Attack of the worms

In the developing world simple things have enormous impact. Worms (the kind you get inside you) reduce productivitiy whether we are talking about manufacturing or learning in school. Nicholas D. Kristof writes in the International Herald Tribune that "Here in Congo, one study found that 82 percent of children have worms, and partly as a consequence 70 percent are anemic."

The whole editorial is well worth reading.

I'd say worms are a powerful factor in the enternal business world. One negative factor in a business atmosphere, even though small, could cause a big problem within the business.
