PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email info@biomedcentral.com, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Not all mice are created equal!

In spite of the fact that mice and men are really different, I cannot agree with article's conclusion, that sounds: "It is concluded from the present work that chronic exposure to either the leaded or the unleaded gasoline vapours impaired the levels of monoamine neurotransmitters and other biochemical parameters in different brain areas and modulated several behavioural aspects related to aggression in rats". In fact, there is a fundamental bias in such as study: like all others creatures, mice are not created equal! Whatever environmental risk factor can act exclusively when a specific INHERITED Real Risk is present, as it happens in diabetes, CVD, cancer (1-10). This Inherited Real Risk can be bedside recognized due to the relative, local, microcirculatory remodelling, characterized by newborn-pathological, type I, sub-type a) oncological , and b) aspecific, Endoarteriolar Blocking Devices (8).
