schitzophrenia, ms, bipolar may be caused by virus

I thought this was a very good read. There seems to be alot of proof schitzophrenia begins as an autoimmune disease caused by a virus we all Cary. So it causes brain degeneration to the point a person ends up in a state we recognize as schitzophrenia. They also implicated the same virus in ms and other mental disorders.

Huge implications ( and v. positive ) if the research stands.
Is it safe to come out now? Looks to the left...Looks to the right.... :thinking:

Interesting article. I'd heard elsewhere that evolution was as much about combat between cells and viruses than it was about anything Darwin discovered.
If our DNA were an airplane carry-on bag (and essentially it is), it would be bursting at the seams. We lug around 100,000 retro­virus sequences inside us; all told, genetic parasites related to viruses account for more than 40 percent of all human DNA.
Makes you wonder what would happen if they cleaned it out.
