angry1 Kitty litter linked to women suicides.
Advertisement
A small subset of suicide attempts may be linked to an infection that starts in the litter box. A new study suggests an association between Toxoplasma gondii and suicide attempts among women.

Interesting finding, to be sure, but how does one even begin to test a theory like this? Why in the world would anyone posit that kitty litter could be related to suicide attempts?

As it turns out, about one-third of the population is walking around right now with latent toxoplasma infection. Most people will never know they have it - and most will not attempt suicide as a result of it. But the presence of T. gondii among women who attempted suicide raises interesting questions.

RE: Kitty litter linked to women suicides.
I'm not entirely certain I buy this one. Is it just that more lonely and depressed women turn to cats for company (usually in multiples)? A certain percentage of those will pick up the infection and a certain percentage of them will kill themselves. But, who is to say that they wouldn't have done this otherwise being that they were depressed to begin with? Still, it's worth looking into it.

If a person gets so depressed that they shoot themselves in the head with a gun, the autopsy will not say "Died of depression" It will read "Died of gun shot to the head"

Most sane men will have nothing to do with a woman with more than 2 cats.
And even that is pushing it.

RE: Kitty litter linked to women suicides.
I love all animals, especially Dogs. but i would not keep a pet again. it gets too expensive. you learn to love your animal and then it dies.

could send a depressed person over the edge easily IMO

Its because women with cats are more insane than their dog loving counterparts, who are also insane, just not as goofy as the cat lovers. Very simple actually. Jptdknpa

Agreed, I've been heavily depressed before... although I thought about suicide, I know I could never do it to my family because of problems which can be solved. Problems which were eventually solved. Othertimes it just takes time, but suicide is never an option.

As for the study, not very conclusive imo.
