Hookworm infection cures asthma and hayfever

This is an account of one man who traveled to Camaroon to deliberately become infected with hookworm because of one of the disease's documented side effects: it cures severe asthma and hayfever.

Hookworm will never take off as an extreme asthma treatment. Instead, the promise lies in isolating the chemical compounds released by the worm that stop asthma and other auto-immune diseases.
