British scientists say toxoplasmosis parasite may trigger the development of schizophrenia and bipolar disorders. The team from the University of Leeds shows the parasite may play a role in the development of the disorders by affecting the production of dopamine -- the chemical that relays messages in the brain controlling aspects of movement, cognition and behavior. Toxoplasmosis, which is transmitted through cat feces -- and can be found on unwashed vegetables as well as raw or undercooked...
