Another toxoplasmosis post....
There was nice article by Carl Zimmer in the New York Times in 2006 describing some recent research that uncovered how Toxoplasmosis is able to move around inside the host body so quickly. Zimmer is the author of Parasite Rex, which is well worth a read if you'd like to know more about parasites and also has a blog called The Loom where he frequently posts about parasites and many other topics concerning biology and evolution.
