Schizophrenia: An Infection?

Kathryn Patricelli, MA Updated: Nov 15th 2010

We'd like to direct you to a recent article that we read in Discover Magazine titled "The Insanity Virus." Scientists look at Schizophrenia and their research leads them to believe that rather than being a result of bad genes, parenting problems or beginning as a psychological disorder at all, the cause of Schizophrenia is an infection and that the disorder should be looked at as a brain disease.

To read the full article describing their research and conclusions, please click here.
