Tuberculosis Alert by Mark Purdey - Dispatches from behind the iron curtain of a British 'biohazard'. European livestock farmers dread the day when their cattle succumb to a tuberculosis breakdown. The implications are severe; a ruthless cull of infected cattle and badgers, with all remaining healthy cattle impounded behind an iron curtain of government mandated movement restrictions and red tape. The knock on effects have virtually paralysed small farming businesses into a state of financial melt down. Mark Purdey, 'seeking the truth through science' was a scientist and an organic dairy farm who was not afraid to speak out on subjects that were politically sensitive if he felt there were vested interests and doubts regarding policy. He investigated and wrote about BSE, organophosphates and TB. Sadly he died suddenly in November 2006 but his work remains very relevant.
