I appreciate your finding, but those are some sensationalist news. :smileyhappy:

Well, I meant that a little tongue in cheek for this forum, but to be honest, there is a lot of information coming out lately in well respected journals about the mind control aspects of the parasite T-Gondii.  It's now known that this parasite does indeed deliberately alter human personality in ways that help it to fulfill it's life cycle.

All the more disturbing when we see the estimated numbers of the infected, nearly half the world's population.  All told, it's not too far of a stretch to imagine a world like The Last of Us.

It's true. I first saw this on the "I F***ing Love Science" Facebook page, which is always a great source of reliable science information. Here's the article they link to:

It's not as dramatic as "zombies" of course, the parasites are simply stated to influence your emotional behaviour.
