    It isn't a disease it is an emotion. That emotion can be adjusted by many ways, therapy medications and by facing your own fears and dealing with them one at a time.

    Recent news about mice infected with toxoplasmosis permanently losing their instinctive fear of cats. Tragic for mice; serendipitous for cats.

    Risk-taking behavior can be found in many people. The only 'diseases' that I know may be associated with it are bipolar mania and antisocial personality disorder. However, that behavior is not considered a diagnostic criterion, i.e., it's not an essential component of the illness.

    As jrm said, look at toxoplasmosis. It is known to make women more 'friendly', and men more stupid and prone to taking risks.
