  • 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...

    Human Diseases Fourth Quarter Project By: Hadaya Gelle Period 6 Transcript: Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is a rare, degenerative, fatal brain disorder that affects one in every million. It belongs to the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) family of human and animal diseases. The onset of this disease usually occurs at about 60 years of age and 90% of sufferers usually die within the first year of having the disease. Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is broken down into 3 categories: Sporadic, Hereditary, and Acquired. Sporadic CJD is the most common and affects about 80% of the people diagnosed. There aren’t any risk factors that can lead you to have this type. Hereditary CJD affects 5-10% of the people diagnosed and is caused by a genetic mutation. Acquired CJD is the least commo...

    Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is characterized by behavioural changes, locomotory disturbaances and loss of condition. The course of the disease is about 1-3 months terminating in death in some animals, but many are slaughtered because of unmanageable behaviour or trauma due to failling. Affected cattle were first identified in the United Kingdom in 1986, as a result of feeding contaminated ruminant protein and affected nearly 200 000 cattle. Since then BSE has been reported in several other countries. Variant Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease in humans most likely results from the consumption of beef products contaminated by central nervous system tissue.

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.

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

Click here http://www.foodsafetypolicy.com/bseandcjdexplained 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.

To identify pharmaceutical compounds for Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), Jean-Phillipe Deslys discusses the development of Human Mini-Brains. Using Human Mini-Brains, Deslys argues that diseases such as CJD and similar diseases may be more readily analyzed. 0:11 - Using Human Mini-Brains as Platforms 0:55 - Human Mini-Brain Model Creation Needs 3:44 - Human Mini-Brain Development 4:48 - Implications of Technology on Diseases 6:22 - Derivation of Mini-Brains 9:35 - Human Mini-Brain Results 12:42 - Conclusion -- Watch more from this conference at: 2015 CJD Foundation Family Conference Playlist: http://bit.ly/cjd-2015 Individual Presentations: Byron Caughey - Detecting Prions: http://bit.ly/cjd-caughey Glenn Telling - Transgenic Mouse Modeling: http://bit.ly/cjd-telling Thomas Wisniewski - Vaccination Approaches: http://bit.ly/cjd-wisniewski Q&A with Caughey, Telling, Wisniewski, Will: http://bit.ly/cjd-qa1 Jean-Phillipe Deslys: Human Mini-Brains: http://bit.ly/cjd-deslys Julia Moreno: Gerstamann-Straussler Scheinker Syndrome: http://bit.ly/cjd-moreno Chrsitina Sigurdson - Selective Cell Vulnerability: http://bit.ly/cjd-sigurdson Q&A with Deslys, Moreno, Sigurdson, and Knight: http://bit.ly/cjd-qa2 Emiliano Biasini - Pharmacological Chaperones http://bit.ly/cjd-biasini CJD Foundation Website: http://www.CJDFoundation.org Subscribe: https://goo.gl/hRMXAp -- "Prion diseases are a group of rare, invariably fatal brain disorders which occur both in humans and certain animals. 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

July 2005 The cost of the crisis over BSE, and its links to the human variant CJD were obvious to all in terms of cattle and livelihood. However, the question of the role that cost had to play before the crisis erupted is one that is much more contentious. Ron McCullagh illustrates both the devastating impact of the crisis, and the debates that still rage over the nature and treatment of the disease.

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."

Click herehttp://www.foodsafetypolicy.com On December 2007, at just 24 years of age, Andy Black died after suffering from the human form of mad cow's disease vCJD (variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease). Andy worked in the media producing/researching programmes for talkSPORT Radio, BBC, and ITV. During his terrible last days and at his request Christine Lord made it her mission to find out "Who killed my son?" and with the BBC, she produced a documentary exposing the key players at the centre of the BSE crisis whose actions and decisions led to his untimely and avoidable death. The Documentary is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAJTr6Nxxa0 Christine Lord, as Andy's mum and a freelance journalist continues to research the scandal - and its links between school meals, (state and independent), baby food, vaccines and medicines. *** Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease or CJD is a degenerative neurological disorder (brain disease) that is incurable and invariably fatal. CJD is at times called a human form of mad cow disease, given that bovine spongiform encephalopathy is believed to be the cause of variant Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease in humans. 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 (Johnson, 1998). 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.

Human Diseases Fourth Quarter Project By: Hadaya Gelle Period 6 Transcript: Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is a rare, degenerative, fatal brain disorder that affects one in every million. It belongs to the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) family of human and animal diseases. The onset of this disease usually occurs at about 60 years of age and 90% of sufferers usually die within the first year of having the disease. Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is broken down into 3 categories: Sporadic, Hereditary, and Acquired. Sporadic CJD is the most common and affects about 80% of the people diagnosed. There aren’t any risk factors that can lead you to have this type. Hereditary CJD affects 5-10% of the people diagnosed and is caused by a genetic mutation. Acquired CJD is the least common type that affects only 1% of the people diagnosed. It is usually caused by exposure of nervous system tissue, including the brain, during a certain medical procedure. Early symptoms of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease includes: Rapidly progressive dementia Problems in muscular coordination Changes in personality Impairment of memory, judgement, vision, and thinking Depression and insomnia may occur Severe symptoms of CJD includes: Mental impairment Myoclonus, which is involuntary muscle jerks Blindness Inability to move or speak Coma Development of infections such as pneumonia that can lead to death Symptoms of CJD may be similar to those of Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s Disease, but to accurately confirm the disease, an autopsy needs to be done because CJD causes a unique change to brain tissue CJD is caused by prions, which are harmless proteins found in human body cells, but once they become abnormal, they clump together which leads to neuron loss brain damage that is seen in the disease. The way the brain damage occurs is yet unknown. CJD can also be inherited. Prions can become infectious if mutation occurs in the prion gene or if the prion gene becomes mutated in an egg or sperm cell that will ultimately be passed down to the offspring. CJD cannot be transmitted through the air or casual contact and is not contagious. But the disease can be transmitted by coming into contact with an infected person’s spinal cord fluid or brain tissue. There are cases of people contracting the disease from cornea transplants, dura mater grafts, implantation of unsterilized electrodes in the brain, and injection of contaminated growth hormones from the pituitary gland. The chances of contracting CJD through medical procedures has greatly decreased through the improvement of medicine. At this time, there aren't any diagnostic tests that can diagnose someone with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. However, if a doctor suspects someone of having CJD, they’ll administer tests such as spinal taps and giving the patient an electroencephalogram that will rule out treatable forms of dementia (such as encephalitis and chronic meningitis). CT scans can also rule out brain tumors and signs of stroke. MRI scans of the brain can reveal the pattern of brain degeneration to determine if they’re caused by CJD. Unfortunately, there is no way to treat CJD but current treatment is alleviating symptoms for sufferers by prescribing them opiate drugs and sodium valproate for the myoclonus. Precautions that can be taken to prevent the spread of CJD includes: Covering cuts and abrasions with waterproof dressings Wearing face protection when coming into contact with splashing blood or spinal fluid Disposing clothes that came into contact with a patient Avoid cutting or poking yourself with instruments contaminated with blood Soaking instruments that came into contact with a patient with undiluted chlorine bleach Thanks for watching!

See http://www.foodsafetypolicy.com/documentary for the interview towards the end of the programme. Joe Crowley's (the presenter's) filming diary... For me and friends of my age, Mad Cow Disease seems like a distant nightmare - something that haunted us on the news as we grew up. But this Inside Out programme has made me think again and, sadly, given the disease a painful new relevance. It's about a young guy like me, starting out on a career in the media, when he was struck down by the human form of the disease. 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

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is characterized by behavioural changes, locomotory disturbaances and loss of condition. The course of the disease is about 1-3 months terminating in death in some animals, but many are slaughtered because of unmanageable behaviour or trauma due to failling. Affected cattle were first identified in the United Kingdom in 1986, as a result of feeding contaminated ruminant protein and affected nearly 200 000 cattle. Since then BSE has been reported in several other countries. Variant Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease in humans most likely results from the consumption of beef products contaminated by central nervous system tissue.
