    I think it's more because it is in essence research on the crazy cat lady.

    That it's got a sninister mind-controlling undertone doesn't help.

    On a second thought, it was probably voted in by the people infected by toxo, subtly infulencing their hosts' behaviour to stave off further research that could lead to compromising its dominion over the human race.

    The next milestone would be to win both the Noble and the IgNoble prize for the same work.
