Scientists Claim 40% of Population is Infected with “Mind Control Parasite”

Recently a team of scientists made a statement claiming that up to 40% of people are infected with brain parasites that have the ability to alter human behavior.

By JG Vibes | Intellihub.com | March 28, 2013

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”.

The Telegraph reported that:

“There is a single-celled parasite called Toxoplasma gondii, which is found in domestic cats, and is estimated to infect 350,000 people a year in Britain. Its effect on humans became the obsession of Jaroslav Flegr, professor of evolutionary biology at Charles University in Prague, who linked it with disturbed behaviours such as reckless driving and a greater risk of suicide. Rats infected with Toxo, as scientists at Imperial College discovered, actually like the smell of cat urine, instead of being terrified by it. And studies at Stanford University in California have revealed the neural changes that lay behind this transformation.

This Article is Based on Complete Nonsense.

This article is complete nonsense. Human beings are self-determined individuals. Is anyone here going to blame the passage of ObamaCare on a parasite? Was it parasites that caused the US Congress to give us NDAA and the Patriot Act? Complete Nonsense.

Does anyone following The Daily Paul seriously believe they have so little self-determinism that they would allow a parasite to cloud their thinking?

The "scientists" behind this nonsensical study apparently believe the brain is involved in thinking. It is not. Just go get some brains at a butcher shop and see how much thinking you can get out of some brains. Thinking in humans is done by the soul, ie human spirit. That thought process cannot be delegated to the brain any more than driving decisions can be delegated to one's car. Nor can a decision to fire a firearm be removed from the responsibility of the human spirit to the brain any more than it can to the firearm itself. Decisions lie in the ability of the human spirit to make decisions. Drugs and injuries can cloud those decisions. Drugs and injuries can make clear decisions more difficult to make. But all human decisions do lie with the human spirit, not some parasite or bacteria.

Biological parasites can certainly cause damage in an individual's body. The pain and loss surrounding that damage can cause one to make irrational decisions. However, the power to make self-determined decisions is still there, though one's decisions may be clouded by his loss and / or injury.

Our freedoms depend on our ability to make our own self-determined decisions, independent of outside influences such as parasites or the New York Times of some politician. The moment we give up the idea that we are self-determined individuals, we start to lose our freedoms.

Uhm...

It's dead, butchered matter that's not connected to the body at that point. No shit it's not going to be doing any thinking.

Metaphor for government/society

Government lodges in the thinking centers of a population, alters population's behaviors.

This study is another example of...

the propaganda parasite emitted by Western science and media. They warn us about cat litter while ignoring the real parasitic threat posed by mind control propaganda. Corrupt elites are at the top of the parasite food chain and they use propaganda to implant parasites in minds of "common folk". Then the elitist parasites feed off the labor and ingenuity of their hosts.

I think this story could be used as...

metaphor to describe the parasitic effects of propaganda on the human mind. For example, if Hitler represents the smell of cat urine, Nazi propaganda attracted the German population to the smell of cat urine and this attraction led to the slaughter of many Nazi rats.

In the U.S., the Fed and its bipartisan constituents represent the smell of cat urine, and all those who think they're benefiting from the Fed's fascist policies while ignoring the risks, are the suicidal rats.

Detached retina

A friend of mine was diagnosed with toxoplasmosis when her vision suddenly changed. She was found to have a detached retina and at the time they believed it had been transmitted by years of cleaning out her roommate's cat's litter box. She never had any psychological presentation and is doing well now although she won't get within 10 feet of a cat.

Litter boxes are considered a prime source of infection and after this I kept a face mask handy and washed my hands well when I had an indoor cat.

Neurotransmitter control

established?

"...we’ve shown for the first time how the parasite behaves in the body of its host, by which I mean how it enters the brain and manipulates the host by taking over one of the brain’s neurotransmitters.”

So if they've figured out the parasite does it, perhaps the next step is
being able to initiate/control the process. Or maybe they've already figured
it out - that would explain a lot.

Gee, that stuff used to scare me, now I feel all warm and fuzzy when the
DHS patrols come down my street in their APC's...

How Convenient!

We now have a thousands year old cat virus in us that incredibly manifests itself exaclty like the side effects SSRI drugs!

Now we know why these suicides and shooters exist! It's not psychotropic drugs!It's because they are cat owners!

Jackson Galaxy just became the new Osama bin Laden.

Toxoplasma is real. If you

Toxoplasma is real. If you took 5 minutes to investigate you would realize that.

Wonder if Big Pharma gave

Wonder if Big Pharma gave funding to write this article. Sorry, just don't trust media much anymore. Not saying the test isn't true. But I guess all cat owners are now in the target of big government. I say eat some cloves and black walnut hull every once in a while and don't worry about the parasites unless problems start to occur. Native Americans used black walnut hull to control parasites in the gut; not sure if they'd be useful in other parts of the body.

Not News

That was an editorial, not a news article. I really prefer to get my science from more neutral sources.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

"parasite" it's called a TV

"parasite" it's called a TV (aka brainwash box) and it's more than 40% that are "infected"

thanks for clearing that up.

do they also belch or excrete fluoride?

I've read in wired magazine

I've read in wired magazine articles that toxoplasma gondhii is also linked to schizophrenia as well as turning some women into sex kittens.

...

Can you prove this statement about women?

I would like to do an in depth interview with some of these alleged 'sex kittens'. Got any phone numbers? Addresses? For entirely scientific reasons, of course!

This explains some of the sheep, but seriously, -

"reckless driving and a greater risk of suicide"

sounds more like emotion/inhibition (like alcohol & certain drugs), than (mind)"control"

Some additional info on Toxoplasma gondii:

http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/toxoplasmosis/

Interesting to note the infection numbers between the sources. Seems no one really knows.

If reckless driving is a symptom, then 99% of Texas in infected.

At least those driving on IH35.

I think we have selfish, inconsiderate asshol---err, I mean

"reckless" drivers in most big cities. From experience, I've noticed the bigger the city, the worse(aggressive) the driving. I've also noticed that the same can be said for lower class urban areas as well.

Florida

The melting pot of idiotic drivers.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.

From original article in Telegraph

Do any other microbes provoke similar changes? The leading candidate so far is one of the most common in the world – influenza. Researchers at Binghamton University in New York State, using the ’flu vaccine as a proxy for infection, recorded the behaviour of 36 academic staff two days before, and two days after, getting a jab.

The result was astonishing. Before the vaccination, according to the journal Annals of Epidemiology, they interacted with an average of 54 people a day; afterwards it shot up to 101. Yet the amount of time they actually spent with each person plummeted – from 33 to 2.5 minutes. “Subjects who normally had very limited or simple social lives,” said one researcher, “were suddenly deciding they needed to go out to bars or parties” – the perfect places for a virus to find new hosts.

This may sound terrifying, or at the least unnerving, but there is much that researchers hope to learn from such infections: for example, understanding the way they rewire emotional circuits could provide valuable insights when developing psychiatric drugs. Even zombies, it seems, may have their uses.

i can attest to that

In December 2011 I went on vacation and visited family. I got the flu there and on my way home on the airplane it got really bad. I was bed ridden for a week after. After I got over it I started having pain in my knees that was unbearable. It spread to my hands, then my entire body hurt. After numerous doctors checked me out I was first told it was arthritis. I didn't buy that so I kept finding new doctors to check me out. I had a gauntlet of tests ran and finally my last and current rheumatologist after ruling everything out said it has to be fibromyalgia. I'm 26 now. In constant pain and it all started from getting the flu.

Never had a flu vaccination ever in my life. Just the ones you get when your younger. Measles, mumps, rubella that's all as far as I can remember. No "pig flu" or the vaccine.

Did you get bit by a tick?

Sounds eerily like Lyme disease. Are you better?

they tested me for lymes

I don't know the full details but they said supposedly that it was negative but I just learned that there are some 26 things they can transfer to humans. I'm going to ask my doctor when I see him again.

I'm still dealing with constant 24/7 pain. Thanks for the sentiment though.

Oh lordy, I am sorry.

Most doctors are not what are referred to a Lyme Literate. False negatives too common to make the ELISA very reliable. A Western Pap test is needed by a Lyme Literate Lab like Igenex.

Contact me from my personal page if you need information. I have had it for many years. Even if it is not Lyme, navigating through our shameful 'healthcare' system trying to get a diagnosis is a nightmare.

thanks

I had the blood drawn from my doctors office and they sent it out to a place to be tested. They lost the first one.. no idea how that happened and drew blood again and it came back negative but I'll look into this. Thank you.
