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

Greetings list members,

SEEMS a good opportunity to do a CJD case study on the Mexican
population, from the real possibility of USA TSE tainted bovine
brains being sent there. WONDER what the Mexican population would
do if they knew the true nature of USA feeding practices and the lack
of scientific protocol for this stupid BSE MRR policy. ITs not going
anywhere anytime soon, and I will not shut up until it does. THIS
damn policy will expose us all, especially the Citizens of Mexico by
looking at these exports from the USA. HOW in the hell can USA
bovine brains be classified as SRM here in the USA, but not in Mexico?
I understand the USA is still selling bovine brains via supplements for
humans, but this practices was suppose to have stopped. However,
after lifting that catolog full of SRMs from that supplements company
several weeks ago, that was left by a chiropractor still able to sell the
things by traveling door to door to doctors offices, I find it
disturbing that
we are shipping USA bovine brains to consumers without any testing
what so ever for BSE/TSE. According to SAGARPA "NO SRM AND BONE-IN" is
being imported to Mexico. BUT, what have we here ?

Pathological Prion Protein in the Tongues of Sheep Infected with
Naturally Occurring Scrapie

Received 12 July 2004/ Accepted 1 December 2004

Tongue involvement by prion spreading was shown to be a common outcome
after oral or intracranial experimental challenge with scrapie and
transmissible mink encephalopathy sources in rodent models. It is also
known that bovine spongiform encephalopathy, which is pathogenic for
humans, is experimentally transmissible to sheep and can lead to a
disease indistinguishable from scrapie. A recent European Food Safety
Authority opinion recommended research into PrPsc accumulation in the
tongues of ruminants. We report on the detection of PrPsc in the tongues
of seven scrapie-infected sheep by immunohistochemistry and Western
blotting.
