    This is from 3 years ago.

    The link still works.

    The danger is just as great.

    Perhaps even greater in the EU -

    + Meat back on menu for animal feed 20 years after BSE crisis

    Tuesday, 7 September 2010

    Meat could once again be fed to animals under plans to relax rules introduced to prevent the transmission of BSE more than 20 years after the emergence of "mad cow disease" caused a public health and political crisis.

    The European Commission has published proposals to reduce the cost of guarding against BSE and its human form, new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, which has claimed the lives of 169 British people. +


    + The European Commission said the prevention of risk should be maintained or increased under the changes. It added: "It is impossible, however, to consider the complete elimination of risk as a realistic objective for any risk management decision in matters regarding food safety, where the cost and benefits of risk-reducing measures have to be carefully weighed in order to ensure the measure's proportionality." +
    Translation - drink milk - eat cheese - eat meat - ......then wait for the new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease to kick in & your brain to go spongy!

    Thanks for the education. It is hard to believe the lack of standards after the crisis suffered not too long ago.

    When faced with science, facts, and reason, it is astonishing that folks would continue to put their welfare and family's welfare at risk to partake in a certain beverage or snack. The health risks already were so damning without these risks piled on top, as were the disgraceful methods of tending these animals without this too.

    Go Vegan y'all!

Keep HappyCow Growing Strong!
