Greetings list members,

IF we look at # 8 and # 9 cows, they seem to be very similar to the USA
positives that turn out to be negative all the time;

>8. 6/10/2003 Holstein Steer 13/10/2001 23 mths
> No clinical signs WB+, IHC-, HP-
>

>9. 4/11/2003 Holstein Steer 13/1/2002
>21 mths No clinical signs WB+, IHC-, HP-

NOW, what does the USDA say about negative IHC ;

> John Clifford of the USDA said in a statement that the negative IHC
> results "makes us confident that the animal in question is indeed
> negative."


SURE it does, i suppose this is why they refused to do a WB$

THUS, the infamous 'USA June 2004 ENHANCED BSE COVER-UP' continues, and
the agent continues to spread, expose and kill.

AGAIN, this administration will do _anything_ including lie and cover-up
any cases of mad cow disease of any phenotype, just to save there precious
commodity. THUS we all become exposed to this agent.

GOD save the industry at all cost, including human health...
