Minecraft has a lot of mobs from insects to mammals but one thing they are missing is parasites. So why not start by adding a common parasite the Tapeworm. Tapeworm will be unique because you won't be able to see it until you get rid of it out of your body. But how did it get in your body. Well there is a 10% chance you can get one from drinking a water bottle. There is also a 10% chance to get one from eating Raw Beef and Raw Porkchop. Once you have a Tapeworm in your body a status effect will pop up called Parasite. This effect will slowly kill the player. You can get rid of it by drinking milk. Once milk is drunk the Tapeworm mob will pop out and start to attack the player. It will have 10 hearts and once killed will drop 4 to 5 exp and 1 to 3 Tapeworm Eggs. These Tapeworm eggs can be brewed to make Parasitic Potion which gives people the Parasite Effect starting the whole process over again. One thing to note is that the Parasite Effect is infinite.
Parasite Effect Idea by Antelopegamer24
It would act like Hunger with your hunger meter going down. Eating doesn't replenish the Hunger Meter. It will still kill you. (I personally like this idea better)
