ARE THE ZOMBIES COMING?
the ever-perplexing express created a story about zombies caused by brain-invading organisms being on the verge of existence. they're not, they don't, they won't. ignore
this story was in episode 11 #zombie #toxoplasma #mouse #cat #urine
the error bar says
the Express reports that ZOMBIES are only a single parasite away
well that's the story. no link to the science is provided, but it seems to relate to a 2013 study & blog post in which mice infected with a toxoplasma pathogen were less wary of cat urine than uninfected mice
i don't know why this is in the news, i really don't. but it's a pattern
and, er, we're not going to be reporting the Express any more - they're barred
