Cat parasite threatens millions around the world in schizophrenia!

The researchers warned of the spread of parasites carried by cats and shared with billions of people on Earth, may lead to schizophrenia.

But the new study, the largest of its kind to date, found that the parasite can increase the risk of schizophrenia or schizophrenia by 50%.The parasite bears the name "Toxoplasma gondii" (T. gondii), which can be transmitted to humans by touching cat litter and eating uncooked meat, usually harmless.
There are already unusual links between the parasite and behavior of change of mind, such as risk and depression and others.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen analyzed data from more than 80,000 participants in a Danish study on blood donation, which recorded 2591 participants in psychiatric cases.
The researchers, led by Dr. Christopher Solven Burgdorf, followed the effects of antibody antibodies for the presence of the parasite Tyxoplasma gondii.
About one-third of the population, according to the University of Chicago, is believed to have been infected with parasites, including 60 million in the United States and 350,000 in the United Kingdom.
The researchers found the parasite in the blood of a quarter of the study participants, and also found that 61% of them carry CMV, which also showed evidence of impaired cognitive abilities of participants.
The parasite was not associated with any other psychiatric disease, but the cytomegalovirus was associated with the risk of nervous disorder and stress associated with physical disorder and disorder, a form of mental illness manifested in the form of physical pain, as well as suicide or attempt to do so.The results showed that people with Tyxoplasma gondii were 50 per cent more likely to develop schizophrenia. This confirms that ticoplasma gondii has a significant impact on the condition, if not a key factor in schizophrenia.
The researchers explained that "Tyxoplasma gondii" may disrupt the work of amino acid in the body called "Tryptophan", and this leads to the secretion of large amounts of metabolites such as kinurinic acid, which was previously found to be high in people with schizophrenia.
The results of this study are added to a growing body of evidence that the parasite "Tyxoplasma gondii" is associated with peculiar cognitive effects in humans.
