How do we get parasites?

There are various ways to become infected with parasites. Coming into contact with infected feces through contaminated dirt, water, or food is one possibility. Poor hygiene, poor sanitation (such as improper cleaning and/or cooking food or dirty water), touching infected animals, and having a weakened immune system are also ways to become infected. Once you are infected, it’s easy to pass them on to other people.
