  • What causes BSE, CJD & MS? Organic Farmer Mark Purdey on Organophosphates (2001)

    Mark Purdey and Organophosphate (Film/Video, i-Contact, September 2001) Organic livestock farmer Mark Purdey was ordered in the 1980's, along with all cattle and dairy farmers in the UK, to treat his cows with an organophosphate pesticide 'Phosmet' manufactured by I.C.I.. Organophosphates are derived from military nerve gas and a systemic treatment (the chemical enters the entire internal system of the cow) would undermine his organic principles so Mark refused to treat. "If Phosmet is proven to have caused BSE, the worldwide use of organophosphates (OPs) could be put into jeopardy, costing the chemical industry billions. The government know more than they're letting on. They've stuck to the scrapie theory to placate people and give the impression they've got it under control." Mark P...

  • Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease

    Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease (/ˈkrɔɪtsfɛlt ˈjɑːkoʊb/ KROITS-felt YAH-kohb) or CJD is a degenerative neurological disorder that is incurable and invariably fatal. CJD is at times called a human form of mad cow disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy or BSE). However, given that BSE is believed to be the cause of variant Creutzfeldt--Jakob (vCJD) disease in humans, the two are often confused. CJD is caused by an agent called a prion. Prions are misfolded proteins that replicate by converting their properly folded counterparts, in their host, to the same misfolded structure they possess. The disease leads to rapid neurodegeneration, causing the brain tissue to develop holes and take a more sponge-like texture. This video is targeted to blind users.

Mark Purdey and Organophosphate (Film/Video, i-Contact, September 2001) Organic livestock farmer Mark Purdey was ordered in the 1980's, along with all cattle and dairy farmers in the UK, to treat his cows with an organophosphate pesticide 'Phosmet' manufactured by I.C.I.. Organophosphates are derived from military nerve gas and a systemic treatment (the chemical enters the entire internal system of the cow) would undermine his organic principles so Mark refused to treat. "If Phosmet is proven to have caused BSE, the worldwide use of organophosphates (OPs) could be put into jeopardy, costing the chemical industry billions. The government know more than they're letting on. They've stuck to the scrapie theory to placate people and give the impression they've got it under control." Mark Purdey, Organic Dairy Farmer, Exmoor. "If the government are found liable for BSE - by enforcing organophosphate treatment - the payout could break the economy." Tom King (Purdey's MP) Leigh Day & Co are the legal firm Mark mentions with reference to the 1988 Camelford Water Disaster 30 minites in: http://www.911forum.org.uk/board/viewtopic.php?t=21090 Whoever the monkeys have been at the top of the tree, the Party line has stayed the same. Mad Cow Disease came about by feeding scrapie infected meat and bone meal to cows. But one West Country farmer has a different theory. One that the authorities and the pesticide producers have gone to great to lengths to silence. Between the late 70's and 1982 British farmers were forced by law to treat their cows for warble fly with a pour on organophosphate called phosmet - organophosphates are derived from nerve gas formulated by nazi chemists during World War II. Big business soon realised its profit potential and, post war, it was exclusively marketed as an agricultural pesticide by ICI, and later their cunningly renamed subdivision Zeneca. Seeing how his own organically reared cows never developed BSE, but phosmet-treated cattle brought onto the farm did, Somerset dairy farmer Mark Purdey refused to treat his herd. In 1984 MAFF took him to the High Court, but lost. "Before 1982 farmers could treat warbles with an organic ground-up root compound called Derris. This was outlawed, so they could sell more organophosphates," said Purdey. Organophosphates, used to treat headlice in school children, have been implicated as a potential cause of Gulf War Syndrome. Purdey managed to alleviate symptoms in a BSE infected cow by injecting oxime, an antidote to pesticide poisoning. The cure was never completed as MAFF turned up and destroyed the cow. Unconvinced by the accepted cause of BSE and CJD, Purdey set about studying how disease clusters reflected OP usage. He found Britain, the only country enforcing phosmet use, to have the highest rate of disease. Ireland had some BSE, but OP use was voluntary, and given at a lower dose. Brittany (France) began to develop BSE following an enforced phosmet trial, and human new variant CJD was clustered in Kent's Wield Valley, where hop and top fruit growth gets saturated with organophosphates. Agitated by Purdey's discoveries, the pesticide industry hit back. The dubiously named National Office of Animal Health (NOAH), a lobby group representing the UK animal medicine industry, whose membership reads like a Downing St dinner party invite list of extremely dodgy chemical interests - including Bayer, Monsanto, Novartis, Pfizer, Roche, Schering-Plough etc - published documents discrediting Purdey's work. NOAH produced an independent expert, Dr David Ray, for the BSE Inquiry, who turned out to be receiving funding from Zeneca for his Medical Research Council toxicology unit. "I don't think this affected my judgement," Ray told SchNEWS. "You may not believe it, but I didn't realise Zeneca produced phosmet at the time." Hmmm. In March 1996 - one week before the UK government admitted to a link between BSE and new variant CJD - Zeneca sold the phosmet patent to a PO Box company in the Arizona desert. As Ray said: "Zeneca are not keen to be sued." http://www.cultureshop.org/details.php?code=PURDEY For a more in depth view of this story and the full dirt on David Ray and the 'intellectual corruption' that's rife in the research and licensing of veterinary medicines see www.squall.co.uk

They first came to public attention in the mid 1980s in the form of the BSE epidemic in the United Kingdom. BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) is a prion disease in cattle. Tissue from infected animals may have contaminated cattle feed, leading to the silent spread of the BSE epidemic. There is also a theory that BSE came from feed contaminated with scrapie, the long established sheep prion disease. Inevitably, concern over whether BSE could pass to humans mounted. In humans the best known of the prion diseases is Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), which reportedly affects around one person per million per year. In the United States this translates to 250-300 new cases per year. It is well known that CJD is very difficult to diagnose leading to speculation that the one case per million report may be incorrect. Most of the cases are "classical" or "sporadic" CJD (sCJD), occurring for no, as yet, known reason. The sporadic form accounts for approximately 85% of the cases, the familial form approximately 15%. There have also been a few cases which have occurred from contamination via medical procedures; this type is known as iatrogenic or Acquired CJD. Finally over the last few years, another type of Acquired CJD called variant (vCJD) has been identified in young people. CJD has been linked to ingestion of beef tainted with BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy), most cases have occurred in the United Kingdom." -- Information Provided by: http://www.cjdfoundation.org/about-cjd

And it's a story of his mother's (Christine Lord) relentless search for answers, as she tries to find out who killed her son (Andrew Black). *** Further informarion on variant CJD Inside Out looks at the rise of Variant CJD, the symptoms and the support available for those caring for or mourning the loss of loved ones from the disease. Variant CJD Variant CJD is a form of transmissible dementia and differs from other forms of CJD. It has received a lot of media attention over recent years, but has been around for much longer. Early 1920s CJD is first recognised by two German neurologists Creuzfeldt and Jakob, the namesakes of the disease. Following decades It is a rare disease with an estimated UK occurrence of 30-50 cases per year. Dec 1984 Cow number 133 on Stent farm Sussex becomes the first confirmed victim of BSE the animal strain of CJD. Feb 1985 Cow 133 dies. Nov 1986 BSE is first formally identified by the Central Veterinary Laboratory. April 1988 The Government establishes the Southwood committee to look into BSE. It concludes that BSE is probably spread in animal feed. May 1990 Chief Medical Officer says beef is safe to eat. July 1993 100,000th case of BSE in Britain. May 1995 First death from Variant CJD. March 1996 Government announces suspected link between BSE and the human equivalent CJD . The EU announces worldwide export ban on all British beef. March 1998 A public inquiry into the origin and spread of BSE and CJD opens in London. Jan 2000 Claire Mcvey, age 15, dies of Variant CJD. August 2002 92 deaths in Britain to date from definite Variant CJD . 22 deaths from probable Variant CJD. Symptoms Although symptoms are diverse across patients, a number of similarities have been found when sufferers' brain were examined under a microscope. According to the Crentzfelt-Jakob Support Network, most had lost nerve cells in the brain leading to a spongy appearance. There are many symptoms of Variant CJD, which can broadly be split into two categories... Physical symptoms: Unsteadiness on feet Development of uncontrollable jerky movements Progressive stiffness of the limbs Incontinence Mental symptoms: The progressive loss of mental abilities Mood swings Loss of awareness of surroundings The incubation period for the disease is years rather than weeks or months. Therefore, the symptoms get progressively worse over time. Medicine According to the Crentzfelt-Jakob Support Network, most people with CJD die within six months. But in about 10 per cent of cases it can last between two and five years. At present, there is no known cure for CJD despite considerable, ongoing research. There are some medicines which make the last few weeks easier for sufferers. Source of information: http://www.bbc.co.uk/insideout/southwest/series1/claire-mcvey.shtml

BSE has a long incubation period, about 30 months to 8 years, usually affecting adult cattle at a peak age onset of four to five years, all breeds being equally susceptible. In the United Kingdom, the country worst affected, more than 180,000 cattle have been infected and 4.4 million slaughtered during the eradication program. The disease may be most easily transmitted to human beings by eating food contaminated with the brain, spinal cord or digestive tract of infected carcasses. However, it should also be noted that the infectious agent, although most highly concentrated in nervous tissue, can be found in virtually all tissues throughout the body, including blood. In humans, it is known as new variant Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease (vCJD or nvCJD), and by October 2009, it had killed 166 people in the United Kingdom, and 44 elsewhere[5] Between 460,000 and 482,000 BSE-infected animals had entered the human food chain before controls on high-risk offal were introduced in 1989. A British inquiry into BSE concluded that the epizootic was caused by cattle, who are normally herbivores, being fed the remains of other cattle in the form of meat and bone meal (MBM), which caused the infectious agent to spread. There are studies indicating that the cause of BSE may be from the contamination of MBM from sheep with scrapie that were processed in the same slaughterhouse. The epidemic was probably accelerated by the recycling of infected bovine tissues prior to the recognition of BSE. The origin of the disease itself remains unknown. The infectious agent is distinctive for the high temperatures at which it remains viable; this contributed to the spread of the disease in the United Kingdom, which had reduced the temperatures used during its rendering process. Another contributory factor was the feeding of infected protein supplements to very young calves. This first reported case in North America was in December 1993 from Alberta, Canada. Another case reported later in May 2003. The first known U.S. occurrence came in December of the same year though it was later confirmed that it was a cow of Canadian origin and imported to the U.S. Canada announced two additional cases of BSE from Alberta in early 2005. In June 2005 Dr. John Clifford, chief veterinary officer for the United States Department of Agriculture animal health inspection service confirmed a fully domestic case of BSE in Texas. Dr. Clifford would not identify the ranch, calling that "privileged information." The 12 year old animal was alive at the time when Oprah Winfrey raised concerns about cannibalistic feeding practices on her show which aired April 16, 1996.

The restrictions, set to be imposed throughout the European Union, are more stringent than those introduced by Britain in 1996 following the establishment of a probably link between the disease, also known as BSE, and the lethal human condition variant CJD. The existing ban on meat and bonemeal (MBM) feed for cattle could be extended to all other animals including pigs, chickens and pets, and feed containing fish meal and chicken remains could also be banned. Monday's meeting comes after panic in France, where BSE cases are rising and four human victims of vCJD have been identified, and Germany, which has just reported its first infected cow. Britain's Agriculture Minister Nick Brown on Sunday said he was prepared to accept the proposed Europe-wide controls on beef production, which go further than British scientists have so far deemed necessary. He stressed that action had to be taken at an EU-wide level as unilateral national bans would not be effective. The feeding of MBM to cows has been blamed for spreading BSE. Its use for ruminants has been banned across the EU since 1994, but it had remained in use for pigs and poultry. The EU is not recommending a blockade on French beef exports, such as that imposed on Britain for more than three years when its first BSE outbreak was discovered. This has angered British beef traders, who feel that all their efforts to improve their industry will be undone if beef from affected countries is not banned. SOUNDBITE: "We know in the meat trade that there has been all sorts of beef coming in from possibly Germany and Holland especially and we understand now through this latest problem that French beef has been coming in through those channels as far as I'm concerned that should be totally banned. We've got the safest beef in the world now in this country. Why jeopardise that by bringing this other beef in?" SUPER CAPTION: John Absalom, Deputy Chairman, Smithfield Tenants' Association SOUNDBITE: "Until the abattoirs on the continent are doing the same sort of thing as England, if they can get the cow meat out of their trade which we've not had in since our regulations were introduced, then you're beginning to suffer again." SUPER CAPTION: Colin West, Smithfield meat trader SOUNDBITE: (English) "It occurs to me that the only people that carry out the directives put out by Brussels are the British. The other 14 nations look at the EU directives and say 'Oh yeh they're nice' and push them to one side, and we go on with it. Now we've decimated our cattle herds..."

French/Nat The families of two French victims of the brain-wasting Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease have filed a legal suit in a French court charging that authorities in France, Britain and Europe did not act quickly enough to stamp out B-S-E in cattle. So called 'Mad cow disease', or bovine spongiform encephalopathy, has been linked to a variant strand of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The spongiform diseases eat holes in the brains of victims, and as yet there is no known cure. A 100-page dossier accusing Britain of causing the infection of two French victims of the human form of mad cow disease was filed on Friday to investigating magistrates in Paris' county court. The suit alleges that Laurence Duhamel, who died last February aged 36, and 19-year-old Arnauld Eboli, who is alive but very ill, were victims of poisoning and involuntary homicide. The filing of the suit is expected to result in the appointment of an investigating magistrate who will lead inquiries into the responsibility of the British, French and European authorities for the spread of variant C-J-D in France. The case could result in Government ministers from both sides of the Channel being called to give evidence, following the example of the H-I-V-contaminated blood scandal of the 1980s, which saw several French ministers in court. So far, there have just been three reported cases of C-J-D in France - two of those have died. In Britain, where an outbreak of mad cow disease was first detected in the late 1980s, around 80 people have died from the human variant. Concern over the illness is rife following an upsurge in the number of B-S-E cases detected in French cattle. Fears over the safety of beef grip France has forced the government to take drastic measures - such as banning cuts of meat like T-bone steaks and put a temporary ban on all livestock feed containing meat - to reassure an increasingly-concerned public. Beef has also been taken off the menu in many school campaigns and sales have slumped. Italy on Friday banned most imports of French beef products. SOUNDBITE: (France) "We want to know the truth about what I would call a poisoning. Recently, people in the medias have compared the C-J-D disease with diseases related to tobacco and alcohol but it's completely different. People who are smoking and drinking are choosing it but my son has just been eating and he is going to die because of it." SUPER CAPTION: Dominique Eboli, mother of Arnaud SOUNDBITE: (French) "The tracability of the contamination is impossible and we can't tell about a food contamination the precise date (between 1986 and 1996) when those people have been contaminated and which type of food. So we have decided to build this complaint on the actions and also the non-actions of the French,the European and the British authorities which have participated in the spread of the disease for human beings and animals in Western Europe, and particularly in France." SUPER CAPTION: Francois Honnorat, lawyer representing the victims of C-J-D SOUNDBITE: (French) "When you have a child who is dying, who is bedridden, it's very difficult. We don't have a life anymore. We live day by day with his regression. We are looking at him, hoping to catch a glance from him. It's absolutely terrible. My daughter sees every day her brother dying. I think this will leave its mark on her for a long time." SUPER CAPTION: Dominique Eboli, mother of Arnaud SOUNDBITE: (French) "I absolutely wanted Laurence to know what kind of disease she had. When I was seeing the C-J-D symptoms she was suffering from, I wanted it to be the new variation of CJD to be able to tell her that she was not crazy, that it was the disease that was killing her from the inside."

Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease (/ˈkrɔɪtsfɛlt ˈjɑːkoʊb/ KROITS-felt YAH-kohb) or CJD is a degenerative neurological disorder that is incurable and invariably fatal. CJD is at times called a human form of mad cow disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy or BSE). However, given that BSE is believed to be the cause of variant Creutzfeldt--Jakob (vCJD) disease in humans, the two are often confused. CJD is caused by an agent called a prion. Prions are misfolded proteins that replicate by converting their properly folded counterparts, in their host, to the same misfolded structure they possess. The disease leads to rapid neurodegeneration, causing the brain tissue to develop holes and take a more sponge-like texture. This video is targeted to blind users.

Click herehttp://www.foodsafetypolicy.com New variant CJD may have come from human remains which were put into cattle feed. This theory has been criticised but it is some interesting research into the causes of BSE. *** CJD is the most common among the types of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy found in humans. In CJD, the brain tissue develops holes and takes on a sponge-like texture. This is due to a type of infectious protein called a prion. Prions are misfolded proteins which replicate by converting their properly folded counterparts. The first symptom of CJD is rapidly progressive dementia, leading to memory loss, personality changes and hallucinations. This is accompanied by physical problems such as speech impairment, jerky movements (myoclonus), balance and coordination dysfunction (ataxia), changes in gait, rigid posture, and seizures. The duration of the disease varies greatly, but sporadic (non-inherited) CJD can be fatal within months or even weeks. In some people, the symptoms can continue for years. In most patients, these symptoms are followed by involuntary movements and the appearance of an atypical diagnostic electroencephalogram tracing. Most victims die 6 months after initial symptoms appear, often of pneumonia due to impaired coughing reflexes. About 15% of patients survive 2 or more years. The symptoms of CJD are caused by the progressive death of the brain's nerve cells, which is associated with the build-up of abnormal prion proteins forming amyloids. When brain tissue from a CJD patient is examined under a microscope, many tiny holes can be seen where whole areas of nerve cells have died. The word "spongiform" in "transmissible spongiform encephalopathies" refers to the sponge-like appearance of the brain tissue. Cause Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy diseases are caused by prions. The diseases are thus sometimes called prion diseases. Other prion diseases include Gerstmann--Sträussler--Scheinker syndrome (GSS), fatal familial insomnia (FFI) and kuru in humans, as well as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, commonly known as mad cow disease) in cattle, chronic wasting disease (CWD) in elk and deer, and scrapie in sheep. Alpers' syndrome in infants is also thought to be a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy caused by a prion.

English/Nat The parents of a teenager who died from the human equivalent of Mad Cow Disease hit out Thursday at the British government's handling of the issue. Stephen Churchill was 19 when he died last year from Disease. The government has only now admitted there's a link between the two conditions. Their grief dates from a year ago - but their anger is new. Dorothy and David Churchill say the death of their son Stephen had been a mystery - until now. They recall how his illness started. SOUNDBITE: (English) "All the things that you and I do naturally, take for granted, Stephen couldn't do. He couldn't feed himself, he couldn't walk, he had no coordination, his short term memory went, couldn't write and he actually was only in bed the last few days of his life. Prior to that he did get up and sit in a chair but he couldn't walk, he had to be moved in a wheelchair." SUPER CAPTION: Dorothy Churchill, Mother Stephen's father tells how initially the doctors were taken completely by surprise. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well we were, perhaps even like the medics, we were very confused because when Stephen was in the psychiatric ward they said, well this is a severe depression but with bizarre symptoms. Then when he went to the general hospital it was diagnosed that it was a progressive, degenerative, neurotic disease but they didn't have a name for it. We now know the reasons why, that's because Stephen's age was confusing people. CJD didn't strike people that old it was always the disease of the 50, 60 or 70 year old." SUPER CAPTION: David Churchill, Father Stephen's parents are angry that only now has the UK government accepted there's a link between Mad Cow Disease and the illness he died from - Creutzfeldt- Jakob Disease - and that British beef could be to blame. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Shocked, angry, confused, you know if you'd asked me yesterday I'd say I really don't think there is anything in beef but now we're told Stephen is one of the 10 that was infected through BSE beef and it just makes you so angry." SUPER CAPTION: Dorothy, Stephen's mother Now they want an independent inquiry into the affair.
