New Cases of Mad Cow Disease have been found it two different states.
These cases are baffleing scientest because they say they could not find the spongey lesions trions.
In these two cases experts could not find the spongy lesions that prions cause - these lesions are always found in infected animals. Prions are
usually distributed in a typical fashion in infected animals, this time the distribution was different. The US Department of Agriculture has said the
cases must be treated as typical BSE ones unless science tells us otherwise.
This has not been an epidemic in the past but it does usually kill the people and animals who get infected with it. Hopefully this will be isolated
and a spontaines happening.
