Insecticide Causes Mad Cow Disease
by Fintan Dunne
Research by Kathy McMahon Reprinted from, email -
Pharmaceutical interests in the UK are ignoring new scientific research that shows the insecticide used in the UK government's own warble-fly campaigns triggered the UK surge of 'Mad Cow' disease. Latest experiments by Cambridge University prion specialist, David R. Brown, have shown that manganese bonds with prions. Other researchers work shows that prions in the bovine spine along which insecticides are applied can be damaged by ICI's Phosmet organophosphate(OP) insecticide -causing the disease. British scientists have led the current theory that an infectious prion in bonemeal fed to cattle causes bovine spongiform disease (BSE).

Mark Purdey's Organophosphate Model of Mad Cow Disease [Posted 3 January 2003, last updated November 2004] Among mainstream science, the current model of Mad Cow Disease (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy or BSE) involves "prions" protein rods allegedly without any DNA of their own, and an ability to survive most antiseptics and heat while remaining infectious. Mad Cow Disease is found in a number of other animals, and is called: Mad Cow Disease (BSE - Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) in cattle

Swiss cat diagnosed with feline form of mad cow disease
July 17, 2001 Agence France Presse by Vik Iyer A Swiss cat has been diagnosed with the feline form of mad cow disease, thought to have been spread through infected pet food, in the first such case in the country, veterinary officials said Tuesday. The six-year-old animal had been suffering serious problems with its nervous system and was put down, and was later diagnosed with feline spongiform encephalopathy (FSE), the cat-borne variety of mad cow disease. The pet was thought to have been infected by cat food containing either brain or spinal column from cattle contaminated with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), better known as mad cow disease. The feline form of the disease is closely linked with the cattle-borne variety and was first reported in 1990 in Britain, whose meat and livestock industry is still reeling from a BSE epidemic which swept through the country's herds. Britain has reported around 90 cases of the feline disease among the nation's pets, while Norway has also witnessed a case, despite being clear of the bovine brain-wasting disease.

    BSE or Mad Cow Disease
    BSE or Mad Cow Disease had never been diagnosed in the United States before a single infected cow in Washington State was diagnosed after slaughter in December 2003. Potential impacts on the US agricultural economy are tremendous, cutting exports and costing thousands of jobs in the food processing, transportation, retail, and restaurant industries.
    Get the Facts on BSE: Fact: BSE is a progressive neurological disease among cattle that is always fatal.
    Fact: The incubation period (the time from when an animal becomes infected until it first shows disease signs) is from 2 to 8 years. Following the onset of clinical signs, the animal's condition deteriorates until it either dies or is destroyed. This process usually takes from 2 weeks to 6 months.
    Fact: There are different scientific hypotheses concerning the origins of BSE. BSE in Great Britain may have been caused by feeding cattle rendered protein produced from the carcasses of scrapie-infected sheep or cattle with a previously unidentified transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). The practice of using products such as meat-and-bone meal as a source of protein in cattle rations has been common for several decades. Changes in rendering operations in the late 1970's and early 1980's may have played a part in the appearance of the disease.

    Mad Cow Disease
    With many special interest groups hoping to benefit by generating public alarm over mad cow disease , real facts can be hard to find. Even the name "mad cow" has been used because of the emotional reaction it produces. The real name for mad cow disease, after all, is Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) . Despite the detection of a single case of the disease in the United States, BSE does not present a public health risk for the American population. Through, the Center for Global Food Issues hopes to provide concerned beef consumers with credible information about mad cow disease and related variant (vCJD) from recognized academic and industry experts.

    BSE was first observed in Great Britain in April, 1984, and was specifically diagnosed in 1986. Since 1986, nearly cases of BSE in cattle have been identified in the United Kingdom. The epidemic peaked in 1992-93 at almost 1,000 cases per week. Control measures have reduced incidence and currently, less than 100 cases are being reported per week.

    Agencies Work to Corral Mad Cow Disease
    By Linda Bren When he entered his lab on Dec. 23, 2003, Allen Jenny, D.V.M., knew right away that something was wrong. He recalls the solemn expression on the face of a fellow scientist, who said, "I've got a slide to show you." Jenny, a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) pathologist, peered through the microscope. What he saw was a bright red stain seeping into the gray matter of a slice of brain tissuea telltale sign of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), otherwise known as mad cow disease. "Are you sure it's a cow?" Jenny asked, a logical question in light of the fact that the National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Ames, Iowa, also tests sheep, deer, and other animals for mad cow-like diseases. Yes, it was a cow, and this first diagnosis of BSE in the United States launched an emergency investigation that involved two countriesthe United States and Canadaand regulatory changes by two U.S. government agencies to further bolster their effective safeguards to protect public health and livestock.
    Emergency Response
    After U.S. authorities announced on the same day that a single dairy cow in Washington state was infected with the fatal brain-wasting disease, BSE, the Food and Drug Administration and the USDA took immediate action. While the USDA went to work to trace the origin of the cow and to initiate a recall of its meat, the FDA made sure that other portions of the cow, including the infectious brain and spinal cord, didn't get into animal feed or other FDA-regulated products. It is believed that BSE spreads when cows eat feed containing remnants of infected cattle. The FDA, which regulates animal feed, has banned the use of these remnants in feed for cattle and other ruminants, such as sheep and goats, since 1997. Canada implemented a similar ban at the same time.
