Dr Oz: Mental Disorders From Infections
There’s a new book that is offering shocking science arguing that you can actually catch mental illness from some types of infections. The book Dr Oz was alluding to is “Infectious Madness” by Harriet A. Washington, an award-winning medical journalist. More research is needed to determine whether microorganisms can trigger disorders like schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, and anorexia. They’re all conditions that were previously only attributed to genetics and chemical imbalances or environmental stressors.
