Debunking Toxoplasma gondii fears

1 post / 0 new

Tom ran a segment about the study done showing many suicides related to Toxoplasma gondii from cats.

Here's just a segment from the article at the link below that debunks the study:

Never mind the fact that cat feces contaminated with Toxoplasma gondii don’t even begin shedding the parasite until at least 24 hours after they leave the cat’s body -- so if you clean the litter box daily, you don’t have to worry about being exposed.

Never mind that even cats infected with T. gondii only shed the parasite for a few days in their entire lives. And please, never mind that if your cat lives indoors only, the chance that she’s infected is infinitesimally small.

You need to know this... Support for Donald Trump's campaign is still growing nationally, and in early primary states, but he's not just gaining support in early primary states. A new poll from Florida shows that Trump is leading Jeb by 6 percentage points - and he's leading Rubio by 16 points.
