Dear friends,
    I am exploring an idea that prion type proteins can be induced in 
fodder plants by organophosphate pesticide and so could be contributing 
to the problems of BSE and JCD we are having. 
   This is only at the idea stage at present so any comments positive, 
negative or whatever would be welcome. Any references to similar work 
would also be welcome.
Thanks for your time,
Martin Collins.
