadliest parasite on the planet.
