Study Finds "Mad Cow Disease" in Cattle Can Spread Widely in Autonomic Nervous System before Detectable in the Central Nervous System
New pathway for infection reported in The American Journal of Pathology http://www.journals.elsevierhealth.com/ ... tent/press
seems the price of prion poker played by the USDA et al, just keeps going up and up and up.
so, I gather that the BSE 30 month rule is/was and has been, flawed from the beginning, missing many other tissues that hold prion infectivity, thus, loading up not on the cattle, but everything else that consumes meat and meat by-products with the PrP mad cow agent.
so, I gather that the ARS research on BSE and atypical BSE, the study that claimed that the SRM removal would be changed _if_ and _when_ infectivity was found elsewhere. and when might this take place now $$$
a final thought, this should, with all certainty right $$$ since not only in early stage of disease, but in the later stages of disease as well, with such a wide array of muscle and nerve tissues now involved in infectivity with BSE, and since there is not any way that all these prion infected tissues could be cut out of any product, this should bring the CREEKSTONE MAD COW TESTING DEBATE back to the forefront of consumer safety, right ???
not if the usda, oie, and the industry have anything to do with it, I can assure you of that $
