Chinese students eat roundworm eggs to lose weight for new job interviews. Chinese female students like to eat roundworm eggs to diet. They hatch in the stomach and work as a weight loss supplement.

Swallowing the worms is extremely dangerous - and definitely not to be recommended for those wanting to lose weight.

Women in China are under pressure to appear thinner than they are to have any chance of landing a new job in a country that already has shortages for employment.

The unemployment rate stands at 22 percent. The size of the labor pool has grown by 112 million people over the last decade to more than one billion people. Other students are staring at pictures for hours on end to suppress their appetite so they can shed excess weight.

"China is facing huge employment pressures at present and for the foreseeable future," Yi Chengji, spokesman for the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, said in a statement. "As China's urbanization quickens, employment pressures from the many surplus rural laborers are getting bigger and bigger."
