What would a vegan do if they had. Tapeworm or if their home had termites?

Update:

Since they are animals

    If a parasite threatens my home or my well being then I'll terminate it with extreme prejudice.

    Im a vegan, not a pacifist.

    They would eat a troll. Trolls are a vegan 'meat'.

    I guess they'd ask their mothers what to do.

    They would do the same as anybody else; ‘vegan’ isn’t synonymous with ‘martyr’ and doing everything you can to avoid contributing to animal suffering doesn’t mean passively allowing your body or your home to be attacked.

    Someone with a tapeworm can be effectively treated with a single dose of medicine; this kills the tapeworm and the body passes it.

    You’ve chosen a bad example for your gotcha though; eating undercooked meat from an infected animal is the main cause of tapeworm infection in humans - so vegans are the group least likely to be infected.

    For information:

    Veganism is about minimising your contribution to animal suffering and exploitation as far as is - in the words of the man who invented the word vegan - reasonable and practical.

      Good answer. But the words are " possible and practicable". No biggie. same meaning. 
      Also it about avoiding animal exploitation.

    If they had tapeworms the vegan would probably eat more of their mung bean compote.  That'll show the little wormy bastards.
