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

Greetings list members,


I know this is not a TSE, but since i refused cadaver bone and
blood due to the risk factor of CJD and then they damn near
kill me with MRSA, and the fact the USA cattle or so pumped
up with antibiotics due to the fact they are so diseased before
slaughter, i thought some on this list should be aware of this.
NEXT thing you will hear is that they are now infected with the
VRSA, and then you are sh!t out of luck. I know, mine almost
went there but the upped the vanco. to some 2000 megs twice
a day and if finally worked, but there is no cure for the VRSA,
and it is just the next step...

Superbug found in UK livestock

Vets say don't panic over MRSA

Source: FWi 31 March 2005

By Farmers Weekly staff

THE BRITISH Veterinary Association has urged farmers not to panic over
reports of the disease Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus
arising in animals.

The MRSA bacterium, branded a superbug by the media, is normally
associated with hospital patients.

But a study by vets has now revealed that the bug is also present in
animals.

In an attempt to quell fears BVA president elect Freda Scott-Park played
down concerns of animal to human transmission.

"The alarm being generated is completely unnecessary," said Dr Scott-Park.

"It is important for people to realise that the incidence is still very,
very low and those who undertake hygienic precautions are at minimal risk."
