Cats, Gardening & Toxoplasmosis
Dear Doc (or anyone on the forum)

I'm in the process of trying to conceive, but read several articles on the above. I have 2 cats & love gardening, how succeptable will I be to the Toxo parasite & is it only dangerous to pregnant woman as such ? Would it help to wear gardening gloves to avoid touching potentially contaminated soil ?

Please advise a paranoid mom wanna-be ....
