Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, the cattle-borne sickness commonly known as Mad Cow Disease, first appeared in America in 2003 - NOT! Experts, such as Michael Greger, MD, Mad Cow Coordinator for the Organic Consumers Association and the Chief BSE Investigator for Farm Sanctuary, states that it may have been in the U.S. since the 1960ís! It is diagnosed in humans as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) and may the source of the enormous increase in the number of Alzheimer's cases since 1979.
Authorities have assured us that the outbreak is isolated, quarantined, and poses no danger to the general public - NOT TRUE! This disease continues to pour into our food supply in the form of contaminated animal feed.
Millions of Americans have already been exposed to the infectious proteins known to cause Mad Cow Disease through years of eating contaminated beef.
The epidemic of this disease is also spreading like wildfire through the nation's deer and elk population and poses a threat to hunters and venison eaters.
The real source of cattle mutilations over the last decades is likely part of a sampling program designed to study the extent of this deadly disease in the nation's livestock.
