The article reports on the reaction of campaigners against the use of organophosphorous dips to a document published in the website of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) of Great Britain which acknowledges that such substances are hazardous by inhalation. Retired farmer Brenda Sutcliffe states that she finds it unbelievable that the document containing such health warnings has not been issued to every sheep farmer in the country. Farmer Margaret Percival questions why it has taken years for HSE to admit the health risks of sheep dipping.
