Sensationalist reporting on another garbage human health correlation study. So 1% of the study population without the parasite attempted suicide, and 1.5% of the study population with the parasite did attempt suicide? No causation has been demonstrated. Maybe the suicide-prone population is more likely to get the parasite because they (on average) pay less attention to hygiene after cleaning the litter box?
