UK Independent Researcher believes that insecticides triggered Mad Cow disease, but his chemical poisoning theory was unpopular:
Did An Insecticide Trigger Mad Cow/BSE In UK?

" . . . A similar but accelerated mechanism could be driving BSE. ICI's Phosmet organophosphate warble fly insecticide -applied on the backs of
animals along the spinal column, similarly degrades prions. "Systemic versions of the insecticide are designed to make the entire cow carcass toxic
to warble fly," explains Purdey. "Unfortunately it's toxic to prions too -especially those prions located just millimeters from the point of
The damaged prions are then ready to react with manganese in animal feed, or manganese sprayed on land or in mineral licks -to become the driving
force of BSE neurodegeneration. Purdey says manganese-tipped prions set off lethal chain reactions that neurologically burn through the animal. .
The entire article also discusses how this can result in neurological diseases such as Alzheimers and CJD in humans later in life. Also, head lice
medications would have the same effect in humans. Read the article to find out the signficance of copper and manganese in the diet. One can
neutralize the damaged prion, one can set off a nasty chain.
And, another Mark Purdy article on BSE is at his website, discussing the effects of soil mineral depletion in the food chain and thus in cattle:
