U.S. slams door on revising S. Korea beef

import pact Pressed at home, Seoul had wanted 30-month limit on age of the cattle

well, so the U.S. slams the mad cow door on Korea and it's people, due to the bungled beef deal the USDA shoved down Lee's throat. sadly, Lee signed the deal oblivious to what really has been going on behind closed doors for years here in the USA, and the USDA et al knew they had a fish on the line. my God, this guy was totally ignorant of what they were doing. now the kind honorable people of Korea will be force fed USDA certified beef. beef that has been highly suspect of mad cow disease since the USDA shut down testing, this after finding two cases of the atypical BSE in Alabama and Texas. remember, atypical BSE is more virulent than the UK BSE strain. Also, it seems the O.I.E. has sealed the deal on trading all strains of TSE i.e. mad cow disease strains globally, all for a buck, commodities and futures, to hell with human health. it's business as usual folks, eat up, and die old and demented, if your lucky. I must apologize to the kind honorable citizens of Korea for what my Government has done. I tried. But as the USDA certified beef starts to flood Korean markets, remember one thing Korea, you don't have to buy it. let it rot, until the USDA et al gets there head out of their pockets, and start to test all food producing cattle and all livestock for BSE and all TSE. CJD is a slow death while incubating. so you will not see the body bags all at once. as in the past here, it will be labeled as dementia, misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's and other dementia ailments. it will become an acceptable death as here in the USA due to the push by the industries and your Government due to the financial aspect of it. The OIE and my Government sold their souls to the devil, and if you don't believe me, just read the history. let it all be sporadic and or spontaneous they say, and make them eat it, and like it. that's their motto. to hell with the consumer. Every American and Korean consumer should be demanding 100% BSE/TSE mad cow testing on all livestock food producing animals, for humans and animals. This should be a no-brainer, but instead, it's a brain eater. Consumption of beef is but only one route of many, that can kill you from mad cow disease (all strains). friendly fire i.e. iatrogenic CJD from the medical and surgical arenas, dental, and blood, all are a real threat, from 2nd, 3rd, 4th passage, from someone that consumed meat from an animal with TSE. They can be long incubators, not clinical yet, but they can go on and infected many more via these routes, so please do not get hung up on the 'hamburger only' route. this is one of many routes, from one of many strains, from only one species. WE must take all Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies as the real threat they really are. DO NOT let the incubation period of all these documented TSEs in cattle, sheep, goats, deer, elk, mink, cats, do not let them fool you. The long term threat is very real, it's been real, and it's been ignored, all the while CJD is rising in the USA. all the time the USA has been shipping cattle and feed to God knows whom. again, it was the OIE, the USDA et al, and their BSE MRR (Minimal Risk Region) rule, that opened the gates to the exporting of all strains of TSE globally. This new rule set back the eradication BSE to the stone age, or back to day one in or around 1985, when BSE was first _documented_. The BSE MRR policy erased all attempted eradication of BSE. This will be one more of GWs et al sad, sad legacies that will go down in history as nothing more than what the UK did back when they failed to warn the world of their tainted cattle, MBM (greaves) etc. they just continued to ship it around the globe. BUT what the OIE, GW, and the USDA did was simply made it legal i.e. BSE MRR, the legal trading of all strains of TSE globally $$$

Export Requirements for the Republic of Korea IMPORT HEALTH REQUIREMENTS FOR U.S. BEEF AND BEEF PRODUCTS

Why Americans, As Well as Koreans, Should Be Worried About Mad Cow Tainted USA Beef

By Terry S. Singeltary Sr. May 15, 2008

Straight to the Source

Web Note: This is an important commentary by Terry S. Singeltary Sr., on a recent Business Week story on the controversy in South Korea over their government's lifting on the ban on conventional (non-organic) beef, despite the fact that the USDA is still allowing slaughterhouse waste and blood and manure to be fed to cows, and refusing to test all cows at slaughter. See the Mad Cow section of the OCA website for in-depth information. Terry is a regular blogger on the OCA website on Mad Cow issues.

Ronnie Cummins

One Korean official says the probability of a human being catching a mad cow disease by eating U.S. beef is like the one of a golf player scoring a hole-in-one and then being killed by lightning.

this is typical BSe. you here industry groups comment 'your more likely to get hit by a car than die from CJD'. well, maybe so, but my mother and many more did not die from getting hit by a car, they died from CJD, my mothers being the hvCJD (confirmed), and my neighbors mother died from CJD (confirmed). the UKBSEnvCJD _only_ theory is incorrect. there are more strains of mad cow than the UK BSE in beef to nvCJD in humans in the UK. The deception by the USDA, FDA, and the Bush administration about mad cow disease, CJD, and all Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy over the past 8 years have been outrageous, to a point of being criminal. I am vested in nothing, but the truth.
