Abstract

Soil transmitted helminths (STH) are helminthiasis, until now it is still a public health problem in the tropics, mainly caused by
intestinal nematodes transmitted through the soil. Organic vegetables are environmentally friendly and more inclined to the
concept of nature (back to nature) and without using pesticides. But until now, there have been no studies examining
whether organically grown vegetables are free from contamination of STH worm eggs and larvae. This research is knowing
the picture of organic vegetable pollution by STH. This research is a descriptive survey with a laboratory approach. Sampling
was taken from three modern markets of the City of Medan, North Sumatra Province. In this study, 50 grams of eachorganic
greenery vegetables, i.e. pokchoy, mustard greens, curly lettuce, white cabbage, white radishes, celery and spinach, were
obtained to be examined in the laboratory. This study showed that Ascaris lumbricoides eggs were found in spinach, curly
lettuce, chinese cabbage, white radishes. Hookworm eggs are found in curly lettuce. Hookworm larvae are found in curly
lettuce, and turnips. Eggs and larvae of STH were found in several samples of organic greenery vegetables.
