CNN reports that Robert F.

Kennedy Jr. offered his first public explanation of a medical abnormality he experienced in 2010, which he said was the result of a parasite that entered his brain and died.


While speaking on the podcast 'Pushing the Limits with Brian Shapiro,' Kennedy said the experience involved "brain fog" and "having trouble with word retrieval and short-term memory.".

According to the Independent presidential candidate, doctors initially told him they thought he had a tumor in his brain.


A second docotor revealed that "this is almost certainly a parasite that got into your brain … it’s a parasite that’s very common in India where I had done a lot of environmental work.”.

Stefanie Spear, a spokesperson for Kennedy’s campaign, said he had “traveled extensively in Africa, South America and Asia” while working as an environmental advocate.

When asked how the condition could impact his presidential bid, Spear said, “The issue was resolved more than 10 years ago and he is in robust physical and mental health.

Questioning Mr. Kennedy’s health is a hilarious suggestion, given his competition.".

In the same podcast, Kennedy detailed another experience he had with mercury poisoning, which he said occurred near the same time as the incident with the parisitic worm.

Kennedy said tests revealed "sky high" levels of mercury in he blood, forcing him to undergo chelation therapy to have the metals removed from his body.

At the same time, I was having my mercury tested, and I was getting all kinds of tests, and my mercury test came back sky high.

So, ten times what, you know, the EPA levels were for blood mercury, I think it was.

They were over ten times what– what anybody considered safe.

And I had that chelated out and all of that brain fog went away, Robert Kennedy Jr., via CNN.

CNN reports that Kennedy insisted that he has since made a full recovery from both health scares
