Interesting article. Thanks. My friends mom is 96, she takes a ton of pills every day, is mean, crabby to her family and everyone else, and has been so for years, her husband was a pharmacist and she took drugs all her life. It does not make sense. Maybe the tapeworms live a long time and animate some of these humans.

Researchers found tapeworms in mice actually dictate and influence the mice's behavior. Mice infected with tapeworms will actually seek to be eaten by a cat so the tapeworm can continue its life cycle in the cat. The tapeworm takes over the mouses behavior and causes the mice to run into cats to be eaten and not away from the cats as non tapeworm infected mice do.

Tapeworms cause self destructive suicidal behavior in mice, tapeworm infected mice run to the cat to be eaten and not away, that is remarkable.

I wonder how tapeworms dictate, change and control human behavior?
