Petrol fumes and CJD?

Since 1994, Gus Leonisky has been interested by the CJD research and has followed many trails including that of a farmer who had a theory on BSE, went on to get a University degree and organised at his own expense some research programmes on the subject. Nigel and Mark Purdey live in in England. They came to a few startling conclusions... Of course they have been vilified by Pommy authorities who do not believe their research to be valid... Mark Purdey has linked CJD and BSE to a few factors including insecticides (organophosphates) and trace elements in the soils (mainly manganese). These can lead to BSE in cattle and CJD in humans. In his primary study of prions he found that benign prions had some copper atoms while those creating BSE had some manganese atoms. This came from his study of natural environments where CJD, BSE and scrapies were most common in Europe and the trace elements in the soil were deficient in copper and high in manganese... --------------------------- (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Prions — short for proteinaceous infectious particle — are infectious self-reproducing protein structures. Though their exact mechanisms of action and reproduction are unknown, it is now commonly accepted that prions are responsible for a number of previously known but little-understood diseases generally classified under transmissible spongiform encephalopathy diseases (TSEs), including scrapie (a disease of sheep), kuru (found in members of the cannibalistic Foré tribe in Papua New Guinea), Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), Chronic Wasting Disease, Fatal Familial Insomnia (FFI), Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker syndrome (GSS), and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease) (Collinge, 2001). These diseases affect the structure of brain tissue and are all fatal and untreatable.
