UPDATE: via Bloomberg:

*MEAT FROM ANIMAL DID NOT ENTER FOOD CHAIN, USDA SAYS

*COW WITH MAD-COW DISEASE CONFIRMED IN CALIFORNIA, USDA SAYS

Rumors of the return of bovine spongiform encephalopathy - or mad cow disease - in the US as the USDA conducts a conference to discuss the potential find of an infected animal has sent Live and Feeder Cattle futures limit-down and back to almost 8 month lows prices. The find has been confirmed, according to The Farmer-Stockman. Now, where is that zombie survival chart?

Farmer Brown
who was bald on top
said he wished he could
rotate the crop

Farmer Brown, after offering his fence posts  naming rights to Burma Shave for sinage to recapture lost revenue from his now semi-quarantinened dairy herd supposedly being purchased by AID for distribution to rocket scientists in N Korea and Iran, revealed today that his cow found infeced with BSE had been of late frequently taking meals in the Senate Dining Room.

Lots of comments here mentioning prions as settled science.  Not so sure, myself. To get you started, see

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Purdey

Purdey found a link between BSE and soils depleted of copper and selenium while simultaneously abnomally high in manganese. Interesting enough to make me question the standard "prion" story. 

That Mush for brains has a nutritional component, and that "conventionally" raised cattle should suffer health effects should surprise no one.  Pastured meat is the way to go.

Did he postulate a cause for soils depleted of copper and selenium while simultaneously abnomally high in manganese? If that is a naturally random occurrence wouldn't pastured meat has the same or similar issues?

Btw, did he do his research in Washington D.C.? There's obviously a high concentration of mush for brains there, but may be too small a sample size.

Here's another one:

"Tree disease threatens $2 billion California citrus industry

(Reuters) - California orange and lemon growers are bracing for a deadly bacterial disease that could ravage the state's $2 billion citrus industry after the first infected tree in the state was identified in a suburban Los Angeles yard."

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/20/us-usa-citrus-california-idUSB...

It's all orchestrated. Pure Keynesians desperation. Anything to make food prices go up.

"Never in our history have we dealt with a disease that is this persistent, and we have searched the world for 50 years and have not been able to find resistance to this bacteria," Batkin said.

Make the lie BIG!

"State agricultural officials have set up a quarantine area of some 20,700 square miles (53,600 square km) to prevent potentially infected fruit from leaving a region that spans six California counties."

Translation: state agricultural hitmen are going to stage a quarantine in a large area, then infect those trees while no one is looking.

"Growers are worried that if the disease spreads north it could wreak havoc on the prized orchards in California's Central Valley, the heart of the state's $2 billion citrus industry, causing significant losses in revenue and jobs."

But smart growers and land owners know that prices will rise as a result, so in the long run, they'll be more profitable. They just need to weather the storm. Got cash?

"The March 30 detection has sent growers racing to set up bug traps, hoping to stave off the advance of a deadly pathogen that already has cost billions of dollars in damage to citrus crops in Florida since 2005."

This alone will make prices go up.

"The state and the industry have spent millions of dollars to curtail a potential outbreak of the disease, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture."

Why would the state spend money to curtail the problem? I'm baffled. If they let the trees get infected, then production will go down (temporarily) and prices will go up. Eventually production will return to normal, yet prices will stay high. If prices are higher, then revenue goes up, and if revenue goes up, growers will pay more in income taxes. And, property values will go up, higher property values = higher property taxes.

Can someone please explain why it is in the state's interest to save these trees?????????? You'd think they would try to destroy the trees, right??? Don't you think??

NAH - THEY WOULD NEVER DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT!

THE STATE WOULD NEVER:

* BURN THE CROPS

* SLAUGHTER THE HOGS

* DUMP THE MILK

...TO MAKE PRICES GO UP! NEVER!

That doesn't sound all that Keynesian to me. Why have deadly bacteria do all the work? Even if they're highly paid, it would only take a mad scientist or two to grow the bacteria which would really do all of the dirty work.

Unless maybe they're planning on hiring thousands of workers to dig up the trees and thousands more to fill in the holes, of course.

Ever get the feeling that vegetarians consider themselves morally superior to you? Like they think that not eating meat makes them so special that their shit doesn't stink? As if when someone stops eating meat, they suddenly become holy and dignified and it excuses them for the years of inconvenience and frustration they inevitably inflict upon their friends, family and co-workers who just want to go to a restaurant and order a damn steak without constantly being reminded that they're going to hell for eating an animal that spends most of its life shitting in a field. There are those of us who don't have a hyperactive sense of guilt and we don't give a shit about your mixed up self-righteous moral vegetarian agenda.

Vegetarians could be affected as well, at least according to some:

 

"Not even vegetarians are immune: white sugar is bleached with cow bones, and McDonalds French fries, advertised as prepared in “pure vegetable oil,” are seasoned–like many products with “natural flavors”–with beef fat."

"Not only meat, but many processed foods, drugs, vaccines, surgical instruments, dietary supplements and even cosmetics may carry this plague,"

Even if the disease isn't a threat to you personally, it could certainly affect family, friends, loved ones, employers, employees, customers etc.

There could also potentially be an economic effect on health care, bailouts for ranchers, and might even make the cost of your fruits and vegetables jump if consumers suddenly run from eating meat.

I guess you all missed this

https://leisureguy.wordpress.com/2007/03/23/or-is-it-not-alzheimers-but-...

Or is it not Alzheimer’s, but mad-cow disease?

The March 21, 2007 edition of the New York Times featured an article called “Prevalence of Alzheimer’s Rises 10% in 5 Years.” It began: “More than five million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, a 10 percent increase from the last official tally five years ago, and a number expected to more than triple by 2050.” Alzheimer’s disease, it seems, now afflicts 13% of people 65 and over, and 42% of those past 85.

The piece also reported “the startling finding that 200,000 to 500,000 people younger than 65 have some form of early onset form of dementia, including a rare form of Alzheimer’s disease that strikes people in their 30s and 40s.” The Times adds: “Apart from early onset cases, the primary risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease is age.”

But, dear reader, there’s a cow-shaped risk factor sitting in the corner-ignored by the newspaper of record (and essentially all major media outlets). And it’s a very mad cow.

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) has earned the pithy nickname “mad cow disease” thanks to the invidious symptoms presented in affected cattle, i.e. staggering, tremors, involuntary muscle spasms, bewilderment, hypersensitivity to auditory and tactile stimuli, and other examples of seemingly “mad” behavior.

Like BSE, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) is also a transmissible, invariably fatal spongiform encephalopathy with a prolonged incubation period that leaves sponge-like holes in a victim’s brain. CJD, however, is the human version and this includes a newly identified variant of CJD, linked to BSE in British cattle.

“In humans,” says author and environmentalist, Peter Montague, “the BSE-like disease is called ‘new variant Creutzfeld-Jacob disease,’ or nvCJD for short. CJD has been recognized for a long time as a rare disease of the elderly—very similar to Alzheimer’s disease—but nvCJD is different. It has somewhat different symptoms, a different pattern of disintegration in the brain, and it strikes young people, even teenagers. Between 1995 and early 1998, at least 23 people died of nvCJD in Britain and at least one in France, the oldest of them age 42 and the youngest 15.” (Yet the Times is “startled” by the rise in dementia in younger and younger people.)

“CJD robs victims of lucidity, control and life over a period ranging from six months to three years from the onset of symptoms, which can take from 10 to 40 years to manifest,” writes journalist Gabe Kirchheimer. According to Nobel Prize winner Stanley B. Prusiner, fatal neurodegenerative diseases of animals and humans (like BSE and CJD) are thought to be caused by infectious proteins called “prions.” Perhaps what is most disquieting about this hypothesis is that, unlike viruses and bacteria, prions remain infectious even after being baked at 680° F for on hour (enough to melt lead), bombarded with radiation, and/or soaked in formaldehyde, bleach, and boiling water.

“CJD is 100 percent fatal,” adds Kirchheimer. “There is no treatment or cure. As no blood test for the living is available, CJD has been definitively diagnosed only through brain biopsy.”

Studies cited by Kirchheimer indicate it is likely that “tens or even hundreds of thousands of people are dying right now of undiagnosed or misdiagnosed CJD.” Government figures estimate approximately 200 to 300 cases of CJD have been diagnosed in the U.S. Before you take comfort in that modest figure, bear in mind the findings of John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton. The authors of Mad Cow USA learned that while some four million Americans (at the time) had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, autopsies revealed roughly 25% of alleged Alzheimer’s deaths were caused instead by other forms of dementia. One percent of these misdiagnosed deaths have been ultimately attributed to CJD. If this trend is extrapolated and one percent of the now five million Americans with Alzheimer’s actually have CJD (or nvCJD), the nationwide estimate rises dramatically from 200 to 50,000 cases.

GF----It amazes me that our gbmt won't allow BSE testing of cattle. You might be interested in a docu "Under Our Skin". I got it thru NFLX, but u can watch it in segments on youtube. Numerous neurological diseases have been linked to lyme disease caused by a spirochete. My mother died a long grueling death from Parkinsons & I also have a cousin stricken by it. In this docu, it links this to not only Parkinsons but also Alzhiemers & numerous other maladies. 9 doctors connected with drug, insurance companies & universities came up with the CDC treatment protocal lasting only 2 weeks which is all that health insurance will pay for. Most doctors can't even diag much less treat lyme. A friend in VA got it & had to go to a dr. in MD to get it treated properly. The insurance companies are literally bringing suits against drs. ignoring the 2 week treatment protocal & successfully getting their licenses revoked & driving them into bankruptcy. In the docu it shows a young girl in her early 20's with Parkinsons symptoms. A Harvard doctor studied the brains of 10 alzhiemers patients & linked 7 out of 10 to lyme. Ironically, b4 he could complete his research, he too got alzhiemers. When u see how ins. co's, univ's & the ama have the witholding of treatment sewn up lock stock & smoking barrel it will make ur blood boil. It's well worth ur time.

Well, if you're ever in a situation when you have to, just remember to remove the brains and spinal column carefully to not contaminate the rest of the meat (most likely place the prions concentrate). Hey, I was just thinking that in a post Apocalyptic world we may need all the usable protein we can get! This is why I'm wary of the pink slime....to easy to throw these "hot" parts in and grind it up. Yeah and then dousing it with ammonia if that would do any good. Prions scare the hell out of me.. Basically game over.

Titor right again!

Fact is, they've cut the money to look for mad cow disease (because the FDA are bought and paid for by the meat industry) and the whole ``we can detect it just by looking how cows walk`` is total bunk.

Most people have probably already eaten mad cow disease infected meat.

And guess what, it might take up to 30 years for symptoms to appear... and the symptoms are the SAME ONES as alzeihmer... so probably a whole lot people have died from it and don't know it. Thing is, mad cow disease wasn't around 20 years ago... so me thinks in the future we'll see a shitload of people with mad cow disease from all the contaminated meat eaten from the last decade...

http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/9347413-andrew-carlssin-the-ma...

On January 28, 2003, A man named Andrew Carlssin being led by the FBI at the request of the SEC (Security and Exchange Commission) for interrogation on suspicion of insider trading. Suspicions that began when the SEC learned that Carlssin managed to increase their portfolio worth $ 800 to $ 350,000,000 in just two weeks. He put on 126 portfolios of risky trading decisions without even fail.

For years, the greatest trader on Wall Street suffered heavy losses due to exceptional market volatility. So when Carlssin experiencing an extraordinary gain of 126 trading decisions, traders become suspicious.

In his interrogation in the presence of the FBI, 44-year-old Carlssin provide exceptional explanation how he got such wealth. He admitted that he was from the year 2256.

The FBI says, "We're still trying to ferret out the source of it in trading. He will remain in jail until we get d information. "

During four hours of interrogation, Carlssin say that he is a time traveler, a native of the year 2256. He said, "I can not help myself, and I have been trying to look natural, to make me lose a little here, a little there. But it seems I get carried away with the atmosphere. "

Carlssin admitted that he came from the year 2256 in which knowledge about stock market volatility is something that is so common that every person who knows the history of the stock market to take advantage of it. To prove his claim, Carlssin provide predictions about the exact date the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and he gave the exact date. Carlssin also offers to let you know the location of Osama Bin Laden and cure for AIDS. All he wanted was released and allowed back into his time machine.

When asked, Carlssin refused to tell the location of machine time or discuss how it works for fear the technology could fall into the wrong hands. Of course the FBI does not just believe the story Carlssin. But a source from the SEC acknowledged that no one can trace the origins Carlssin before December 2002. Carlssin as if it never existed before.

However, the story of Carlssin not stop there. Carlssin story suddenly disappeared and never tilt again. Similarly existence. No media covered it again. The SEC and the FBI even then deny that they ever catch Carlssin. His lawyer said that Carlssin should meet with him to the hearing in court on April 2, 2003, but he does not appear, go away.

Carlssin was lying. He wasn't a time traveler. He just had The Device.

As you may know, light can travel at many times the speed of light in a VACUUM if instead it travels thru certain other substances. If a laser is sent thru a tube of cesium vapor, it can travel 300 times or more faster than does in a vacuum ( http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v406/n6793/full/406277a0.html ). Due to relativistic effects, it therefore exits the chamber before it even enters, but the "prelay" (opposite of delay, also referred to as the "gain" in time) is very short. By feeding the exiting beam back into the input, and so on and on in an endless loop, prelays of much longer can be achieved. Carlssin had a close relationship with someone who worked in the secret lab at DARPA. She would encode test beams with stock market data, and retrieve them...up to 8 days BEFORE she sent them. She would then give the data to Carlssin.

Any questions?

There could be some truth to that. According to a lot of scientists in the UK, millions there are likely already infected, and anyone who is ultimately falls ill (a few decades later.) I was in England about ten years ago after a major outbreak of Mad Cow and people were terrified everywhere you went. There were stories in the press almost every day about people killing themselves because they believed they were infected, or maybe knew they were. Everyone even came up with some name for such people, can't remember what it was.

Transmission pathway is through rendering industry. There is a BSE analog that effects deer and other hoofed animals/downer cattle/road kill. Carcasses are rendered into animal feed supplements particularly bone meal. this is fed to animals in CAFOs including chickens.

USDA prohibits spinal viscera and spinal column material in food however bone-stripping technology puts this material in 'pink slime'. Ammonia does not effect BSE prions: diseased 'products' are fed to school children.

Problems in UK were centered around knackers, who rendered cattle bones and connective tissue, this material found its way into hamburger.

The same disease is scrapie in sheep, it's been around for a long time.

Thanks for the correction on that. You are pretty much correct. About 10 years ago I was in England not long after a big outbreak there. It was widely believed then that the grazing lands themselves were contaminated with the fungus (that's the "spongiform" in bovine spongiform encepholopathy) because it had been shown that the fungus was present in the urine of infected animals and so it spread by there urinating and eating grass. That's why they banned feed made from the remains of ruminants (animals that graze - and it's still banned in England.) But as I just learned, more current research seems to indicate that it seems to more often come from eating bone meal and other products derived from infected animals. However, the fungus has been detected in numerous tests on grass. Google this and most any source you'll find says the jury is still out and that it can be spread in all these ways, but that most scientists believe it is most often spread by what you stated. Thanks.

I've had been a wife of a cattle rancher in California, central valley. 

In fact, the corrals where the cattle are kept, from birth to milk production or slaughter, have waste that is drained into a holding pond which is used to irrigate the nearby fields.  The hard waste is collected with a bulldozer, treated and used as fertilizer.  The soil is depleted from decades of planting crops around the year (winter wheat).  The cheapest fertilizer is the waste from the cattle.  The corn grown in our fields is used as feed.

I don't know how you could argue this point unless you have never seen a ranch in California.

Manures contribute to the fertility of the soil by adding organic matter and nutrients, such as nitrogen, that are trapped by bacteria in the soil. Higher organisms then feed on the fungi and bacteria in a chain of life that comprises the soil food web.It is also a product obtained after decomposition of organic matter like cow-dung which replenishes the soil with essential elements and add humus to the soil.

The real cause of "mad cow disease" and almost all the new neuro-degenerative diseases such as MS, Parkinson's, "Chronic Fatique Syndrome", Fibromyalgia, Alzheimer's, Crohn's Colitis, etc., etc., etc. is something called the "mycoplasma" or "prion" which was specifically created by the U.S. military (at Fort Detrick* and elsewhere) to slowly kill the people of the West, especially the women:

*Fort Detrick, Maryland is where both AIDS and Mycoplasma were engineered and perfected since it began its chemical and biological warfare research in 1942, and was converted to fight the so-called "War on CANCER" in 1971 by Presidente Tricky Dicky.

The "CANCER" they were fighting and ARE fighting are the "USELESS EATERS" of the world.

For an explanation of how AIDS (specifically created to kill off the people of Africa and other resource rich nations) and the Mycoplasma are related:

I admit I haven't checked your links out but there's a real difference between mycoplasma and the stubborn diseases caused by that class of infectious agent and prions, which cause the holes in brains -- which is why it is called a spongiform encephalopathy: literally a sponge-forming brain disease.

The other things, I think the jury is still out and I'm willing to bet that there is an infectious agent in there for some that sets off the immune system but let's not conflate extremes.

You bring up an interesting point in history that nobody knows about.  And no, cannibals do not have a gene that protects them from prions or Mycoplasma.

This whole "mad cow disease" really started with the Japanese (Unit 731 under General Dr. Ishii Shiro) experimenting on the Fore Tribe in New Guinea in 1942. They inoculated the tribe members "with a minced-up version of the brains of diseased 
sheep containing the visna virus which causes "mad cow disease" or CreutzfeldtJakob disease."

The Fore Tribe were cannibals who would eat the brains of their loved ones as a tribute to them when they die.  As the following article explains (http://www.whale.to/m/scott7.html):

 

"About five or six years later, after the Japanese had been driven out, the poor people of the Fore tribe developed what they called kuru, which was their word for "wasting", and they began to shake, lose their appetites and die. The autopsies revealed that their brains had literally turned to mush. They had contracted "mad cow disease" from the Japanese experiments.  

 

"When World War II ended, Dr Ishii Shiro--the medical doctor who was commissioned as a General in the Japanese Army so he could take command of Japan's biological warfare development, testing and deployment--was captured. He was given the choice of a job with the 

United States Army or execution as a war criminal. Not surprisingly, Dr Ishii Shiro chose to work with the US military to demonstrate how the Japanese had created mad cow disease in the Fore Indian tribe.  

 

"In 1957, when the disease was beginning to blossom in full among the Fore people, Dr Carleton Gajdusek of the US National Institutes of Health headed to New Guinea to determine how the minced-up brains of the visna-infected sheep affected them. He spent a couple of years there, studying the Fore people, and wrote an extensive report. He won the Nobel Prize for "discovering" kuru disease in the Fore tribe."

Prions are malformed proteins, or perhaps something only slightly more complex than that. They are not alive and do not appear associated with any kind of virus. They are the smallest disease-forming particle known. Since they have no cellular features nor any kind of genetic component they cannot reproduce normally, not even the way that virus do. Instead prions spread in the host only by inducing the same malformation in normal proteins, sort of a "borg assimilation" kind of thing. The resulting increase in a malformed protein overwhelms the hosts ability to function normally.

Prions are found naturally and harmlessly in yeasts and fungi where the purpose of the protein (if any) is unknown.

They are fascinating subjects, and challenge our definition of what is alive and what is not. But I don't see how it is reasonable to assume they are the product of mad science at the Pentagon.

Mycoplasma on the other hand are altogether a different kind of thing and unrelated to prions. They are bacteria without cell walls (and so somewhat immune to antibiotics that target the walls) but otherwise having proper genetics and the ability to reproduce in the usual manner of living organisms, via cellular division. The first mycoplasms were isolated from a woman with untreatable pneumonia, named Henrietta Lacks, and it killed her. However the cells from her lungs proved exceptionally hardy in the lab and were studied at great length. The discovery was named after her, called HeLa. HeLa are so hard to detect and so resistant to decontamination that cancer research centers are on constant lookout for HeLa infections in their research samples, and not uncommonly radical new discoveries of cancer cells turn out to be nothing more than HeLa having slipped into the glassware. Thus making Henrietta Lacks the most studied and feared woman on the face of the earth. Funny if sad, and very true.

As a matter of fact I did write a paper on the subject in graduate school.

Listen to the radio show before you write another word.

HeLa cells were derived from a cervical cancer, not pneumonia infected lungs and have little to do with mycoplasma.

If you wrote a graduate paper on it, did you fail?  Because HeLa is the cell lineage of her cervical cancer which is utilized in cancer research and the cervical cancer is what killed her...

Or, I should say both, since both cancerous and non cancerous cells were taken from her.  The primary research lineage is actually her healthy ones...

From the small amount of research I have done, prions were around long before anything was ever done by the U.S. army.

 

Kuru as a disease of cannibals in New Guinea predates Fort Detrick by a century or two.

Kuru disease or "mad cow disease" or CJD, etc. were not found in the Fore Tribe until 1957.  If they had it for a century or two, there wouldn't have been any members left for the Americans to discover in 1957.  See my comments above.

Thank you for posting these links.

I am a sufferer of one of these afflictions and have always felt that it was something simple that cascaded into something worse. No, I don't feel that I'm a victim of neuro warfare...I do think that there are toxins we encounter that spiral into disease if the body is compromised.  I might have to look into an appropriate antibiotic protocol (or ?) just to see if symptoms improve.

You're welcome. Everyone in North America now has it, the Mycoplasma pathogen, in their bodies. The only thing that stands in the way of exhibiting the symptoms of these neurosystemic degenerative diseases is one's immune system, or lack thereof.

Antibiotics only works for some people during the short period after the onset appearance of these diseases. Listen to the entire 3-part radio show for the protocol.

There are at least these 4 natural, non-toxic means to improve one's immune system and/or kill the Mycoplasma pathogen:

1. Essiac Tea, the best liver detox ever discovered. A company in Arkansas called Herbal Healer Academy sells them (4 herbs you cook, not the liquid form).
2. Liver-gallbladder flush using Phosfood Liquid and olive oil, cleans out the liver and gallbladder by naturally and safely removing the stones. The liver is THE key organ to help improve one's immune system.
3. Miracle Mineral Supplement or MMS, discovered by Jim Humble, which may kill the Mycoplasma in the blood cells.
4. The Rife Machine, if the manufacturer knows the resonant frequency that kills the Mycoplasma.

try reindeer meat; its free on north pole. If you make it there you'll make it anywhere NY NY! 

Squirrels were Davy Crocket's best friend. Chipmunks to be precise.
