Mad Cow Disease spreads for one reason....the meat industry, when cows die, they chop them up and feed them to the other cows. So, if one cow has it
and dies, it spreads to the rest that eat it. There's no conspiracy here. Just stupidity! and of course Capitalism. What a great way to save money
on food for the cows...feed the dead ones to them....mmmm, yummy!!
Some human tribes that still practice cannibalism, also have been known to spread this same disease within their tribes. Some of these tribes believe
that when a tribe member dies, if they eat his/her brain, they get to share that persons wisdom. But, in fact, they just get to share their diseases.
This of course poses the question, if a tribe member has some disease which puts them in a vegetative state and then they die, can a tribe member
that's a vegetarian eat them?
