Gutworms stay in our bodies. They feed on the food which human beings eat. As a result gutworms are parasites while human beings act as the hosts. Roundworm germs are passed to humans through their eggs in the soil. On the other hand, tapeworms are spread through eating pork or incooked food. Gut worms make us feel weak.
