RFK Jr.’s Strange Brain Worm Disclosure Raises Questions

(NewsReady.com) – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is known for making strange remarks. He’s even been called a “conspiracy theorist” in the past. Recently, he raised questions after disclosing that he once had a brain worm.

The New York Times published a report about a 2012 deposition in a divorce with his ex-wife, Kennedy discussed the brain worm. The independent presidential candidate had reportedly started experiencing severe brain fog and memory loss in 2010.

Kennedy reportedly said that it got so bad that one of his friends thought he might have a brain tumor. The issues were especially concerning because his uncle, the late Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), died the year before from brain cancer.

Kennedy consulted top neurologists, and doctors noticed a dark spot after a brain scan. They concluded that he had a tumor. He was scheduled for an immediate procedure at Duke University Medical Center with the same surgeon who operated on his uncle.

But before he left, Kennedy received a call from New York Presbyterian Hospital, informing him a doctor thought it might be a dead parasite, not a tumor. The doctor reportedly told Kennedy that the worm “got into [his] brain and ate a portion of it” before dying.

The independent candidate has portrayed himself as younger and more vibrant than President Joe Biden, 81, and former President Donald Trump, 77. But the revelation about the brain parasite has raised questions, especially since he said, “I have cognitive problems, clearly,” in the 2012 deposition. He also admitted to suffering from long- and short-term memory loss.

In an interview with The Times, Kennedy brushed off the concerns. He said that doctors removed the parasite, and he no longer has any fogginess or memory loss. In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Kennedy said he would “eat 5 more brain worms and still beat” Biden and Trump in a debate.

Kennedy believes he got the brain worm while traveling in Africa.
