Cat parasites could be a cause of more number of suicide attempts, says a new study. The unusual facts are coming from the findings of a recent study that has been published in the August issue of the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. In the conclusions, the study has written that experts have found a common parasite in cats, which they doubt forces the human hosts to attempt suicide with its fearful and uncommon effects.
If these are really the facts that one can say that a cat parasite is causing more suicides. The news is primarily talking about the Toxoplasma gondii parasite, which has some severely deadly effects, especially on human beings, who if get in contact with same are more than seven times more likely to attempt suicide.
The T. gondii parasite found in cats can easily transfer to human hosts through ingesting its eggs. Thus its time that people beware of the parasite and take all the precautions to get safe from the deadlier one.
Explaining the whole link between the parasite and its triggering forces making more human attempting suicides, Ms. Lena Brundin, associate professor of experimental psychiatry at Michigan State University said, "Research has found signs of inflammation in the brains of suicide victims and people battling depression."
