What is a parasite?
People can be infected with many kinds of parasites. We will focus on only one kind of parasite, which is Cryptosporidium parvum.
Cryptosporidium is a parasite that lives inside our bodies and is usually passed from a pregnant woman to her baby. When a baby is born, the mother will have parasites on her placenta, the umbilical cord and her womb. The parasite is not passed from person to person, but is generally passed between mothers and their babies during pregnancy. The baby grows in the mother's body, and in the womb, it also has parasites. Sometimes the parasite is also passed from the mother to her baby through the placenta.
The parasites in the child are called Cryptosporidium, as the infection in the mother may look similar to an egg-white egg. These eggs are also called egg white, egg blue, egg yellow and egg pink. When the eggs are exposed to the mother's blood, they become a type of parasite called round worms. If the parasite passes to the baby in the placenta, the parasite is called cystinocytosis or placenta cystinosis. People who buy these products are not doing anything that should cause a baby to become infected with the parasite.
