Wal-Mart expanding in-store health clinics The retailer plans to roll out 400 clinics at its stores that will be jointly branded with local medical groups.

Wal-Mart Stores will open its first in-store medical clinics under its own brand name after leasing space in dozens of stores to outside companies that operate the quick-service health stops.

The world's largest retailer said last week it will open The Clinic at Wal-Mart as a joint venture with local hospital systems in Atlanta, Dallas and Little Rock, Ark., starting in April.

Wal-Mart is among several supermarket and drugstore chains that in the past couple of years have begun opening store-based health clinics, which are staffed mostly by nurse practitioners or physician assistants and offer quick service for routine conditions from colds and bladder infections to sunburns.

About 7% of Americans have tried a clinic at least once, according to an estimate by the Convenient Care Association, an industry trade group formed in 2006.

I am a random watcher of Oprah, and a couple weeks ago she had a doctor person on the show talking about tapeworms. He even pulled one out of a jar and had Oprah hold it up so that the viewers could see its length. He described one of the symptoms of tapeworms as drastic weight loss as the tapeworm consumes food energy from the human host. Other than the ewwww! factor this wasn’t so weird but I was disturbed by Oprah’s reaction. A rush of emotions crossed her face when he said this but the dominant one was interest. She did not ask him whether people inflicted themselves with tapeworms to lose weight but it was inferred. I hadn’t really thought that people could/would/should go to such extremes but according to Diet Blog this indeed had been a weight loss cure in the early 1900’s. The image above is actual advertising for sanitized tapeworms.

Tape Worm Skinny, OK who has tried this, sounds great! What the hell is the sanitized tape worm diet? Sanitized tape worms made it's debut about 100 yrs ago.It's the act of placing a parasites inside the body in the effort to lose weight. The parasite comes in a jar with directions to swallow the easy to swallow worm that nest in the gut and feed on digested food, causing weight loss.

What will a tape worm do? Tapeworms surprisingly cause few physical problems for the host. They attach to the intestinal wall where they feed.

Celebrity host? There were rumors that Maria Callas, the opera singer, swallowed a tapeworm to lose almost 80 lbs. Guest model claudia schiffer was rumored to have used tape worms too.

Can tapeworms cause weight loss? The parasite absorbs some of your digested food but not enough to make you hungry. The worm won't starve you, but irritation of your intestines can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, reduced appetite, and weight loss.

What are the bad side effects? Pork tapeworms cause serious complications when their eggs cause cysts in the liver, lungs or brain.

How can you become infected? Easy. Parasites are in comtaminated water, undercooked meats, improperly washed fruits/vegetables or can be transmitted by infected pets or people. You can also go back in time about a 100 years and have one sent to you lol!

A few years ago there was a company who put out sure-fire diet pills, guaranteed to lose weight in no time. People began to take these pills, and in no time the people were losing weight. After a few weeks these people began to lose too much weight. So the government investigated. They opened the pills and found the head of a tapeworm. Tapeworms are hard to get rid of so they had the person starve himself for days. Then they set a bowl of hot milk in front of the person who had to keep his or her mouth open. After a while the tapeworm began to come up his or her throat for the the milk. The worms would keep moving up until it completely left the human host.

It's a great idea for simple problems. So long as simple problems are recognized as simple problems and simply treated, all is well. Incidentally, on average every visit generates a prescription that the host store is happy to fill.
