Low dose pesticides

Here's an interesting discussion from the BBC's Farming Today This Week programme. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio4_aod.shtml?radio4/fttw

You hear a contributor, a lady with MS, describing a cluster of people, 5 in all, from a small village in the South of England each of whom contracted MS. She attributes this to the use and drift of pesticides locally.

Balls

Maybe I'm being over-sensitive but would women really want their brains repaired with stem-cells from testicles?

NNZ-2566

This is one of the drugs in the pipeline at Neuren. It is a neuro-protective drug and pre-clinical results look promising. I think it has just entered into Phase 1 human trials.
