>>>SEC. JOHANNS: "On the first question, you know I thought about what they are saying, and I must admit it doesn't make a lot of sense to me. And here is why. Japan has now recorded; I believe their 20th BSE case. Their animals are older animals. The animals that we will start importing into Japan are 20 months and younger, and there just isn't a situation where you'd find BSE in an animal that young.

"So what they're saying doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Under what we're proposing with Japan, what they're saying just, there just isn't a possibility that that would occur. You're not going to find BSE in animals 20 months and younger.<<<

THE myth that cattle under 30 months of age are free from BSE/TSE is
just that, a myth,
and it's a false myth !

the youngest age of BSE case to date is 20 months old; As at: 31 May

The implications of the Swiss result for Britain, which has had the most
BSE, are complex. Only cattle aged 30 months or younger are eaten in
Britain, on the assumption, based on feeding trials, that cattle of that
age, even if they were infected as calves, have not yet accumulated
enough prions to be infectious. But the youngest cow to develop BSE on
record in Britain was 20 months old, showing some are fast incubators.
Models predict that 200-300 cattle under 30 months per year are infected
with BSE and enter the food chain currently in Britain. Of these 3-5
could be fast incubators and carrying detectable quantities of prion.

even if one believes that scrapie does not transmit to humans (without
scientific proof and realizing
scrapie transmits to primates) what about the potential for BSE in
sheep/goats and what about the
many different tissues that are infectious ?
