did ben franklin have a tapeworm?

The wikipedia article doesn’t mention the tape worm story. It sounds like a myth. A tape worm wouldn’t protect against diseases (unless you meant he could sample all the different foods without feeling full). A tapeworm in your stomach would cause pain and deprive you of essential nutrients, sounds like a stupid thing for a smart president to do. Sources: http://en.wikipedia.
