Study says eating rare meat can give you road rage

We know some of you love your steak to still be mooing when it hits the plate but what you probably didn't know that eating it "rare" can cause road rage.

New research says the parasitic bug toxoplasma gondii infects half of adults and we catch the bug mostly from handling or eating raw and under-cooked red meat.

Once you catch the bug it causes toxoplasmosis in the brain which can influence your  behavior.

Usually the parasite hangs around for just a few weeks after you get it and the mild, flu-like symptoms are so small some folks don't even notice then the bug goes dormant.

So if you eat your meat "burnt to a crisp" don't go blaming the bug for your bad attitude!
