Re: mad cow/now basic question

Sorry to take so long getting back to you Jim. Been beyond over whelmed with
school and work. It's simple people eat cattle that have been fed renderings
from animals and get the disease. People also use bone meal from the same
cattle and may get the disease. If they didn't feed cattle  who are
herbivores the by products of other animals ( many who are apparently sick)
the disease wouldn't be a problem. Originally it was a disease of cannibals.
That says a lot right there.
