The weather is getting colder and colder. We all fall in love with eating hot pot. Our expectant mother is also greedy. When people eat hot pot, they are used to put the fresh and tender meat slices into the boiling soup and eat them with a little heat. This short heating can not kill the Toxoplasma gondii larvae in the cells of the meat slices. After eating, the larvae can pass through the intestinal wall and spread to the whole body with the blood.
Toxoplasma gondii larvae are often invisible to the naked eye in muscle cells. When pregnant women are infected, there is no obvious discomfort, or only symptoms similar to cold, but the larvae can be transmitted to the fetus through the placenta. In severe cases, miscarriage and stillbirth may occur, or malformations such as microcephalus, macrocephalia (hydrocephalus) or anencephaly may occur due to affecting the development of fetal brain.
