CNN and USDA mislead public on safety after ‘Mad Cow’ confirmed

In a recent CNN segment, announcing the discovery of a case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) or ‘Mad Cow Disease’ at a dairy farm in California, there was made a deliberate attempt to mislead the public about safety concerns.

Quoting the USDA, CNN repeated claims that the cow was “never presented for slaughter for human consumption” and “milk does not transmit BSE.”

Two things…

It was a DAIRY cow, so the claim that it was not presented for ‘slaughter’ is a deliberate attempt to confuse the issue in the public mind.

Additionally, both Mad Cow Disease and it’s human counterpart Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease are ‘prion’ diseases.  Scientific studies have demonstrated that prions can actually transfer from animal to animal via MILK consumption.
