Yes dear Katinka von K..... they were sold like candy. Let me tell you something, just between you and me, I once read this, I dont don't if it's true or not. Once a pudgy soprano, Maria Callas became a glamorous opera star after losing weight because she ate a tapeworm - on purpose, some say. (Tapeworms, which live inside the intestines and eat food before you digest it, can cause weight loss - but experts strongly recommend against the practice. If a tapeworm leaves the intestine, it can cause seizures, fever, and cystic lumps. So that's a big no, no needless to say) Look Katinka Callas before tapeworm Callas after tapeworm I am a slim person, but even if i wasn't i would never, never swallow a tapeworm Katinka!
