Does anyone deworm their kids?

I remember our grandmoms and moms even me, use to get dewormed every year whether we had worms or not.. what has changed?
I just read 13 billion people have worms without even knowing it...I mean if you take a puplic transportation, or ever ate without washing yoir hands chances are you have worms.....

  • Well, I looked up the medicine that the WHO uses for deworming in third world countries. Albendazole is one of them. It looks like those who take it are more susceptible to infection and illness. And it isn't safe to take while pregnant. So I am going out on a limb and guessing that since our sanitation has improved dramatically since our granparents the population at large is not at risk. HOWEVER, you can easily become infected in the right (wrong?) situation. I wish I knew what our parents took though.
