Gases and chemicals such as those used in pesticides, crop sprays, weed control, etc. are implicated in a wide variety of illnesses such as Parkinson's disease and hoof and mouth disease (CJD). The Sun can help.

496 Parkinson's disease patients at the Stanford University Medical School were compared with 541 people who did not have the disease. It was found that exposure to home and garden pesticides notably increases the chance of getting Parkinson's.
    People exposed to insecticides ('cide' means to kill) in the home were at 70% greater risk to develop Parkinson's.
    Herbicides and pesticides are advised to be used only when absolutely necessary, when no alternative exists with as little exposure as possible.
    Neurological diseases are increasing. The exact reasons why need to be found and action taken.

Audubon Magazine reports in August, 2000 issue that the number of chickadees in south central Alaska that have deformed beaks (twice as long as normal)  has risen from 3 to 400 in 9 years.
    The problem is that the bird beaks are not aligning. the birds have difficulty eating and cleaning themselves because of this.
    Bill deformities have also appeared among 15 other bird species.
    The Biological Science Centre of the U.S.A. Geological Survey in Alaska is investigating and feels pretty certain that the main culprit is perhaps a pesticide contaminant.
