From urban legend to reality?

It's a famous (possibly true) urban legend: women knowingly or unknowingly swallowing tapeworms to lose weight.

But if this story is on the ball, it looks like it just became fact:

Female students in China have been eating roundworm eggs to lose weight for job interviews - because employment is so hard to come by.

They hatch in the stomach, allowing those who take them to shed pounds without exercising or dieting in the Xiamen, China.
