There’s noni juice and mangosteen juice. Now there’s earthworm juice, recommended as a cure for high blood pressure and other health problems. Dr. Rafael Guerero III, executive director of the Philippine Council for Aquatic and Marine Research and Development (PCAMRD), said there are enzymes in the tissue of the earthworms that can dissolve blood clot.

nothing to worry about it. there are already cultured earthworms around, clean and edible. in this case, earthworms are prepared as a drinking juice. isn't that comfortable with you now?

you are welcome. but i am asking this question to myself, what if all food is gone and only left are the earthworms? would you not eat them? if not you will starve and die. have you thought of it? just asking.

Tin and Copper are also good for your health, but that doesn't mean I'm going to eat a penny, nor a coke can.

There are actually several ways to prepare it. Worms taste like dirt, but you can purge them by soaking them in water overnight. Drying earthworms to reduce their sliminess and stop them from spoiling seems a much more practical solution than turning them into a sour cream dish to serve over rice or spaghetti. Other recipes that might work with earthworms are chili (use prepared earthworms instead of hamburger) and spaghetti (earth worms for ground beef in the sauce). I think for the milk or coffee i prefer to have the worm dried first as mentioned earlier.

I think this is digusting and the doctor saying this is a quack. Its a new way to get attention and even if it was true I don't care thats just nasty.
