In brief: Few
Parasites are uncommon but include fish tapeworms from sushi and the like, hookworms, histoplasmosis, toxoplasmosis, and less commonly tapeworms and roundworms.
Food should come from a safe source, be cooked properly and precautions taken out of doors for parasites entering bare feet and from animals excreta.
