- Dear Friends,
I enjoyed listening to Howard Lyman on
Coast-To-Coast radio early this morning.
I battled sleep, but the show was way too
interesting to turn off.
When asked whether Mad Cow Disease could
be transferred from cows to humans in milk,
"I grew up on the largest dairy farm in the state
of Montana. Every dairy farmer knows that
there is a trace of blood in milk. Mad cow
disease is transferred in blood."
Makes sense to me. Try and give blood. A
standard question asked on the form is whether
or not you lived in England. If you answer yes,
they will not accept your body fluids. We may
be exposed to Mad Cow-infected body fluids
in milk and dairy products.
The Food and Drug Administration allows no more
than 750 million somatic cells in one liter of American
milk. Somatic cells are dead white and red blood
cells. Somatic cells are pus. It may sound delicious
to some, but consider this. The infectious particle
(PRION) responsible for causing Mad Cow Disease
was not destroyed in laboratory tests after being
exposed to 1000 degree Fahrenheit heat treatment.
WHEN IRISH EYES ARE NOT SMILING
A new mass screening mad cow test in Ireland
has revealed some shocking news. Irish cattle
are infected at a higher rate than has been
Of 2,500 animals tested, 54 were found to have
Mad Cow Disease. That's 2%, or one out of fifty.
Let's put that into perspective. If you lived in Ireland
and ate meat once each week, the odds are that you
would have eaten infected meat. It's a gamble.
Would you get Cruetzfeld-Jacob disease, the human
variant of Mad Cow Disease? This brain wasting
disease takes between ten and forty years to develop.
During that period, your brain slowly turns into
a sponge like mass.
The government regulator charged with overseeing
Ireland's meat industry, Brid Rogers, said that this
new discovery should not give rise to new consumer
Art Bell is back. Ian Punnet is his weekend host. Let
Art know that he should host a NOTMILK/MADCOW
show on his regular Monday-Friday program. Let Art
know that Howard and I have done many shows
together, and we'd do a classic show on this subject.
