There are a group of parasites extremely disgusting and mean. Humanity declared war on them.

Do I have to worry now because it's scary because for a long time I drank water form the tap putting in a plastic bottle for some years and I never replaced the bottle and am still fine but it am worried
Can I just say something? And before all you angry commenters say what an idiot I am, just listen to me for a moment.
Try thinking about the other side of the topic of this video for a minute, and think about what this is about. We’re killing these parasites, right, because of what they do and how disgusting they are. But we’re also killing these creatures because of how they evolved. Think about it. This is the way they evolved, and that’s not their fault. *And I’m not saying I want any of these parasites in me, because believe me, I don’t.* But it’s about the same as killing all dogs on earth because they chase deer. Would you do agree with that? It’s how they live, and they didn’t choose that. And parasites can only survive like this. They have much more trouble adapting to things because they require hosts to live at all, unlike most species, some of which can just get up and move if their habitat is ruined. So, basically, we’re killing these creatures just because they exist, which is sort of unfair, in a way. Nature is complicated and beautiful, but not all of it is cute and friendly. Animals do what they must to live, and we’re just killing them for it. We’re killing them because they live.
And let me add this. Some of the more reasonable of you people would say; “yea, maybe I see your point. Maybe they have some purpose on Earth, in some food web.” Well, maybe life doesn’t NEED a purpose. Maybe things aren’t here for any particular reason. Maybe their just here BECAUSE their here. They just evolved, and here they are. No population control, no environmental balance. Maybe these creatures saw an opportunity in parasitism, and went for it, and here they are. Maybe life doesn’t need a REASON. Would you like to think your just here to cause pollution and drive species extinct? Actually, maybe you people do. That’s what this video’s about, after all. Driving species to extinction.
And to everyone who doesn’t know that humans are animals, who think we’re something ‘greater’, well. I always tell people that we are animals, but I’m actually starting to believe we’re not. We’re something worse. Something totally ready to kill millions of living things because they exist. Something fine with trashing this beautiful planet, the only planet of life we know of, with no mind of what else is on it, and what was here first. Never fully understanding what every life is worth. Your sad when a human dies, maybe you can spare at least a thought for that dead squirrel on the side of the road. But NO. It’s forgotten within mere moments as a worthless life that no one ever cared about anyway. We don’t know if they can think like us, so their below us. So let them die, they don’t matter. I might actually hate humanity more after videos like this. It’s absolutely sickening. I hate being included In this group of monsters.
