BSE Discovered in California Cow

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) tests for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (aka Mad Cow) on an ongoing basis at ten times the World Animal Health Organization standards. The nation’s 4th case of BSE has been identified in central California. “The beef and dairy in the American food supply is safe,” according to U. S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. We hope so. Milk does not transmit BSE, but the neurological portions of animal flesh can.

PositiveTip: Avoid exposure to BSE by becoming a vegetarian.
