    "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An Alzheimer's pill that helps slow the brain damage caused by the disease may also protect against the effects of nerve gases and pesticides, U.S. researchers reported on Monday.

    They said the drug, marketed under the name Reminyl and Razadyne, completely protected guinea pigs against the nerve agents soman and sarin, as well as toxic amounts of pesticides."

    In reflection, where do scientists come up with the idea to subject rodents to nerve gases and pesticides?
    I am not saying that protection against the above mentioned, especially pesticides, isn't a good thing. I worked for some time in Agricultural research and was exposed to pesticides on a regular basis. I now have an incurable disease that may have been caused by my exposure. Although it can't be proven.
