According to research from the University of Chicago, the brain parasite toxoplasma gondii could possibly be linked to intermittent explosive disorder (IED). Otherwise known as lose-your-s**t-over-nothing syndrome or road rage, the legit psychiatric condition in adults could be related to infections of toxoplasma gondii.

The brain parasite is said to infect up to one third of the British, cat-loving population and is commonly found in cats and spread to humans through raw meat, contaminated water and unwashed vegetables. Originally thought to be harmless to humans, the parasite is now being linked to schizophrenia and miscarriages, stillbirths and congenital defects in babies for pregnant women.
