Milking Mad Cow Disease

By Robert Cohen, NotMilk.com

The New Year began with a bang for Mad Cow Disease research. For years, I've been presenting a geometric proof that the medical community has previously rejected. I've argued:

If: Human blood can transfer the infectious Mad Cow Disease agent (Prion) from one individual to another via transfusion;

If: One is prohibited from donating blood if one has visited England during the Mad Cow Disease scare;

If: A cow filters 10,000 liters of blood through her udder each day to feed her calf (and human calves);

If: The proteins in cow's milk are blood proteins;

Then: Mad Cow Disease from infected cows can be passed from bovine to human through her milk.

Here's the real science as contained in the January, 2011 issue of the Journal of Virology:

Abstract

"Prions are misfolded proteins that are infectious and naturally transmitted, causing a fatal neurological disease in humans and animals.

"Prion shedding routes have been shown to be modified by inflammation in excretory organs, such as the kidney. Here, we show that sheep with scrapie and lentiviral mastitis secrete prions into the milk and infect nearly 90% of naïve suckling lambs. Thus, lentiviruses may enhance prion transmission, conceivably sustaining prion infections in flocks for generations.

"This study also indicates a risk of prion spread to sheep and potentially to other animals through dietary exposure to pooled sheep milk or milk products."
