No single doctor nor health official involved has stated a conclusive theory. Some are quoted in the piece as being literally “baffled” at what's happening.
Part of it, I would wager, is that many people in India have poorer healthcare access. So whereas this might have been found right at birth in the Netherlands, it took 17 years in India, making it all the more unusual.
Thanks for catching!
This is the basic principle of an allergy shot. But it takes months to a year of weekly shots and doesn’t always work. Other people, myself included, have very mild allergies that can be tempered with the occasional antihistamine. But a cat-based vaccine would definitely make the whole process easier for some!
That would indeed be the real test, and not yet, as far as I know.
A bacteria found in cats probably gave a teen boy schizophrenia! https://gizmodo.com/a-14-year-olds-schizophrenia-like-psychosis-may-have-be-1833419712
gotta get that alliteration bonus, but also what the other guy said

To clarify something here: We normally have a link available for upcoming research, but in this case we didn’t. Now that it’s out, it’s properly linked in the article itself!
For whoever’s genuinely wondering, the CDC considers anything within the top ten causes of death to be a “leading cause” of death. So assuming the study’s conclusions are correct (and the authors have called for more research with better data), it would be perfectly fine to call police violence a leading cause of…
congrats on also pointing out other things kill young men, i guess.
shut up dweeb
They are both contagious! But I don't know if any work has been done looking at whether they came about in a similar way.
I did think about adding a quick aside to head off this kind of comment! But the basic difference is that while HPV and other contagious germs can help cause cancer, those cancers are always still keyed to their specific hosts.
Skepticism’s all well and good!
The only other similar study I referenced looked at older men with ED who ate about a 2/3 cup a day of pistachios. So your *friend* might be in luck!
You don’t think a nurse helping imprison a rape victim is medically induced harm? Shut up.
As the report lays out, the woman was only turned over because she was “illegal.” The nurse might not have even known anything about her experiences. And ideally, she would have gotten support services that could have encouraged her to report what happened without the risk of jail.
Oh, we’re gonna cover that in the near future too!
