Published Thursday March 26, 2009 Lawmakers seek delay of new mad cow rules

WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of Congress are asking the federal government to delay new rules intended to keep mad cow disease out of the food supply.

Led by Rep. Adrian Smith, R-Neb., and joined by Missouri Rep. Roy Blunt, the lawmakers say the new rules create problems for getting rid of cattle carcasses. The new rule is supposed to take effect April 27.

The rule prohibits the use of the brains and spinal cords of older cattle as ingredients in livestock feed and pet food. Livestock and agricultural groups have complained this will make getting rid of cattle carcasses more costly and put rendering plants out of business.

Mad cow is a brain disease linked to more than 150 human deaths worldwide. The U.S. has had no known human cases of mad cow linked to U.S. beef.

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF POUNDS OF MAD COW FEED IN COMMERCE USA WITH ONGOING 12 YEARS OF DENIAL NOW, WHY IN THE WORLD DO WE TO TALK ABOUT THIS ANYMORE $$$

LET's go back to the infamous TOKEN, charade, that happened on January 30, 2001, at the Texas Purina feed lot around Gonzales. NOW remember, this thing was set up from the word go, as to some big showing that the FDA was DOING SOMETHING BIG. let's look at exactly what was said then, and then i will run some figures by you, of what banned mad cow feed has gone into commerce, of which most was fed out. but, as wrong as the comments made were about what amount of infectious material will kill a cow in this statement, even if you were to go by those wrong figures of about .......... oh what was it ???

''FDA has determined that each animal could have consumed, at most and in total, five-and-one-half grams - approximately a quarter ounce -- of prohibited material. These animals weigh approximately 600 pounds.''


http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/news/2001/new00752.html


you can take that with how ever many grains of salt you wish, but i read that as saying, it was only 5 1/2 grams, and the old cow ways 600 pounds, so know way that even if the feed was tainted, there was not enough to cause disease. the fda, usda et al, knew at that exact moment when they wrote that statement, they knew then that the 5 1/2 grams was enough to kill a small herd of cows. it was old science. but again, they chose to deceive. THIS WAS 2001, and it's now 2009, and they still are choosing to deceive, and the new administration appears willing to continue the USA mad cow charade. NOW, since the charade at the purina mill in 2001, i am going to list a few figures of suspect, banned mad cow feed that went out into commerce, even in 2008, 2007, 2006, back a few years, and you can compare, what enormous amounts of banned suspect mad cow feed and other products continue to go out. when you consider, and they knew all along, that .005 grams is lethal, my God, how much of this poison was consumed?
