On behalf of myself and family,
I would like to express my thanks to all
those who have sent tributes in his memory.

additions since then are the tributes to his memory, the message
of thanks from his wife and family and the forthcoming publication of his book,
'Animal Pharm'. - JB Ed.
Mark Purdey's biography and eco-detective journeys to the centre of scientific truth.
Read about the current ecological imbalance of ultra violet radiation,
manganese, copper, organophosphate chemicals, dioxins, geomagnetism, low
frequency infrasound, radar, silver, magnesium molybdenum and
many more factors in our
modern environment. Discover how these prerequisites interact and combine to
bring about some of the mystery free radical based illnesses that blight
our modern times, most particularly, BSE.
|Hi, I'm Mark Purdey and I live on a remote rural ranch on the back of
the Brendon Hills in West Somerset with my wife and eight amazing children who have the habit of suddenly appearing in
unexpected places, including on these pages!
| I have a passion for environmental
science and the arts, music - playing the saxophone, flute and
double bass in Jazz, Funk and Celtic bands.
I would like to introduce you to
my new website (2002) which features the scientific insight that I have gleaned
from twenty years worth of unconventional, eco-detective adventures to
isolated out-backs around the world - select regions where clusters of
modern diseases have suddenly erupted.
By strong reliance on straight forward field observation, local
intelligence and comparative analyses of soils, water, atmospheres,
vegetation, etc, in the disease / disease-free locations, I build up an
overall understanding of the bio-mechanisms at work in a specific
illness. By scanning the scientific scenery of each cluster location, I
attempt to pinpoint the aetiological needle in the causal haystack.
The purpose of these journeys has been to unearth the causal riddle of
various industrially induced conditions, such as Creutzfeldt Jacob
disease, scrapie, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis,
alzheimers disease, myalgic encephalomyelitis, glioma brain tumours, cot
death syndrome, psychoses, teratogenic defects etc.
Although discarded by Establishment bodies, the phenomena of the disease
cluster provides an ideal research tool for identifying the true
environmental causes of a given illness; which, in turn, paves the way
for identifying the best means of eradicating, preventing, and even
curing that disease. But, sadly, the unilateral research direction of
the multinational-ministerial grand alliance is purely designed to
develop the most effective means of suppressing symptoms of disease
through formulation of pharmaceuticals, gene manipulation, etc; Such an
approach fails to deal with the root cause.
My work focuses on the biological impact of the increasing cocktail of
environmental oxidizing agents in our modern environment; eg, ultra
violet radiation, systemic insecticides, low frequency infrasonic
radiation, radar, microwaves, etc. I am studying the oxidative impact
that these agents exert upon various transition metals in the brain -
manganese, silver, etc - and how they are transformed into pathogenic 3+
or 4+ species which carries a lethal oxidative capacity that is capable
of initiating a self perpetuating free radical mediated neuro
My technique of " total ecosystem analyses " has identified
several environmental prerequisites which could be involved in the
origins of some diseases , most particularly my discovery of high levels
of silver or manganese in combination with low levels of copper in
spongiform diseases. I have also observed molybdenum and serotonergic
toxicity in multiple sclerosis, silver toxicity in glioma tumours, a
high manganese/ low magnesium induced mutation in Machado-Josephs
The political perspectives of my work first came into the news in 1984,
when I successfully quashed the UK government's compulsory warble fly
eradication scheme in the high courts; thus exempting my farming business
from treating my organic cattle with high doses of
"systemic" organo-phosphate insecticides.
|The chemicals derived
from military nerves gases, which, amongst a myriad of toxicological
effects, disturb the crucial balance of metals in the brain. I believed
that BSE reared its ugly head in the UK cattle herd as a direct legacy
of this exclusive "high dose" UK government mandate.
I have found myself at odds with the reductionist mindset of UK
government "experts" ever since, and consequently found myself
subjected to a steady derisory trickle of ridicule and dirty tricks.
Like many heretics before me, I have found myself forced into operating
as an "underground scientist"; tramping a lone journey to the
Ends of the Earth, sampling exotic corners of Colorado, Iceland,
Calabria, Slovakia, Japan, Australia, etc, where high incidence clusters
of various neuro degenerative diseases have erupted.
Set against a backdrop of flamboyant and sometimes threatening
scientific scenery, my journey has spontaneously taken me up many
surprise avenues. With limited funds, I often find myself sleeping rough
and thrown into the hands of fate, bumping into a series of unusual
characters who end up providing the crucial evidence/assistance in
establishing the key milestones of the mission - a Hell's Angel, an
Aboriginal elder, a Slovak 'au pair' girl, the Icelandic government's
chief vet, a taxidermist, Amish farming family........
The BSE debacle represents the mere tip of the iceberg of Establishment
ineptitude and socio-eco-irresponsibility. It represents a clear cut
example of the far reaching extent to which the 'talons' of
multinational monopolies can stretch to protect their global master plan
on the fast expanding 'Health and Food chain Industry'.
Can we afford to
allow this insidious mode of food chain control to continue unregulated
and unabated ?
There is an increasing groundswell of public unease concerning the
unknown effects that are polluted environment is exerting on our health
and long term survival. Public suspicion is mounting towards the
transparent array of so called independent scientific experts and
medical spin doctors who are called to advise governments and address
the public on all aspects of the impact of chemical pollutants on our
This website returns us to the lessons that can be learnt from the
intuitive wisdoms of the people on the "ground" . At the
same time it will alert us to both the insidious and unscientific
techniques which the incestuous clique of official experts employ
to marginalize and discredit those who dissent from the totalitarian
line. It will show us the ill conceived basis on which the positions of
the Establishment are truly based, along with the woeful degree of
administrative complacency over issues which, in most cases, are matters
of life and death for normal people.
