How do taenias obtain food and make gas exchange?

Biology

Tapeworms have hooks and sucking structures on their heads (scolex) that fixate the parasite in the gut wall; these structures often do not injure the host tissue. The parasite obtains food and makes gas exchange through absorption and diffusion across its skin; since it is a platyhelminth it does not have a digestive system or a circulatory system.
