Mad Cow Disease Returns?
It seems to have come again with a vengence as 30,000 people may currently carry the human form.
Mad cow disease in human form is called Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease [vCJD], and the people of Britain are fearing the worst as 30,000 citizens could be silent carriers.
The fatal, brain-eating disease found in cows can and will transfer over to humans. So far, 177 cases are confirmed in the United Kingdom. The World Health Organization reports that 49 more have been reported in 11 outside countries.
If this trend grows rapidly, it could become the year 2000 all over again.
Do you know anyone who has been affected by mad cow disease?
