There is a contradiction in the first block of text: it is stated that more than 30 species are reported to infect animals and humans, while in the next sentence it is claimed that only around 10 have been known to infect humans. I ask of anybody who knows about the subject to correct this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:35, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
Adding to Paragonimiasis article with bibliography
With the existing article, I wanted the audience to be more aware there are more than 30 different species of the parasite with more than 10 species that are human pathogens. Only 8 bring about serious infections in humans. The most common being 4 species will be listed and as their names imply, their regions. I also wanted to add who is most susceptible to the disease and the first human case was seen. Here are the two sources I used to find this information: Bibliography: "Parasites - Paragonimiasis (also Known as Paragonimus Infection)."Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 10 Jan. 2013. Web. 13 Oct. 2016. Rosenbaum, Seth D. "Paragonimiasis." Drugs and Diseases. Medscape, 2016.
