Forgot to mention: Jim's hypothesis about the poliomyelitis link to pesticides can be further tested against data from other countries/regions where the historical statistics of pesticide usage/exposure, polio epidemic, and polio vaccine usage can be obtained.  In light of the other criticism I raised about Jim's data on polio, such data from other countries is certainly necessary before jumping to conclusions.
