Again ... I have close personal Friend who died from a Prion Disease a couple of Years ago, and as a young Biology Student back in the late 1960s I had already heard of "Scrapie" ... So I HAVE "kept up" for several Reasons of my own ...


There is (as yet)  NO  EVIDENCE   that Transmissable Prion Diseases are caught by eating a Beef Steak or a Hamburger ...  As I HAVE indicated (repeatedly, below), however, I think that "Brains" of ANY Species are to be avoided ...

Ummm....MY  info comes from the CDC,as linked for you to have read and learned.If you think you are a more reliable and knowledgeable source on vCJD than the Center for Disease Control,then please state why,with proof.Until then,your opinion is what is suspect,not the scientists charged with studying the disease as part of the public health defense against it.
