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.
