Re: Mad Cow Disease
HieronymusBloggs, if they were slaughtering properly, the cow chow wouldn't have been tainted with an extremely high concentration of prions. In which case, no Mad Cow Disease. And I (and anybody else who ate meat in the UK in that timeframe) wouldn't be in danger of coming down with vCJD.
I wonder if rich folks eating more meat makes it more likely for them to become infected. Would certainly explain the insanity in Westminster these days ... not that you lot's ruling class was ever considered to be particularly normal. "Eccentric" is merely being kind.
