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.

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.
-Patrick Henry

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?

If it's lyme, get it treated pronto

BEFORE it becomes cronic
How long ago was this?
The sooner it's treated the better the chances of getting rid of it.

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.

Sounds good. If we don't

Sounds good. If we don't connect in the morning, maybe we will another time. Just keep looking for me if you want to look for me and in case a lot of time passes from now to then, remind me of our conversation here.

Don't forget to get your vaccinations, kids

Because mooooooooooooo.

I choose that risk
