No.. Mad Cow disease is a protein based bacteria, prion, that can't be cooked out.. thats why everyone makes a "fuss" about it

The only way to get it out is by higher tempratures. Much higher than normal cooking or even sterilization(even pasturization). The protein is smaller than a virus and isn't affected in the same way as.. say salmonella is when you cook chicken.

You obviously haven't eaten any meat product cooked by my mother.

I didn't know that meat had blood in it until I met Springer.

I'm almost serious. If it isn't WELL done, it isn't done - traditional Indian Territory cooking creed.

I never knew that COW was used for so many things. If this is allowed to get out of hand you can say goodbye to a lot more than just "Tasty Burgers"!!

I dont think I will ever eat beef again. And I just saw on the news not long ago about how the cattle farmers are making out so good because the sale of beef was up. Guess thats out the _ Wow! This is totally sickening.

Mad Cow is a mutant disease cause by animal flour in beef food. The prion can be transmitted to human to a lethal disease called "syndrom of creusfeld/jacob".

John Titor said something about a Mad Cow deseas eafter it was already public since years. That it will one day come to the USA was just a matter of time, I wish the USA good luck in fighting the desease as it is really crippling economies.
But some people here shocked me about their knowledge about burgers, cows and food in general.

Btw. MCD/CJD also affects sheeps and other animals we make meat of. Theories(I cant remember if it is proofed already) say that the desease is rooted in a desease of sheeps and just jumped to the cows.

Well, I'm probably screwed then. I've eaten meat all my life and if its been undetected in the U.S. for this long, I'm likely a carrier waiting for the dormancy period to end and then cause me a real nasty death.

Terrorist attack??

Think about it.. They want to cripple the American economically.... well this could put a hurt on the USA in a hurry.

Already Japan, the world's top importer of U.S. beef, South Korea, Hong Kong, Australia, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia and Russia have put at least a temporary ban on US beef. Maybe it was a cow smuggled from Canada for this reason.

It could be a big plot. I could even see PETA, pulling a stunt like this... makes you wonder.

There is one thing you're missing. It takes 8 to 10 years before it's detectable or the cows show symptoms. So it may have spread the disease to MANY more cows in the past 8 years.

I just need to go to Google first from now on:

216.239.57.104...:zm4UxVqworQJ:news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/1235525.stm+CJD+incubation+human&hl=en&start=3&ie=UTF-8

That is a Google cache link to the answer. They are estimating 30 years for human incubation!!! So basically we have barely seen the beginning of this?
