"If you just take five of the victims from New Jersey that ate at the track most recently, two were out of 100 administrative employees and three were out of 1,000 season-pass holders. So out of that population of 1,100 people, we should see one case of CJD every 909 years."
She began searching obituaries and identified 18 people she believes died of CJD from 1993 to 2004 and had eaten regularly at the same restaurant at the now-closed racetrack.
She proved, using probability theory, that a cluster of this size should never occur in one geographic region. This case was definitely a cluster, and most probably occurred by humans eating contaminated beef.
While Skarbek thought this was a disease cluster, the CDC said no, that seven deaths (later to be 18) is still within the norm of one in a million. This was sporadic CJD and, thus, no in-depth investigation.
By contrast, the British track down every report of sporadic CJD because that strict surveillance is how they discovered variant CJD, the type that is caused by mad cow.

I read that a Researcher was able to reverse Alzheimer's, Lou Gehrig's, Parkinson's and Huntington's Disease simply by massive daily doses of some well-known ,easily accessible antibiotics, over three to nine months. The root cause of all four Syndromes is a spirochaete from Deer Ticks ( probably all ticks, now). The Researcher was summarily drummed out of the AMA and the American Academy of Sciences , tarred and feathered and then run out of mainstream Medicine on a pole for publishing his results. The NIH won't admit they are wrong and are leaving the above named diseases go on ,unchecked. Global Warming has allowed new strains of the bacterium into the ticks since 1973.
