United Press International - NewsTrack - Cat parasite linked to schizophrenia?: "Cat parasite linked to schizophrenia?

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A Washington psychiatrist believes there is a link between exposure to cats in childhood and schizophrenia.

Dr. Fuller Torrey says that he has noticed that schizophrenics were more likely to have had cats when they were very young or mothers who had cats while pregnant.

Torrey told the New York Daily News that his wife thinks he is going to be killed by cat lovers. But he still believes that there is a link between early exposure to Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite found in cats, and schizophrenia."

I talked this over with this voices in my head, and we really aren't buying the link between Whiskers, Tinker, and OJ, and the fact that I talk things like this over with voices in my head.

Then again, Satan occasionally spoke through OJ, but... Well... I, er, had a neighbor who was into, um, herbs.
