Cat Parasite Causes Changes in Human Behaviour

I read an article in MX Magazine last night about how a Parasite from cats can cause changes in human behaviour.

This site has the abstract of one of the papers written about the topic. Given that between 20% and 80% (depending on country) of the population are infected with this parasite, the results are a bit alarming! (Especially for Men, where all the effects are negative). Following the Related Articles, I also found this paper that suggests there is a link between the parasite and Schizophrenia.

This over-simplified article gives a very rough idea of the issue.
