Our question this week was:

Dr. Jon – I thought I heard something on the radio about a link between cats and human schizophrenia? Have you heard anything about this?

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote asking - Is there a link between cats and human schizophrenia? The answer is possibly yes. Earlier this year, a study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry suggested a link between infection with Toxoplasma Gondii, a parasite commonly carried by cats, and schizophrenia. For more information on this study – go to The Possible Link Between Schizophrenia and Cats.
