I just saw a quick blurb about this topic on tv the other night. I try to find all the science type shows I can & its difficult with so much garbage we're expected to watch......which I won't.
THE HUMAN GENOME is three billion letters long. About 240 million letters of it, scientists estimate, is viral. Yes, eight percent of human DNA comes from ancient viruses that once infected our ancestors.
Most viral infections are as fleeting as a cold, but two things made the ancient ones unusual: One, these viruses had the special ability to copy themselves into the DNA of their hosts. And two, they sometimes got lucky enough to copy themselves into an egg that became fertilized and grew into a full-fledged adult. So that viral DNA got passed down from generation to human generation as so-called endogenous retroviruses.

Dunno......Canada's laws are a lot stricter than the US.
Haha, theoretically. Hmm, should gun buyers pass a T. gondii test?
That would explain a lot, wouldn't it?

Individuals with a psychiatric disorder involving recurrent bouts of extreme, impulsive anger—road rage, for example—are more than twice as likely to have been exposed to a common parasite than healthy individuals with no psychiatric diagnosis.
In a study involving 358 adult subjects, a team led by researchers from the University of Chicago found that toxoplasmosis, a relatively harmless parasitic infection carried by an estimated 30 percent of all humans, is associated with intermittent explosive disorder and increased aggression.
That was fun, Beanie.

i never got the chance to learn science because i went to a special school that taught only kindergarten never taught any kind of science but iv'e always been interested in science though.
Beware the law of unintended consequences. A fast working bacteria that eats a specific kind of plastic...could end up eating all of it, including that stuff that's still in use.
