The Strange Link Between Parasites, Cats, and Explosive Rage

| |

Top Tier Gear USA

It might be hard to believe, but adorable kittens like the one in the photo above might be harboring a parasite that has been linked to explosive bouts of rage in humans.

That parasite is called Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii), and it is found throughout the world. An estimated 60 million people in the United States and 30-50 percent of the world population has been exposed and may be chronically infected.

T. gondii can sexually reproduce only within cats, so they are defined as the definitive host of the parasite. All other hosts – hosts in which only asexual reproduction can occur – are defined as intermediate hosts, including humans, cats, and birds.

Very few people realize they are infected because in healthy individuals, symptoms are rare because the immune system prevents T. gondii from causing illness.

A new study found that individuals with a psychiatric disorder involving recurrent bouts of extreme, impulsive anger – road rage, for example – are more than twice as likely to have been exposed to T. gondii than healthy individuals with no psychiatric diagnosis.

      • Smarty

        Actually, cats just shit and piss in a box, jump all over it, and then cross contaminate it to your countertops, furniture, and yourself…. That’s all.

        • At least cats are born housebroken.

        • Nathan Togain

          AND dogs eat their shit and other animals shit and lick your face, that isn’t very hygienic either not to mention slobbering everywhere leaving the slime.

          • Reverend Draco

            Dogs’ mouths are still more hygienic than humans’.

          Agreed! Cats are gross. Nothing smells worse than cat piss and you can’t get rid of it!

          • You CAN get rid of it, there is a product called urine destroyer that works 100% on cat piss! It takes more than 2 weeks to work but it completely removes the smell because it biologically breaks it down.

          • sunshine ✓ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ ˢᵘᵖᵖᵒʳᵗᵉʳ

            Wow I didn’t know that…good news for cat people 😀

          • Works on any urine too, my snakes might have my cat beat with stinky piss, lol!
            (I am actually not a cat person at all but my woman wanted one so I reluctantly agreed IF she did ALL of the work… The first year I only played with the cat occasionally and that’s it but then she eventually grew on me and now I love that cat so much I couldn’t imagine not having her… but I am STILL not really a cat person)

    • No more reason than to hate dogs.
      I’m about to unsubscribe from Jake’s because their claims are seldom substantiated by the references found in the literature.
      I’ve been infected with toxoplasmosis since birth, my family having always had cats, most of which have been outdoor cats. Since my immune system is completely familiar with this parasite, it is unlikely to become a problem unless I get lazy in maintaining my immune system, which is the primary cause of most deleterious infections, the human body being 90% not human. “10% Human: How Your Body’s Microbes Hold the Key to Health and Happiness” by Alanna Collen is well worth reading.

    It’s not good to have any animal in your house with you…that same parasite toxoplasmosis can kill unborn children , birds have a parachete parasite that is linked to tumorous cancers and dogs have a parasite that can cause muscular dystrophy…

    • If there were no animals in your house, where would you live?
      Toxoplasmosis can’t harm a fetus in a woman who was infected when she became pregnant if her immune system is working correctly.

      • jaguar

        You are such an idiot !! Yes women have had their unborn child die from toxoplasmosis!! I’ve been in the medical field 35 years you dumbass!! So don’t even try to argue with me…you’re nothing but a thick headed ,argumentive moron…

        • If you never learned that only fresh toxoplasmosis infections matter, maybe you should have gotten training before you began your career emptying bedpans.

        • Milly Vanilly

          For someone in the medical field for so long you should have learned to control your tolerance a WEE bit better, don’t ya think ?

    • We do the same things, blamed on our fellow humans.

  • jim_robert

    So there’s a link between parasites and cats? I assume this means that all leftists are cat owners, correct?

    • The same way that most dog turds are left for someone else to clean up, by rightists.

  • Andrew Miller

    And I thought I was just crazy. Now I can blame my cat and claim victimhood just like a real Uhhmurriken. Yay!

  • Art V

    I love articles like this … they only serve to demonize alternative behavior and do nothing but cause further division within society. My guess is that it will someday be used to explain why someone should be persecuted (or prosecuted) for NOT towing the sheeple line …

    4 A new concept that might be worth studying: Following are 4 concepts that when studied together may be an important part of the puzzle that have been recently discovered.

    1) Nihil dicit judgment: This court order is actually higher than a default judgment and leaves no room for an appeal.

    2) There is no accusation in civil court; therefore the word “charge” is synonymous with the word “bill” in civil court.

    3) The IRS is a debt collection service.

    4) Debt collection is covered under Title 15 U.S.C. chapter 4 subchapter V section 1692, not Title 26.

      Satan on the brain – a sure sign of an inferior intellect, focusing on fictional characters rather than objective reality.

      • jaguar

        Listen dipstick….Satan, God, Angels are true beings that are real and people have seen them through supernatural Experiences… Just because you haven’t seen them doesn’t mean they don’t exist…so stop making fun of people who do believe in them, you dumb Creton !!!

        • If the claimed observers are as easy to deceive as you are, they must be as ignorant as you are, so you are destroying the credibility of a large number of people in your application of ad hominem against those who don’t believe anything you say anyway.

        • The one called Satan by all the Christians who run to God for protection from him, a standard scam. Most of the governments of the world have used it at one time or another. Our’s uses it continuously, creating enemies by attacking those we should leave alone because they have never threatened or attacked us, those threats and attacks being the work of propagandistic fictionalists.

  • Jollyjoke

    That’s just great. Now defense attorneys around the nation are going to demand their clients be tested and released if this parasite is found. Of course this could explain Hillary’s psychotic rampage in Libya. Perhaps she was exposed to this parasite by their cat Socks before it died in 2009.

    • Just because you didn’t know about it doesn’t mean it has been unknown until you did. Her psychopathologies preceded her introduction to her equally psychotic husband. It is well documented in Roger Stone’s “The Clintons’ war on women.”

    I hate to be the one to break the news to everyone but all animals carry parasites that can be contracted by humans, everything from livestock and pets to wildlife and flies. I actually like cats myself and have had cats my entire life as well as dogs and other animals including but not limited to pets, livestock and wildlife, I even had a chinchilla that came from a research lab and I haven’t yet went on a murderous rampage or even had a case of road rage. I understand every person has their personal preference where pets are concerned but it’s important to remember the functions these animals serve outside of being pets. In case you are unaware every year in this country there are still a hand full of cases of bubonic plague reported, so unless you want to see the Black Death sweep across this country like it did in middle ages Europe you should atleast learn to appreciate the natural instinctual vermin control that cats provide to humans, yes I know they kill other wildlife, they’re supposed to, that’s how nature in her infinite wisdom designed them to be, it’s only imperfect by our perceptions.

    Some cancers are parasitic, there’s even a few doctors who claim most disease is caused by parasites. Consider mankind dewormed themselves for thousands of years up until chemical treatments were introduced in 1930’s, natural cures were looked down on, as “natural cures” produce little profit. Egyptians, American indians made enema bags out of animal bladders. Even the Amish deworm their children every 6 months with a natural remedy. Anyone who sleeps with a dog or cat is susceptible to the Toxoplasma parasite, but I believe parasites to be a much larger problem, and the topic, and treatment has been intentionally removed IMO. There’s thousands of people on the internet reporting parasites after tests came back negative from their doctor. We’ve forgotten to deworm ourselves, and the medical community is deaf on the subject.

    Be proactive, find a parasite protocol that works for you. It can be as simple and cheap as 1 tsp of (food grade) diatomaceous earth everyday for 30 days.
    Before you mock my post :), in a recent study 100% of 200 people were found to have parasites.

    • I won’t ever mock your posts as they are always informative.

    • Chinbato

      I have had cats in my home for my entire life- and I have also fostered them when I volunteered at a no-kill shelter- still no ILL effects! 35+ years and never had this “disease”. Rank this BS right on up there with the “Zika Virus that’s shrinking kids heads!” LAME

    Well, that explains why the leftist cat ladies are all bat-shit crazy…….

  • Tatiana Covington

    Cats… our alien overlords!

  • Chinbato

    Im sorry, but this article is BS. The ONLY way to get Toxoplasmosis is through handling cat shit. REALLY??? Its a continuation of the old wives tale about how pregnant women shouldnt clean the litter box…. This is SHITTY journalism. Cmon Draco-dipshit, lets see your BS rant…. (paid by the DaillySheepleGroup) and Mac Slavo…- might even be that annoying shits kid! LOL!!!

    How do people get toxoplasmosis?

    A Toxoplasma infection occurs by:

    Eating undercooked, contaminated meat (especially pork, lamb, and venison).

    Accidental ingestion of undercooked, contaminated meat after handling it and not washing hands thoroughly (Toxoplasma cannot be absorbed through intact skin).

    Eating food that was contaminated by knives, utensils, cutting boards and other foods that have had contact with raw, contaminated meat.

    Drinking water contaminated with Toxoplasma gondii.

    Accidentally swallowing the parasite through contact with cat feces that contain Toxoplasma. This might happen by

    cleaning a cat’s litter box when the cat has shed Toxoplasma in its feces

    touching or ingesting anything that has come into contact with cat feces that contain Toxoplasma

    accidentally ingesting contaminated soil (e.g., not washing hands after gardening or eating unwashed fruits or vegetables from a garden)
