Scientists Claim 40% of Population Infected with "Mind Control Parasite"


intellihub.com

Joanne Webster, professor of parasite epidemiology at Imperial College London, explains that many parasites favor the brain, “because it shelters them from the full fury of the immune system”. But, she says, “it also gives them direct access to the machinery to alter the host’s behavior”.

Toxo – which comes in the form of tiny single-celled cysts – was clustered in two areas of the brain: those controlling fear and pleasure. Pathways that normally responded to the smell of cat urine with alarm

Ok guys, I have no idea!
Although this is in the UK it can be found everywhere.

Also they say it's been around for a while, but it could be more powerful today.

Could this parasite be an ingredient in why so many people are dumb?
Could it be the reason why nobody cares?

This parasite affects dopamine production, too little dopamine causes apathy while too much can cause paranoia and suicidal tendencies.
The article only talks about paranoia but doesn't speak about apathy.

Thoughts ATS?

Some cat-scratch FEVAAAA (dur ner ner ner, RAWWWR!) and a healthy dose of GMO-laced McDonalds would make Einstein into Forrest Gump in about 3.2 seconds.. so gah! Just more stuff to worry about. Dangit. Well, my dog would rip a cat's face off.. so I hope there is some antigen in smelly dog saliva that will keep me safe!

If you actually realise that cats are your masters then no - you are not infected...yet....

Anyone who lives with or handles a cat is infected, so it will be more like 70%

There seems to be a lot of cat cohabitators on the site.

You the reader join the dots and do the math on that!

The world will be a better place without cats.

So everyone is paranoid?
Don't you think such a theory is kinda paranoid?

So.... that begs the question, do you own a cat?

I do and maybe it is a good thing, maybe that is why I talk to my cat and he answers through me speaking in a posh voice...
Remember the ancients thought cats were Gods.
They sure have taken over the internet.



lil Bub I could eat him up Nom Nom Nom too cute.

I don't think it is paranoid at all. Have a think about it.

No, I stay as far away from cats as I can. I am happy and uninfected, gladly.

Seeing we have been infected for thousands of years, I think the benefits of having a cat live with you outweigh the downsides.
My Cat is great he helps keep my street free from vermin and talks lots, he even dances when in the mood.

40%? That's not too bad, Now maybe they can move on to themselves and work out how many scientists are infected with the bs virus. I'd say around 80%.

Speak for yourself. I come from a long line of cat avoiders.

When you are not infected it is very easy to spot someone who is infected.

That's really cool in a scary way.

I'm currently taking a microbiology course and am learning all sorts of new things about microbes.

They can even be linked to causing cancers, diabetes, ulcers, schizophrenia, etc.

Schizophrenia seems to be related to this topic especially. Correlations have been found between that and the borna agent (a virus).

Your article mentions paranoia as a possible symptom and we know a division of schizophrenia is paranoid schizophrenia.

So I suppose if viruses can be linked to that one, why not this one?

No doubt world governments have been experimenting with them for thought control.

Oh no you don't!
There's no such thing as a long line of cat avoiders
And secondly even if that were true there's no way that info was passed down lol


you probably mean maybe father and grandfather
there's hardly "a long line"
That's more like a dot

There was a huge thread about this just a couple months ago or less.

A good read if you want to find it.
