Re: Mad Cow disease & pesticides (Organophosphate)

Here is a classic "expert" response to the question "Insecticide Causes Mad Cow Disease?" It seems, the experts never have to provide evidence of their views (beliefs'), however, those questioning them simply can never provide sufficient evidence! Any suspicions of a connection due to Organophosphates and their neuro-toxicity is summarily ignored - hardly conducive to a fair scientific inquiry or follow up...

Translation: Gi, if we the "experts" have not discovered it - then it surely can't be worthy of investigation, after all we, ARE the experts - regardless of any outside contrary views and/or data.

Aren't these the smatterings of the self serving peer review process? See the "The Farce of Physics" on how scientific the scientists really are. They can easily put religion to shame!

I'm sorry to say that I believe the organophosphate theory to be nonsense.
Likewise with manganese. There are plenty of other reasons to minimize or
avoid the use of these agents, but "causing" BSE is not one of them.
