Anybody ever get sick from messing w/ tank

Has anyone ever gotten sick from their fish? I see warnings every now and then about that.

My thoughts exactly LOL.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

No but I wash my hands after handling the water and supplies (those little worms in my gravel creep me out and I hate the thought of ingesting them. Not to mention all the fish poo).

i havent heard of anyone getting sick from thier tanks or fish, but a few things worth mentioning.......Bloodworms.....ALOT of people are allergic to handling them causing rashes or worse............Also, even though its very rare, and probably hard to contract, fish tuberculosis can be passed onto humans......
