Tests have confirmed mad cow disease in a U.S. cow previously cleared of having the brain wasting illness, the Agriculture Department said Friday. It is the second case of mad cow disease in the United States.

Seeme like it is time to starting eating more chicken or pork folks.

Human health was not at risk, Johanns said. The animal was a "downer," meaning it was unable to walk. Such animals are banned from the food supply.

and be on the lookout for "downer" cows. How many 'downer' cows actually make it to the table that we do not know about?

Mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE, occurs when proteins called prions bend into misfolded shapes. They deposit plaque that kills brain cells and leaves behind spongy holes.

over 150 deaths can be attriubuted, but is that all there is? I remember reading something about a Alzhiemers link with BSE. Free-range chickens anyone???? Titor fans rejoice, and pray for that civil war.....
