Seems like the toxoplasma infection can partially zombify mice into making them more likely to become prey for cats (which is crucial for the toxoplasma's reproductive cycle, they can only sexually reproduce in the cat's intestines)...
The bad news is, the subtle means by which the toxoplasma achieves this seem to have an effect on humans too!!!
Read all about it! Read all about it!


Anyway, I think it's interesting how microorganisms run this planet - it also explains why the Greys are so fond of **** probes : they're looking for our Leaders!!!
