|MadSci Network: Medicine|
I have read information on many sites, all of which say that maggots eat ONLY infected, rotting tissue, and that they leave healthy stuff alone. I even read one report that says the labs that "grow" the maggots use rotting liver because, "maggots would rather starve than eat fresh food." (site: http://web.mit.edu/jyung/www/articles/junk/maggots.html) This guy is the ONLY source I have found that say maggots will go right on to eat healthy tissue, so I am wondering where he gets his information from. Thanks
