Are most mental health problems caused by Toxoplasmosis or other pathogens ?

As put forward in the Atlantic article, the rise of depression in Europe was corolatable with the increase of toxoplasmosis.


With the discovery that the plaques in the brain may actually be PROTECTIVE for the neurons, it is quite possible that they are there to damp down the spurious electrical signals being produced from the pathogens that are attached there.

A new paper shows that mannitol opens the blood/brain barrier for a half hour. Long enough for a cyst to get thru.

Is much more likely that nearly ALL neuro-degenerative diseases are caused by pathogens.

They also just published the paper showing that HALF of all back pain is caused by bacterial infection.

We need to stop funding studies that do not control for food additives and pathogenic influences.
I'm not kidding about the food additives either, they just found that polysorbate can create an airtight and electron gun proof shell around bugs, leaving them able to still reproduce.
This could allow the bugs to continue exuding the chemicals that releases the inflammation chems, putting your body in a permanent state of chem stress.


This Tween 20 is used in almost every bio, neuro, and pharmacuetical lab as cleansers, washes, and pre-observation stage of testing in the entire field.

If you are having troubles, the first thing to do is get a pcr test for t. gondi, or toxoplasmosis.

start here.

and i would read this, if you are having emotional swings and arthritis symptoms, this is easy and cheap to try. Read the hazards in the article.


(This is actually from the comment i posted on the above mentioned talk

    They occur mostly as a result of one's difficult or faulty interaction with other people.

    A lion hardly suffers from a mental illness. This is the gift only for us humans.

      May 17 2013: How do you know about the stats on mental illness caused by toxoplasmosis.? Have you done studies or checked cadavers ? Awkward and faulty interaction with people can be a side effect of being mentally ill eg paranoid etc,
      Actually lions in their older years will suffer from Alzeimers, this mental illness belongs to meat eaters,including meat eating humans, I learnt this from a vet, its just that lions don't live that long in general or speak our language so its not obvious. But in general I would say animals are much saner than most human beings, they don't enslave other animals , ridicule them or factory farm them. Use them for entertainment , or give them crap for being gay. So there you go :D

        I am a doctor and we are supposed to study all mental illnesses, their causes and treatment. All the past studies show that Toxoplasmosis is a rare cause of mental illness. Maladjustment to the surroundings is a major factor.

        Meat eating habits have nothing to do with mental illness, so if you are not a strict vegetarian go ahead buy some for your self without any fear.

        I fully agree with you most of people love their dog more than their neighbor.
