All you guys eating beef or four legged meat, see if you're around in 20 years. Thinking of having kids? Don't. You won't be around.
It's like this: Sure, there's a small chance you'll get Mad Cow if you eat meat. But it's cumulative. And you eat meat several times a week. It all adds up. I don't even need to give you guys a shovel.

The disease that is mad cow disease (sorry don't know proper name for it) can lie dormant in your system for 10 years before you actually come down with it. The fact that nobody's looking for it is scary too especially when you think of the consequences and the fact that this cow was accidentally found, had she gotten off the truck and walked to the pen she would never have gotten in with the downers. We should all be more concerned we are feeding this stuff to our children. Japan tests every cow at slaughter, yes it will be more expensive, but I would rather eat less beef and pay more for it than worry about whether what I'm eating is going to kill me.
