What I want you to take away from this article is the (admitted) number of “known” cases: “[a] peak of 37,311 cases in 1992” Remember, this represents the number of recognized and properly diagnosed vCJD that the Government ADMITS to. Remember, John also said:
“…One very disturbing thing I have noticed about your society in general is your blind acceptance of what you are told. Do you really think the news industry doesn’t have an agenda? Do you really think those hamburgers you stuff into your body are safe? Do you really think your government is telling you the truth? What proof do you have of any of that?”
No, we have NO evidence to support that we should trust our government…
I wonder WHEN BSE/vCJD entered the food chain for human consumption?
From Wikipedia: “…Between 460,000 and 482,000 BSE-infected animals had entered the human food chain before controls on high-risk offal were introduced in 1989.”
So, an estimated 1/2 a MILLION infected animals were consumed by humans before 1989. Just for rough numbers, one 1200 lb cow provides approximately 500 lbs of meat. How many people now do you think became infected now? If the average American consumes 200 lbs of meat a year, that’s…..a hell of a lot of infected Americans. Did you get your notice from the USDA that you might be infected? Yeah, neither did I.
Also from Wikipedia:
“…A new case of Mad Cow disease was recently found in a dairy cow on April 23, 2012 in California during a planned Agriculture Department surveillance program…”
This was just YESTERDAY!!
“…It is estimated that 400,000 cattle infected with BSE entered the human food chain in the 1980s.”
So, let me ask you a question: Knowing what you know now, are you still eating red meat? Do you think I am?
