• 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...

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

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.

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 XFA European farm ministers are meeting in Brussels on Monday for crisis talks expected to result in tough new restrictions on cattle feed to control the spread of mad cow disease throughout the continent. 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..."

SHOWS: LONDON, UK - 26/3 British newspapers' headlines on world wide ban of British beef Ext St Philip's school CU St Philip's school plaque Children entering school Parent sot: "they (the government) say they haven't quantified it yet, I still think the risk is there and one has to be very careful, and that decision is a personal decision, for me..no" School boy sot: "it's not safe at the moment, I am just scared of Mad Cow disease basically" Little girl sot: "No (i wouldn't want beef), because it's got too much Mad Cow disease and it's killing people if you eat too much..." Parent sot replying to journalist asking whether he would tuck into an English steak: "at my age certainly.." Boy sot: "I'm nervouse about it... Boy sot: "I am very nervous about this beef thing, I've still got a few years to live.." Boy sot: "the chance of catching BSE is like the chance of winning the lottery.." Mother sot: "I'm a bit worried about beef burgers..because you don't know what's in them and where it comes from in the cow.." Head teacher Harry Biggs-Davidson sot "I think people are beginning to lose faith slightly in what the government say and we can't gamble with children's health...so we are keeping it off the menu for the moment .."

Click here http://www.foodsafetypolicy.com/howandwhen Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), commonly known as mad-cow disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative disease in cattle that causes a spongy degeneration in the brain and spinal cord. 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.

Click herehttp://www.foodsafetypolicy.com/documentary BBC Documentary about Andy Black (from Portsmouth, England) who died after suffering from the human form of mad cow disease variant CJD. vCJd fact file Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is a rare and fatal progressive degenerative brain disease. It is one of a group of diseases which affect humans and animals called Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs). TSEs are believed to be caused by the build up of an abnormal form of the naturally occurring 'prion' protein in the brain. CJD was originally described in its classical form in 1920. A new variant - called variant CJD (vCJD) - was first identified in 1996. Variant CJD is strongly linked to exposure to a TSE of cattle called Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), probably through food. Moving and harrowing story We started filming Christine Lord in September 2007, just a couple of months after her son Andrew was diagnosed with variant Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (vCJd). Andrew had been a fit and healthy radio producer, but the disease was already damaging his mind and body. He was unable to walk more than a few steps and struggled to speak above a whisper. Christine borrowed one of our cameras, so that she could film Andrew at home and record her thoughts. These video diaries provided a moving insight into the harrowing months that followed as Christine cared for her son. Christine's a freelance journalist, so she used her spare moments to look into the history of BSE and the possible causes of vCJD. While Andrew slept, she researched the disease that was killing him. Voice in the wilderness? We also followed Christine as she visited Pitsham Farm near Midhurst, where the first cow was spotted with Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) in 1984. The farm is just 30 miles away from Christine's home in Southsea, but it was the furthest she had been from Andrew since he was diagnosed. Emotional meeting - Christine and David. Vet David Bee told Christine how he labelled the disease "Pitsham Farm Syndrome" after seeing eight cows with similar symptoms. "We had a range of clinical symptoms. We had cows that were aggressive, cows that had lost weight and cows with head tremors. And we weren't seeing those anywhere else." For Christine, the vet's description is distressingly familiar: "The symptoms you have described are exactly what I have been experiencing with my son. "I have to be his voice in the wilderness because it feels like we've been forgotten, that the broader public have forgotten about it, but everyone over the age of 10 has been exposed to this." Search for the truth Christine's search for the truth also took her to London to see the man leading the search for the cure. Search for truth - Professor Collinge. Professor John Collinge and his team at the Prion Unit have managed to reverse the disease in mice. It's too late for Andrew, but Professor Collinge thinks a similar treatment for humans might be just a few years away. He also tells Christine how the government "leaned on" scientists who tried to speak out about the health risks of BSE in the early '90s. "I had phone calls from government departments in somewhat intimidating tones. They left you in no doubt that you weren't making yourself very popular." Confronting the politicians Christine's most testing encounter was with the politician who will always be associated with the BSE crisis. Agriculture Minister John Gummer attempted to convince the public that beef was safe by feeding a burger to his daughter Cordelia. Safe to eat? John Gummer with Cordelia. The BSE inquiry concluded that the government's campaign of reassurance was a mistake, but it didn't criticise Mr Gummer for his role in the crisis. At a highly charged meeting, Mr Gummer tells Christine that he took the right decisions based on the knowledge he had at the time. "At every point and on every occasion, I sought to make the best choice and best decision I could for the safety of myself, my family and my country." He strongly denies Christine's suggestion that the Government relied on selective scientific research. "No scientist of any kind was stopped by me from giving their information. I only wanted to know the facts."

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

Mad Cow Disease - What to Know - as part of the education series by GeoBeats. Mad Cow Disease - What is It? Scientifically named Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, it is a progressive neurological disease that affects a cow's nervous system. Once infected, the cow's behavior becomes erratic - inability to walk, uncontrolled movements and lower milk production. Incubation period can be months, even years. There's no known treatment and the disease is fatal. How Do Cows Get Infected? A cow gets infected with the disease if they eat diseased feed which has abnormal proteins called prions found in brains, spinal cords, and other parts. These prions cause the degeneration in brain, giving it a spongy like appearance. How Can It Affect Us? Humans don't get mad cow disease as such but they get a variant of it if they eat the diseased cattle tissue. Health officials in the US and elsewhere control such scenarios by periodic sampling and prohibiting cattle parts in feed which may contain prions. Where Has It Been Reported So Far? Although United Kingdom has been most impacted by the mad cow disease so far, the BSE has been reported in many countries around the word. Millions of cattle have been slaughtered and nearly 200,000 cows have died. Around 200 humans have lost their lives. In the US recently, a cow tested positive for the disease but the health officials say that the infected cow wasn't designated for meat consumption and it was an atypical strain of the disease.
