The nature of a bulletin board is that topics do in fact come up again and again - even after considerable time has elapsed. Additionally, if someone responds to a response, it is bound to keep going. If you have checked the box to be notified when a reply is posted, you can go in and "edit" the post so you no longer receive notification.
The information that everyone posts CAN be valuable, so we hesitate to remove posts just because they have run their course.

It's interesting to know that you've seen a lot of birds with these parasites (pokeboater, take notice).

Cook your birds and you can eat them. No sweat. If the infection is really bad, you can still eat them, but you might not want to. If you don't believe me, just do an internet search on "rice breast," and explore it yourself.

Yeah, stomach acids don't do squat to most internal parasites, they're remarkably resilient.

I've seen some in favor of eating these ducks and others opposed (myself included), is there any scientific evidence of human infection?
