Re: Mad Cow Disease

if they were slaughtering properly, the cow chow wouldn't have been tainted with an extremely high concentration of prions.

To my mind, the slaughtering practices are a secondary issue. There's a more fundamental problem that cows were being fed to other cows.

Even as someone who is very much towards the carnivore end of the omnivore spectrum, but think that the idea of forced cannibalism among livestock bred for food is pretty repugnant.
