What pine bark extract appears to do is reduce the oxidative stress that lead to the formation of circulatory and blood disorders in the first place. You can think of it kind of like the drains and piping in your house -- when gunk builds up over time causing blockages, it is necessary to dissolve these blockages with a drain rooter or dissolving agent. In this case, pine bark extract is the dissolving agent.

The current study(Prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii, Bartonella species and haemoplasma infection in cats in South Africa) investigated the prevalence of selected infectious agents in cats from Johannesburg, South Africa, for which no published data exists.

In a separate article, newly published in the March 2015 issue of the popular science magazine Scientific American MIND, Sullivan and IU School of Medicine colleague Gustavo Arrizabalaga, professor of pharmacology and toxicology and of microbiology and immunology, describe research by others dating back to the 1980s showing that rodents infected with Toxoplasma behave differently, including not only being unafraid of cat odors, but actually attracted to them. In effect, research suggests, Toxoplasma modifies the host rodents' brains so that the animals will be eaten and the parasites can make their way to the cat intestinal system -- the only place where Toxoplasma can sexually reproduce.
Is it just me?
Or is this highly researched, expert opinion just speculation that makes people want to commit suicide because rats lose their fear of cats?
Imo, lots of reasons people use to justify suicide. Blaming it on a virus is one way of deflecting from the reality… life sucks. "Common brain Parasites" didn't cause all the crime, poverty, endless war, debt, etc. The gubment let that stuff happen.
Chalk this up along side the war on terror, bermuda triangle and chemtrail BS.
Intriguingly -- and much more speculatively, Arrizabalaga and Sullivan warn -- some research has suggested that Toxoplasma infection could alter human behavior, and that changes could vary by gender. One study found that infected men tend to be introverted, suspicious and rebellious, while infected women tended to be extraverted, trusting and obedient. Others have suggested an association with schizophrenia.
Speculating from 'one study suggests' doesn't do it for me, sorry.
These cysts may contribute to the suppression of a rodent’s typical aversion to feline odors
It is possible that immune response to infection with T. gondii exacerbates suicide risk factors such as depression – a potential precursor to suicide – and resultant cognitive deficits.
For one thing, even with a 26 percent infection rate, the number of women in the study who attempted suicide was very small. For those who may be at risk, there may be treatments.
women who were infected were 1.8 times more likely to attempt suicide by violent means than uninfected women.

We have a lot of stinging nettle around here. I had a clay rock fall apart and it was full of seeds, they were so thick in that area they looked like a blob. I had to look up what they were and transplanted some of them. I crushed up the rest of that clay ball and tossed it around. Now I got nettle all over the place. I wonder who put those thousands of seeds into that clay rock?
I also have another clay rock with what looks like barley or rice in it. The clay is harder though, I don't think they will take.

I read somewhere that treatments for Malaria may also help treat this.

ATS be aware that I would not recommend the advice of our fellow ATS member. This Hydroxychloroquine probably is prescribed by your doctor. No thanks. Do you happen to know the side effects?

I work in the veterinary field having to deal with people in panic over this from time to time. To say these speculative studies do way more harm than good. Sure be cautious, be cleanly, but please don't dump your pets on the street or euthanize them out of fear(as some people have)!
