Cat poop and schizophrenia

"Unpromising as this sounds, the symptoms of toxoplasmosis are generally mild to nonexistent in adults, which is good, because roughly a third of all humans are infected, with the rate in some tropical countries approaching 100 percent."

The Straight Dope

Part of this article is about the hypothesis that parasites in cat poop infect rats, which get toxoplasmosis, which creates an LSD-like drug, which makes the rats hallucinate, thus making it easier for cats to catch them.

It's all the great circle of life.
