Note that downer cow is ground up and fed to chickens and pork. When these animals die, they are fed to cows. As Mr. Louthan says, it's a great big
cycle. CJD/BSE was rare once, but since we're feeding these animals other animals it's all up in the food chain, so to speak.
"All vCJD victims to date have had a specific genetic make-up that may make them vulnerable to this disease. About 40% of the population has this
genetic make-up. Research continues to determine the role genetics may play in this disease."
and note the description of the slaughtering process: You cut a cow in half, literally. All the brain gook mixes with water and spreads everywhere. It
doesn't matter that your meat doesn't come close to the brain. As Mr. Louthan says he's a dead man, long gone, it would be "interesting" to note
the occurrence of vCJD in slaughterers.
I mean, this # is scary people. You wanna die like this:
"The first symptoms of CJD typically include memory loss and difficulty keeping balance and walking. As the disease destroys the brain, patients
rapidly progress in a matter of months to difficulty with movement, an inability to talk and swallow and, finally, death." [@ www.nlm.nih.gov...
Man I wonder: Is it harder to become vegetarian or is it harder to die? I guess I'll find out, one way or the other.
