Naivete, and only naivete, in fact a self destructive, moronic state of naivete,
born of chronic and acute, even fatalistic ignorance, dictates that one would
fantastically believe there is no human variant of madcow disease rampant in the
human population in the US or Canada or anywhere else where diseased breeding
practises in the meat industry abound and still do. Deers in some 30 something
States have it, cats and other animals have it. It is my observation that the
meat disease has existed for at least 15 years, (I believe much earlier) and
that perhaps most of those cases of "Alzheimers or dementia due to other
causes," are, in fact Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, the human variant of bovine
encephalopathy or mad cow disease.
Notable too, is that Dr. Alzheimer's colleague in his research of the dementia
causing large holes in the brain, named for him, was one Dr.
Creutzfeldt-Jakob--in the early 1900's. My now deceased brother was in the meat
industry in the UK. He called me in the late eighties, when the "sudden news" of
people contracting and dying of the disease was occurring in the UK. He asked me
with breathless sarcasm, how anyone who knows that Britain at the time was
exporting 700,000 calves to the U.S., could not possibly know that the very same
disastrous circumstances that Britain was experiencing exist without news, in
the US and all other nations who eat the same meat. I myself have seen over the
years several obituaries like the one below from several states, and read them
on radio. In fact, more recently, a small Iowa farming weekly bulletin carried a
news report of quarantined cattle in that State due to mad cow disease, as has
Arizona in an AP report, and these news reports occurred in just the last three
years. How many more obscure reports like those really exist throughout the
U.S.? I believe scores do, but are expediently hidden in a Sunday issue most
people do not read on page 37 or so, or some unpublished report one just runs
into on the net or in small rural papers.
