About Monsters Inside Me: Animal Planet

"In North America, parasitic infections are somewhat rare; regardless, they can happen to anyone," says biologist/zoologist Dan Riskin, host of MONSTERS INSIDE ME. "Parasites are in the food we eat, in the water we swim and on the ground we walk," continues Riskin. "They are lurking in the shadows, waiting for just the right moment to take a host."
