New Mad Cow Disease Case Confirmed

A case of BSE, most commonly known as mad cow disease, has been confirmed in a dairy cow in California. This is the nation's fourth confirmed case since 2003. The USDA says this case poses no threat to the public because the cow never entered the food chain.

I don't think that this new case of BSE should surprise those who are informed about the unethical practices of animal-based agriculture. BSE infects a cow when the animal has been fed infected feed containing the remains of the brain of a cow with this disease. In the U.S., it is supposedly illegal to feed the brain and spinal chord of cows back to cows; however, the little surveillance that exists over animal-agriculture makes it hard to know what regulations are being enforced or not. What we know for certain is that animal agriculture continues to engage in very unnatural practices such as making cows, who are herbivores, into carnivores and even cannibals. Animal agriculture poses much risk to public health.
