|4/3/2014 - Mad cow disease, more correctly known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), is a transmittable disease that affects the nervous systems of cows.

|4/25/2012 - It's baaack! Mad cow disease, our favorite prion from planet Bovinopolis, has once again reared its ugly folded protein head in a California dairy cow. It was detected there just a few days ago, but have no fear, courageous American beef eaters: U.S. "authorities" have declared it to be a "random mutation,"...
|2/21/2012 - Mad cow disease is a progressive brain-wasting disease. It is caused by a type of defective protein known as a prion and cannot be cured. The factory farming practices of feeding animals the nervous tissue of other animals first caused the ballooning spread of mad cow disease and created the current...
|1/27/2011 - Cancer and Alzheimer's disease are usually described as the two most dreaded health disorders. But there is probably no more ghastly way to suffer and inevitably die than to contract so-called mad cow disease or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Prions are known to cause mad cow disease, also termed bovine...
|1/20/2011 - A shocking new study has found that mad cow disease can be transmitted through the air.

|11/6/2009 - There are 14 billion hamburgers consumed each year in the United States alone. The people who eat those burgers, though, have little knowledge of what's actually in them. Current USDA regulations, for example, openly allow beef contaminated with E. coli to be repackaged, cooked and sold as ready-to-eat...
|8/20/2009 - There is probably no illness that has more terrifying symptoms, or a more ghastly outcome, than variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) -- best known as mad cow disease. Abnormal proteins called prions found in brain tissue of cows suffering from bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) can cause vCJD...

|11/13/2008 - A new screening test for variants of Creutzfeldt-Jakob diseases (vCJD), currently in final clinical trials, will reportedly identify those who harbor the disease in their blood. Early indications suggest that 1 of every 4,000 people tests positive. This is a substantially higher number than health experts...
|5/24/2008 - Greetings everyone, this is Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, here reporting for www.Naturalnews.com. I am currently in the rainforest of Southern Ecuador, high in the Andes Mountains.

The Saudi-born man, reported to the CDC by the...
|8/28/2006 - The June case of a bovine infected with mad cow disease -- the country's seventh since 2003 -- was most likely cased by contaminated feed at a manufacturing plant, concluded a Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) investigation Thursday.
Experts believe that bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)...
|7/20/2006 - The USDA is downsizing its mad cow surveillance program in response to the disease's reduced presence in America, according to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns.
Johanns said the surveillance program should "reflect what we now know is a very, very low level of BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy)...
|7/14/2006 - Canada has reported seven cases of mad cow disease since 2003, two of which were announced within the past two weeks.
Thursday's case, a 4-year-old dairy cow that died on a farm in Western Alberta, prompted U.S. Department of Agriculture officials to send an inspector to investigate the death. Inspectors...
|6/23/2006 - -- Livestock feed manufacturer H.J. Baker & Bro. has issued a recall for supplements sold in nine states that may have been contaminated with cattle remains, a violation of a 1997 ban meant to protect against the spread of mad cow disease.
Samples of two supplements added to dairy cattle feed tested...
|6/23/2006 - A new study of members of New Guinea's Fore tribe suggest that more people may die from past mad cow disease outbreaks. The study shows that tribe members who contracted a similar disease to mad cow through cannibalism may have lived for decades before finally succumbing. This leads some scientists...
|5/15/2006 - Mad cow disease was recently confirmed in a cow in Alabama, according to two tests conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Even so, the USDA seems just as reluctant as usual to admit that U.S. herds continue to be infected with mad cow disease. Even though the results of this second test have...
|9/14/2005 - Welcome to Mad Cow Madness! If you've ever wondered what's really going on with mad cow disease in the United States, here's the real story. Let's talk about this downer cow that was recently confirmed as having mad cow disease. It only took... let's see... seven months for the USDA to confirm that...
|8/6/2004 - Health experts in the UK are facing a potentially alarming situation regarding the human form of mad cow disease, otherwise known as vCJD.

|8/3/2004 - Scientists in California have created the first synthetic version of prions. These are the so-called "rogue proteins" that are responsible for mad cow disease.

|7/23/2004 - It's a frightening realization: not only is BSE -- the human equivalent of mad cow disease -- easily transmitted through blood transfusions, it can also strike patients previously thought to be immune to the disease. These findings reveal that a much wider portion of the world population is potentially...
|7/18/2004 - The USDA's mad cow disease testing program is a sham: it doesn't test many cows showing neurological symptoms, it falsified records of one cow to make sure it received "downer" status, and it doesn't test healthy-looking cattle at all! These are the accusations from the USDA's own inspector general...
|7/13/2004 - The FDA almost never takes action to protect the public. Instead, the agency's decisions consistently and almost universally protect the financial interests of influential corporations such as pharmaceutical companies or, in this case, beef industry companies. Mad cow disease is real, and it's here...
|7/12/2004 - The cosmetics industry is one of great duality: on one hand, their products help make people appear visually pleasing. On the other hand, the ingredients used to make those cosmetics are horrifying, if not downright gruesome. If most people knew what they were putting on their face and lips every day,...
|7/8/2004 - The USDA has done such a poor job investigating mad cow disease that even other countries like Japan are being forced to conduct their own investigations into the safety of U.S. beef. Hey, isn't that the USDA's job? Don't be silly. The job of the USDA is to promote U.S. agriculture and cattle ranchers...
|7/3/2004 - This is one of the most shocking reports ever issued by the French government: a mad cow disease epidemic swept through cow herds in that country -- entirely undetected by authorities. In the past 13 years, the report says, more than 300,000 cattle were infected, and 50,000 such cattle entered the human...
|1/30/2004 10:07:10 AM - When it comes to testing U.S. cattle for mad cow disease, the USDA
doesn't really want to mandate any sort of testing at all. Even with
countries like Japan banning all US beef due to our country's lack of
mandatory testing requirements, the USDA continues to resist creating
|1/17/2004 7:57:49 PM - Mad cow wouldn't be a problem in the first place if the beef industry
didn't grind up old, diseased cows and feed their parts to other cows.
That mad cow is appearing is simply an inevitable result of utterly
inhumane and filthy practices by corporate beef producers. Now, thanks
to this single...
|1/17/2004 9:27:52 AM - There's a tremendous amount of education coming out as a result of the
outbreak of mad cow disease on U.S. soil: fewer people are eating cow
fat and cow flesh, which will naturally make them healthier human
beings. As this article shows, the fear over mad cow is striking an
|1/16/2004 11:42:44 AM - Here's a must read article on mad cow disease. It focuses on the
comments from a professor at Northeastern University who says that

freezers all across the country. He goes on to state that the reason
the beef and cattle industries...
