Is BSE Caused by Organophosphate Poisoning?(Such as cattle pour ons)
SPEAKER – Mark Purdey
CHAIRMAN – Sir Simon Gourlay
(Ex-President National Farmers Union)
The case for BSE being caused by infected feed has been scientifically discredited. There is no epidemiological or experimental evidence that BSE or new variant CJD can be acquired through eating infected meat. The Purdey theory of organophosphate poisoning elegantly explains all aspects of the BSE epidemic and limited experimental work done so far is completely supportive of BSE being caused by a combination of organophosphate poisoning and mineral imbalances.
The Purdey hypothesis is a politically unacceptable explanation of BSE and therefore it has been deliberately suppressed. This is because the implications of such a theory are so far reaching and not just for the chemical industry. If Purdey is right and that prion disorders (like BSE and nvCJD) are caused by chemical poisoning then this may explain the epidemics we are now seeing of other prion disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, motor neurone disease and Parkinson’s disease.
