##################### Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy #####################

(Tokyo-AP) Oct. 14, 2004 - Japan is confirming its 14th case of mad cow
disease.

This comes as the country is considering easing its standards on
imported beef and is in talks with the US about lifting its ban on imports.

It's the second case of the brain-wasting disease in a month. Officials
are now trying to trace the feed that the cow had been given and other
details about its recent habits.

Tokyo has checked every slaughtered cow before it entered the food
supply since 2001 after its first discovery of mad cow disease. It has
insisted that Washington do the same before it lifts its ban on US beef.

The US, however, has refused to conduct the checks, saying the process
is costly and ineffective.
