Wow, I knew that Toxoplasma did things like that, but not to that degree! There are quite a few parasites that can alter human functioning/behavior, and thankfully, ways of expelling them from our bodies so that we don't experience their destructive effects...

...I've been wanting to write an article that touches upon similar subjects, but it will probably be awhile until I get to it as I have a lot on my plate right now. In the meantime, I would like to share the following...

Thank you for sharing! All of these terms were new to me and I enjoyed looking into them. I would agree that the germ/terrain theories complement each other.
