Did anyone watch the programme on BBC2 tonight? I caught only the last 10 mins but it was bloody scary! Because of greed for cheaper ways to feed animals and produce meat, cows were fed meat and crushed bones etc culminating in mad cow disease. 178 known deaths have occurred since the outbreak in the 90s...some people infected of course may have died already of something else. But scientists admit the incubation period could be up to 50 years before symptoms take place. They are pretty sure many people are living their life unaware that in time they will suddenly trigger the man made disease which will prove fatal. So bad is it that anyone over the age of about 38 (if they lived in UK between 1980-92 or close to that) cannot give blood in a foreign country because of the risk of incubation!
