BBC: Cat allergies 'could be blocked'
Scientists say they have developed a technique which could prevent allergies caused by cats.
Wouldn't it be far easier—and more environmentally friendly—simply to prevent cats?
New Scientist (28-Apr-2001): Every year in Britain, pet cats kill about 120 million birds and mammals—and about 6 million reptiles and amphibians. Thanks to feeding by humans, this predator has achieved densities that no natural ecosystem could support, to the detriment of wildlife.
Aren't cats one form of bio-terrorism we can actually do something about? Put a solution to the real cat problem in your manifesto, Messrs. Blair, Kennedy or (no, really) Howard, and you'll get my vote.
Go on, you cowards. I dare you!
