Owning a cat won’t make you mentally ill, study says

Cats are a primary host of Toxoplasma Gondii (T. Gondii), which is associated with mental health conditions like schizophrenia. That link led researchers to believe raising children in a household with cats could lead to later development of mental illness.
“The message for cat owners is clear: there is no evidence that cats pose a risk to children’s mental health,” Dr. Francesca Solmi, the study’s lead author, said in a news release. “In our study, initial unadjusted analyses suggested a small link between cat ownership and psychotic symptoms at age 13, but this turned out to be due to other factors.”

    Former Female Student Making Allegations Against Gorsuch Has Ties To Obama, Democrats…

    Another Sandra Fluke.
    Jennifer Sisk, a 2016 graduate of the University of Colorado Law School, wrote a scathing letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sunday. In the letter, Sisk detailed her account of Gorsuch’s telling his law students that “many” women manipulate their employer’s maternity benefits after giving birth.
    Sisk is a former political appointee in the Obama administration and also worked as an aide to former Sen. Mark Udall, a Democrat from Colorado.

      The Dems are truly scraping the bottom of the barrel if something he said once about maternity benefits is the worst they can come up with. This is even lamer than Anita Hill’s “scandal” over something Clarence Thomas once said in front of a whole group of people that nobody was bothered about until he was set to become a conservative Supreme Court judge.

      Now watch how we’re supposed to RAGE and FROTH about this … when “the wise Latina” and the lesbian who wouldn’t recuse herself were treated like serious judicial scholars.

    Sesame Street Will Introduce Julia, an Autistic Muppet

    Because autism is a spectrum and not one specific set of traits or challenges, Julia’s character required and will require extensive thought and consideration. “It’s tricky because autism is not one thing, because it is different for every single person who has autism. There is an expression that goes, “If you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism,” explained Ferraro.

    Hillary’s Security Detail Hated Her So Much That They Laughed When She Fell and Broke Her Arm

    “We sort of got the last laugh. It was kind of like payback: You’re treating us like s–t. Hey karma is a b*tch! We were smiling to ourselves,” the agent told The Post on Wednesday.

    But Clinton, who frequently behaved like a diva-in-chief, according to the agent, made it worse by pointing the finger at her detail for the mishap.

    “She blamed us for breaking her elbow, saying it was our fault and we could have prevented that. She’s bad news,” the agent said.

    This reminds me of Soylent Green.

    The abortion chain Carafem, known for brashly advertising a luxurious, spa-like abortion experience, opened another abortion facility earlier this month in Georgia.

    The abortion chain has worked hard to stand out by embracing its work killing unborn babies in abortions with pride. “We want to be really out loud about what we do.”
