There is a disturbing f ixation on a single virus, the poliovirus, being the cause of the disease Polio, Meanwhile tens of thousands of cases of non-poliovirus Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) are on the rise. The poliovirus is but one of many types of enterovirus that will cause paralysis in the presence of the appropriate toxic co-factors. The evidence that organochlorine pesticides are co-factors in multiple neurological disorders, not just AFP, is unequivocal. Pesticides are implicated in diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. There is more than one family of pesticides causing toxicity problems for humans, but DDT use is a big offender, but not as big as our myopic blindness to the actual etiology and pathology of the many neurological disorders that plague us. It is simply beyond reason as it could jeopardize the survival of the human race.
