Subject: [Docket No. APHIS-2006-0041] RIN 0579-AC01 BSE, MRR; Importation of Live Bovines and Products Derived From Bovines; FINAL RULE
Date: September 18, 2007 at 8:19 am PST


Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy; Minimal-Risk Regions; Importation of
Live Bovines and Products Derived From Bovines; Final Rule


[[Page 53314]]

9 CFR Parts 93, 94, 95, and 96

[Docket No. APHIS-2006-0041]
RIN 0579-AC01


Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy; Minimal-Risk Regions;
Importation of Live Bovines and Products Derived From Bovines

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are amending the regulations regarding the importation of
animals and animal products to establish conditions for the importation
of the following commodities from regions that present a minimal risk
of introducing bovine spongiform encephalopathy into the United States:
Live bovines for any use born on or after a date determined by the
Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service to be the date of effective
enforcement of a ruminant-to-ruminant feed ban in the region of export;
blood and blood products derived from bovines; and casings and part of
the small intestine derived from bovines. We are making these
amendments after conducting a risk assessment and comprehensive
evaluation of the issues and concluding that such bovines and bovine
products can be safely imported under the conditions described in this
rule. This document also removes the delay in applicability of certain
provisions of a final rule published in January 2005.

DATES: Effective Date: November 19, 2007.

WELL, someone did call me from Bio-Rad about this,
however it was not Susan Berg.
but i had to just about take a blood oath not to reveal
there name. IN fact they did not want me to even mention
this, but i feel it is much much to important. I have omitted
any I.D. of this person, but thought I must document this ;

Bio-Rad, TSS phone conversation 12/28/04

Finally spoke with ;

2000 Alfred Nobel Drive
Hercules, CA 94547
Ph: 510-741-6720
Fax: 510-741-5630
Email: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

at approx. 14:00 hours 12/28/04, I had a very pleasant
phone conversation with XXXX XXXXX about the USDA
and the inconclusive BSE testing problems they seem
to keep having. X was very very cautious as to speak
directly about USDA and it's policy of not using WB.
X was very concerned as a Bio-Rad official of retaliation
of some sort. X would only speak of what other countries
do, and that i should take that as an answer. I told X
I understood that it was a very loaded question and X
agreed several times over and even said a political one.

my question;

Does Bio-Rad believe USDA's final determination of False positive,
without WB, and considering the new
atypical TSEs not showing positive with -IHC and -HP ???

ask if i was a reporter. i said no, i was with CJD Watch
and that i had lost my mother to hvCJD. X did not
want any of this recorded or repeated.

again, very nervous, will not answer directly about USDA for fear of
retaliation, but again said X tell
me what other countries are doing and finding, and that
i should take it from there.
"very difficult to answer"

"very political"

"very loaded question"

outside USA and Canada, they use many different confirmatory tech. in
house WB, SAF, along with
IHC, HP, several times etc. you should see at several
talks meetings (TSE) of late Paris Dec 2, that IHC- DOES NOT MEAN IT IS
NEGATIVE. again, look what
the rest of the world is doing.
said something about Dr. Houston stating;
any screening assay, always a chance for human
error. but with so many errors (i am assuming
X meant inconclusive), why are there no investigations, just false
positives?
said something about ''just look at the sheep that tested IHC- but were
positive''. ...

FULL 130 LASHINGS TO USDA BY OIG again

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Statement
May 4, 2004
Media Inquiries: 301-827-6242
Consumer Inquiries: 888-INFO-FDA

Statement on Texas Cow With Central Nervous System Symptoms
On Friday, April 30 th , the Food and Drug Administration learned that a cow
with central nervous system symptoms had been killed and shipped to a
processor for rendering into animal protein for use in animal feed.

FDA, which is responsible for the safety of animal feed, immediately began
an investigation. On Friday and throughout the weekend, FDA investigators
inspected the slaughterhouse, the rendering facility, the farm where the
animal came from, and the processor that initially received the cow from the
slaughterhouse.

FDA's investigation showed that the animal in question had already been
rendered into "meat and bone meal" (a type of protein animal feed). Over the
weekend FDA was able to track down all the implicated material. That
material is being held by the firm, which is cooperating fully with FDA.

Cattle with central nervous system symptoms are of particular interest
because cattle with bovine spongiform encephalopathy or BSE, also known as
"mad cow disease," can exhibit such symptoms. In this case, there is no way
now to test for BSE. But even if the cow had BSE, FDA's animal feed rule
would prohibit the feeding of its rendered protein to other ruminant animals
(e.g., cows, goats, sheep, bison).

FDA is sending a letter to the firm summarizing its findings and informing
the firm that FDA will not object to use of this material in swine feed
only. If it is not used in swine feed, this material will be destroyed. Pigs
have been shown not to be susceptible to BSE. If the firm agrees to use the
material for swine feed only, FDA will track the material all the way
through the supply chain from the processor to the farm to ensure that the
feed is properly monitored and used only as feed for pigs.

To protect the U.S. against BSE, FDA works to keep certain mammalian protein
out of animal feed for cattle and other ruminant animals. FDA established
its animal feed rule in 1997 after the BSE epidemic in the U.K. showed that
the disease spreads by feeding infected ruminant protein to cattle.

Under the current regulation, the material from this Texas cow is not
allowed in feed for cattle or other ruminant animals. FDA's action
specifying that the material go only into swine feed means also that it will
not be fed to poultry.

FDA is committed to protecting the U.S. from BSE and collaborates closely
with the U.S. Department of Agriculture on all BSE issues. The animal feed
rule provides crucial protection against the spread of BSE, but it is only
one of several such firewalls. FDA will soon be improving the animal feed
rule, to make this strong system even stronger.

THE USDA JUNE 2004 ENHANCED BSE SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM WAS TERRIBLY FLAWED ;


CDC DR. PAUL BROWN TSE EXPERT COMMENTS 2006


The U.S. Department of Agriculture was quick to assure the public earlier
this week that the third case of mad cow disease did not pose a risk to
them, but what federal officials have not acknowledged is that this latest
case indicates the deadly disease has been circulating in U.S. herds for at
least a decade.

The second case, which was detected last year in a Texas cow and which USDA
officials were reluctant to verify, was approximately 12 years old.

These two cases (the latest was detected in an Alabama cow) present a
picture of the disease having been here for 10 years or so, since it is
thought that cows usually contract the disease from contaminated feed they
consume as calves. The concern is that humans can contract a fatal,
incurable, brain-wasting illness from consuming beef products contaminated
with the mad cow pathogen.

"The fact the Texas cow showed up fairly clearly implied the existence of
other undetected cases," Dr. Paul Brown, former medical director of the
National Institutes of Health's Laboratory for Central Nervous System
Studies and an expert on mad cow-like diseases, told United Press
International. "The question was, 'How many?' and we still can't answer
that."

Brown, who is preparing a scientific paper based on the latest two mad cow
cases to estimate the maximum number of infected cows that occurred in the
United States, said he has "absolutely no confidence in USDA tests before
one year ago" because of the agency's reluctance to retest the Texas cow
that initially tested positive.

USDA officials finally retested the cow and confirmed it was infected seven
months later, but only at the insistence of the agency's inspector general.

"Everything they did on the Texas cow makes everything USDA did before 2005
suspect," Brown said. ...snip...end

EFSA Scientific Report on the Assessment of the Geographical BSE-Risk (GBR)
of the United States of America (USA)


Summary of the Scientific Report

The European Food Safety Authority and its Scientific Expert Working Group
on the Assessment of the Geographical Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE)
Risk (GBR) were asked by the European Commission (EC) to provide an
up-to-date scientific report on the GBR in the United States of America,
i.e. the likelihood of the presence of one or more cattle being infected
with BSE, pre-clinically as well as clinically, in USA. This scientific
report addresses the GBR of USA as assessed in 2004 based on data covering
the period 1980-2003.

The BSE agent was probably imported into USA and could have reached domestic
cattle in the middle of the eighties. These cattle imported in the mid
eighties could have been rendered in the late eighties and therefore led to
an internal challenge in the early nineties. It is possible that imported
meat and bone meal (MBM) into the USA reached domestic cattle and leads to
an internal challenge in the early nineties.

A processing risk developed in the late 80s/early 90s when cattle imports
from BSE risk countries were slaughtered or died and were processed (partly)
into feed, together with some imports of MBM. This risk continued to exist,
and grew significantly in the mid 90’s when domestic cattle, infected by
imported MBM, reached processing. Given the low stability of the system, the
risk increased over the years with continued imports of cattle and MBM from
BSE risk countries.

EFSA concludes that the current GBR level of USA is III, i.e. it is likely
but not confirmed that domestic cattle are (clinically or pre-clinically)
infected with the BSE-agent. As long as there are no significant changes in
rendering or feeding, the stability remains extremely/very unstable. Thus,
the probability of cattle to be (pre-clinically or clinically) infected with
the BSE-agent persistently increases.

EFSA Scientific Report on the Assessment of the Geographical BSE-Risk (GBR)
of Canada


Summary of the Scientific Report

The European Food Safety Authority and its Scientific Expert Working Group
on the Assessment of the Geographical Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE)
Risk (GBR) were asked to provide an up-to-date scientific report on the GBR
in Canada, i.e. the likelihood of the presence of one or more cattle being
infected with BSE, pre-clinically as well as clinically, in Canada. This
scientific report addresses the GBR of Canada as assessed in 2004 based on
data covering the period 1980-2003.

The BSE agent was probably imported into the country middle of the eighties
and could have reached domestic cattle in the early nineties. These cattle
imported in the mid eighties could have been rendered in the late eighties
and therefore led to an internal challenge in the early 90s. It is possible
that imported meat and bone meal (MBM) into Canada reached domestic cattle
and led to an internal challenge in the early 90s.

A certain risk that BSE-infected cattle entered processing in Canada, and
were at least partly rendered for feed, occurred in the early 1990s when
cattle imported from UK in the mid 80s could have been slaughtered. This
risk continued to exist, and grew significantly in the mid 90’s when
domestic cattle, infected by imported MBM, reached processing. Given the low
stability of the system, the risk increased over the years with continued
imports of cattle and MBM from BSE risk countries.

EFSA concludes that the current GBR level of Canada is III, i.e. it is
confirmed at a lower level that domestic cattle are (clinically or
pre-clinically) infected with the BSE-agent. As long as the system remains
unstable, it is expected that the GBR continues to grow, even if no
additional external challenges occur.

MY personal belief, since you ask, is that not only the Canadian border, but
the USA border, and the Mexican border should be sealed up tighter than a
drum for exporting there TSE tainted products, until a validated, 100%
sensitive test is available, and all animals for human and animal
consumption are tested. all we are doing is the exact same thing the UK did
with there mad cow poisoning when they exported it all over the globe, all
the while knowing what they were doing. this BSE MRR policy is nothing more
than a legal tool to do just exactly what the UK did, thanks to the OIE and
GW, it's legal now. and they executed Saddam for poisoning ???

64. A member noted that at the recent Neuroprion meeting, a study was
presented showing that in transgenic mice BSE passaged in sheep may be more
virulent and infectious to a wider range of species than bovine derived BSE.

Other work presented suggested that BSE and bovine amyloidotic spongiform
encephalopathy (BASE) MAY BE RELATED. A mutation had been identified in the
prion protein gene in an AMERICAN BASE CASE THAT WAS SIMILAR IN NATURE TO A
MUTATION FOUND IN CASES OF SPORADIC CJD.

3:30 Transmission of the Italian Atypical BSE (BASE) in Humanized Mouse

Models Qingzhong Kong, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Pathology, Case Western
Reserve
University

Bovine Amyloid Spongiform Encephalopathy (BASE) is an atypical BSE strain
discovered recently in Italy, and similar or different atypical BSE cases
were also reported in other countries. The infectivity and phenotypes of
these atypical BSE strains in humans are unknown. In collaboration with
Pierluigi Gambetti, as well as Maria Caramelli and her co-workers, we have
inoculated transgenic mice expressing human prion protein with brain
homogenates from BASE or BSE infected cattle. Our data shows that about half
of the BASE-inoculated mice became infected with an average incubation time
of about 19 months; in contrast, none of the BSE-inoculated mice appear to
be infected after more than 2 years.

***These results indicate that BASE is transmissible to humans and suggest
that BASE is more virulent than
classical BSE in humans.***

Where has atypical BSE been found?

Although the greatest number of cases is in France(12), increasing numbers of cases
have now been identified in other countries – Canada (1), Germany (2), Italy (2),
Japan (2), Netherlands (4), Poland (7), Sweden (1), Switzerland (1), UK (1),
and USA (2). In Sweden and the USA the atypical cases represent the only indigenous
cases detected. In other words – typical BSE has not been detected in native
cattle in these two countries (34). In France, Poland, Netherlands and Germany both
H and L forms of atypical BSE have been reported(25).

Where is CWD found?
Chronic wasting disease was first seen in Colorado deer belonging to several
research facilities in 1967, and later was diagnosed in captive and wild
deer and elk in northern Colorado and southern Wyoming. In the 1970s, CWD
occurred at a zoo in Canada in mule deer that had been imported from a
zoological park in Colorado. Fortunately, the disease did not spread. Since
1996, CWD has been diagnosed in ranched elk as well as farmed wild deer in
both Saskatchewan and Alberta. CWD has also been found in deer and elk in
the USA.

THE BSE MRR policy is nothing more than a legal tool to trade TSE legally, globally.
North America is now no different than that of what the U.K. was, back when they
poisoned the globe with there mad cow products, except this time the OIE, USDA et al
have made it legal. it's all about commodities and futures, the elderly are expendable, and
sporadic CJDs just fall from the sky. and all those dead farmers and there wives, that died from
sporadic CJD, that had BSE herds, well, that was just a happenstance of bad luck too. the
ukbsenvCJD only theory was fact, only one strain of one mad cow, only in one geographical
location of the globe, when on the one hand, the UKs tainted MBM was shipped all over the
Globe, and on the other hand, the USA developed and shipped the 'continuous rendering'
techonology that brewed up this recipe for disastor to the U.K. some 5 years before the
USA started using it. daaa, only 13 mad cows in North America, well, 14, if you count that one
stumbling and staggering mad cow in Texas they never tested at all. yep, and i fell of a shrimp boat

The exact same recipe for B.S.E. existed in the U.S. for years and years. In reading over the Qualitative Analysis of BSE Risk Factors-1, this is a 25 page report by the USDA:APHIS:VS. It could have been done in one page. The first page, fourth paragraph says it all;

"Similarities exist in the two countries usage of continuous rendering technology and the lack of usage of solvents, however, large differences still remain with other risk factors which greatly reduce the potential risk at the national level."

Then, the next 24 pages tries to down-play the high risks of B.S.E. in the U.S., with nothing more than the cattle to sheep ratio count, and the geographical locations of herds and flocks. That's all the evidence they can come up with, in the next 24 pages.

Something else I find odd, page 16;

"In the United Kingdom there is much concern for a specific continuous rendering technology which uses lower temperatures and accounts for 25 percent of total output. This technology was _originally_ designed and imported from the United States. However, the specific application in the production process is _believed_ to be different in the two countries."

Restoring Scientific Integrity in Policymaking

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


————
On February 18, 2004, over 60 leading scientists–Nobel laureates, leading
medical experts, former federal agency directors, and university chairs and
presidents–signed the statement below, voicing their concern over the misuse
of science by the Bush administration. UCS is seeking the signatures of
thousands of additional U.S. scientists in support of this effort.
————


Science, like any field of endeavor, relies on freedom of inquiry; and one
of the hallmarks of that freedom is objectivity. Now, more than ever, on
issues ranging from climate change to AIDS research to genetic engineering
to food additives, government relies on the impartial perspective of science
for guidance.

President George H.W. Bush, April 23, 1990

Attention Scientists


We need you to support this statement calling for an end to scientific
abuse—now more than ever.

Creating meaningful reform will require the persistent and energetic
engagement of the scientific community—in universities, laboratories,
government agencies, and companies across the United States.

We need engineers and ecologists, physicists and physicians, psychologists
and public health professionals—scientists of all disciplines.

Successful application of science has played a large part in the policies
that have made the United States of America the world’s most powerful nation
and its citizens increasingly prosperous and healthy. Although scientific
input to the government is rarely the only factor in public policy
decisions, this input should always be weighed from an objective and
impartial perspective to avoid perilous consequences. Indeed, this principle
has long been adhered to by presidents and administrations of both parties
in forming and implementing policies. The administration of George W. Bush
has, however, disregarded this principle.

When scientific knowledge has been found to be in conflict with its
political goals, the administration has often manipulated the process
through which science enters into its decisions. This has been done by
placing people who are professionally unqualified or who have clear
conflicts of interest in official posts and on scientific advisory
committees; by disbanding existing advisory committees; by censoring and
suppressing reports by the government’s own scientists; and by simply not
seeking independent scientific advice. Other administrations have, on
occasion, engaged in such practices, but not so systematically nor on so
wide a front. Furthermore, in advocating policies that are not
scientifically sound, the administration has sometimes misrepresented
scientific knowledge and misled the public about the implications of its
policies.
For example, in support of the president’s decision to avoid regulating
emissions that cause climate change, the administration has consistently
misrepresented the findings of the National Academy of Sciences, government
scientists, and the expert community at large. Thus in June 2003, the White
House demanded extensive changes in the treatment of climate change in a
major report by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To avoid issuing
a scientifically indefensible report, EPA officials eviscerated the
discussion of climate change and its consequences.

The administration also suppressed a study by the EPA that found that a
bipartisan Senate clean air proposal would yield greater health benefits
than the administration’s proposed Clear Skies Act, which the administration
is portraying as an improvement of the existing Clean Air Act. "Clear Skies"
would, however, be less effective in cleaning up the nation’s air and
reducing mercury contamination of fish than proper enforcement of the
existing Clean Air Act.

Misrepresenting and suppressing scientific knowledge for political purposes
can have serious consequences. Had Richard Nixon also based his decisions on
such calculations he would not have supported the Clean Air Act of 1970,
which in the following 20 years prevented more than 200,000 premature deaths
and millions of cases of respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Similarly,
George H.W. Bush would not have supported the Clean Air Act Amendments of
1990 and additional benefits of comparable proportions would have been lost.

The behavior of the White House on these issues is part of a pattern that
has led Russell Train, the EPA administrator under Presidents Nixon and
Ford, to observe, "How radically we have moved away from regulation based on
independent findings and professional analysis of scientific, health and
economic data by the responsible agency to regulation controlled by the
White House and driven primarily by political considerations."

Across a broad range of policy areas, the administration has undermined the
quality and independence of the scientific advisory system and the morale of
the government’s outstanding scientific personnel:

Highly qualified scientists have been dropped from advisory committees
dealing with childhood lead poisoning, environmental and reproductive
health, and drug abuse, while individuals associated with or working for
industries subject to regulation have been appointed to these bodies.
Censorship and political oversight of government scientists is not
restricted to the EPA, but has also occurred at the Departments of Health
and Human Services, Agriculture, and Interior, when scientific findings are
in conflict with the administration's policies or with the views of its
political supporters.
The administration is supporting revisions to the Endangered Species Act
that would greatly constrain scientific input into the process of
identifying endangered species and critical habitats for their protection.
Existing scientific advisory committees to the Department of Energy on
nuclear weapons, and to the State Department on arms control, have been
disbanded.
In making the invalid claim that Iraq had sought to acquire aluminum tubes
for uranium enrichment centrifuges, the administration disregarded the
contrary assessment by experts at Livermore, Los Alamos and Oak Ridge
National Laboratories.
The distortion of scientific knowledge for partisan political ends must
cease if the public is to be properly informed about issues central to its
well being, and the nation is to benefit fully from its heavy investment in
scientific research and education. To elevate the ethic that governs the
relationship between science and government, Congress and the Executive
should establish legislation and regulations that would:


Forbid censorship of scientific studies unless there is a reasonable
national security concern;
Require all scientists on scientific advisory panels to meet high
professional standards; and
Ensure public access to government studies and the findings of scientific
advisory panels.
To maintain public trust in the credibility of the scientific, engineering
and medical professions, and to restore scientific integrity in the
formation and implementation of public policy, we call on our colleagues to:

Bring the current situation to public attention;
Request that the government return to the ethic and code of conduct which
once fostered independent and objective scientific input into policy
formation; and
Advocate legislative, regulatory and administrative reforms that would
ensure the acquisition and dissemination of independent and objective
scientific analysis and advice.

Pathobiology and Diagnostics. USDA, Agriculture Research Service. 33 p.

Technical Abstract: Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) are
fatal neurologic diseases that can affect several animal species and human
beings. There are four animal TSE agents found in the United States: scrapie
of sheep and goats; chronic wasting disease (CWD) of deer, elk, and moose;
transmissible mink encephalopathy (TME) and bovine spongiform encephalopathy
(BSE). Although the animal TSEs do not cause major death losses among US
livestock populations, they are important because of international trade
issues. The experience of the United Kingdom and Europe in dealing with the
vast majority of the world's BSE cases, serves as a reminder of the need for
continuing vigilance in monitoring risks for public health and research to
answer remaining questions around the pathogenesis and transmission of these
diseases. There remain questions on 1) cross-species transmissibility of
TSEs in livestock and wildlife; 2) the pathobiology of TSEs in natural and
secondary hosts; pathogenesis and transmission of CWD; and 4) pathogenesis
and ante mortem detection of typical and atypical BSE. Our understanding of
the pathogenesis and transmission of these diseases continues to evolve as
ongoing, global TSE research efforts focus on defining tissue sites of
abnormal prion accumulation, routes of infection, methods of strain
differentiation, genetics of susceptibility and ante-mortem diagnostics. In
this paper, a Subcommittee on Pathobiology and Diagnostics of TSEs for an
Interagency Working Group on Prion Science summarizes the science of animal
TSEs in order to identify knowledge gaps for the purpose of prioritizing
animal prion research needs. Because of substantial losses involving
international trade and potential risk for interspecies transmission to
susceptible livestock and possibly humans, the presence of BSE, CWD, scrapie
and TME in the United States presents a liability to U.S. domestic and
alternative livestock industries. In addition, the proven risk of BSE to
agriculture and public health from subclinical or clinically sick animals
requires science-based surveillance for any silent, unrecognized epizootic
expansions of these diseases in populations of animals that could either
directly or indirectly affect food animals. CWD is an example of an
uncontrolled expanding epidemic that threatens not only cervids but possibly
other livestock. CWD also has elicited public health surveillance programs
to monitor for scientific evidence of a prion disease in humans that consume
venison. Therefore, some of the research needs are precautionary, but the
risks to animal and human health from being caught unaware are high. Efforts
are being made by both federal and state regulatory agencies to eradicate
scrapie and CWD, and to determine the prevalence of BSE. The effectiveness
of these programs will depend heavily on having accurate information about
the nature of these diseases, not only in the original hosts, but also in
other species that may be in contact with infected animals.

RE-Monitoring the occurrence of emerging forms of Creutzfeldt-Jakob

disease in the United States

I lost my mother to hvCJD (Heidenhain Variant CJD). I would like to

comment on the CDC's attempts to monitor the occurrence of emerging

forms of CJD. Asante, Collinge et al [1] have reported that BSE

transmission to the 129-methionine genotype can lead to an alternate

phenotype that is indistinguishable from type 2 PrPSc, the commonest

sporadic CJD. However, CJD and all human TSEs are not reportable

nationally. CJD and all human TSEs must be made reportable in every

state and internationally. I hope that the CDC does not continue to

expect us to still believe that the 85%+ of all CJD cases which are

sporadic are all spontaneous, without route/source. We have many TSEs in

the USA in both animal and man. CWD in deer/elk is spreading rapidly and

CWD does transmit to mink, ferret, cattle, and squirrel monkey by

intracerebral inoculation. With the known incubation periods in other

TSEs, oral transmission studies of CWD may take much longer. Every

victim/family of CJD/TSEs should be asked about route and source of this

agent. To prolong this will only spread the agent and needlessly expose

others. In light of the findings of Asante and Collinge et al, there

should be drastic measures to safeguard the medical and surgical arena

from sporadic CJDs and all human TSEs. I only ponder how many sporadic

CJDs in the USA are type 2 PrPSc?

and have been searching for answers ever since. What I have found is that we
have not been told the truth. CWD
in deer and elk is a small portion of a much bigger problem.”

DOES ANYONE BESIDES ME SEE A PATTERN YET ???


Vickey Rimmer, 16, DID NOT DIE FROM nvCJD, she died from a form of sporadic
CJD, whatever the hell that is. and there have been 16 year old die from
sporadic CJD in the USA as well.

SIMPLY PUT, the ukbsenvcjd only theory was wrong from day one. the elderly
are expendable, pets and kids are not.

Science was dictated by 'big buisness' after the Vickey Rimmer case with the
ukbsenvcjd only myth.
