So one of the necessary components of veterinary accreditation is going through the EEDA/IAT certification for emerging and exotic diseases. The tests, like any other certification test, have the occasional dumb Q&A, but this one just takes the cake, and should be shared with trad-lovers out there. You can't say nobody warned you...

"A foreign animal disease could enter the United States on/in:
Choose one answer.
a. A ham sandwich
b. A traveler's clothing
c. An infected human traveler
d. All of the above "

Noooooooooooooo!


Oh, wait.
Does that mean if I use only domestic ham sandwiches I'm protecting the country?

Ham sandwiches are all fun and games until someone gets neurocisticercosis!

Technically, all you'd get from eating T. solium via a ham sandwich is a tapeworm. You get neurocysticercosis from eating things that have pig shit on them. Although I suppose if you ate infected meat, then got your own shit on your hands and ate another ham sandwich, you could get it that way...
