Italians have found a new form of mad cow which closely resembls the vCJD variant found in humans. Mad Cow is caused by mutant proteins called prions. Both diseases cause literal holes to form in the brain.

"Monaco said in an interview via e-mail that he believes the incidence could be as high as 5 percent among cattle with mad cow symptoms."

Also interesting, is that scientists in Europe have studied the indcidence of vCJD for the last decade and have found no change. But, they fail to note that bovine cow feed is a relatively recent thing and that the disease takes 10 to 20 years to develop.

The more that this stuff about Mad Cow keeps coming up the more i tend to lean towards believing in John Titor. Things just cant be this coincidental, can they?

John Titor doesn't mean [poop]. All these aliens, all these conspiracies, all the lies, all the cover-up mean just one thing: Be Prepared.

John Titor claimed to have predicted the future, but he didn't actually tell you to much of what happened. It's the same case, whether he's right or wrong: Be Prepared.

Another interesting fact is the occurance of mad cow disease crossing species, such as the herds of sheep in Virginia.

These herds in Virginia were on record long before the incident with the mad cow in Washington State.

This is some scary stuff. As you might know, the mad cow scare has been discussed by ATS for some time. Here are a few good links for reading.

Finding a strain closer to CJD is definately a worry. It is still not known how the disease mutates.
