Expert opinion on surgically extracted intestinal worms falsely claimed as undigested noodles

Alt News contacted Dr. Ruparel, who is a general surgeon. He stated, “It is definitely not noodles. It can’t be, they are too intact. Once in the stomach, the noodles would have turned into a liquid form due to the gastric juices. These are roundworms that are common in the human digestive system. This video, and other similar ones, have been circulating on social media a lot, but the claim is not true.”

We also contacted Dr Yogesh Harwani, a gastroenterologist at Noble Gastro Hospital, Ahmedabad. “This video shows small intestine obstruction due to worms.

Worms can lead to intestinal obstruction, blood loss and severe abdominal pain,” he said.
