STUDY SUGGESTS that We have More Deaths From Mad Cow Disease COMING!
400 a year die of it in USA annually. The PRION is real SLOW TO GESTATE
when in the hospital BLOOD SUPPLY, of course IN MEAT SUPPLY it takes
a few years til calf matures, BUT worst of all, it is IN THE MOMMY SUPPLY!
These experts praised the rigorous work the authors of the report did to confirm that kuru, a disease that once decimated highland tribes in New Guinea, can incubate for 50 years in a few genetically protected people. But the experts said they thought that the findings did not prove that there would be future waves of deaths among people who ate beef from prion-infected cows in the 1980's.
"That's a provocative conclusion, but I'm not sure it's totally plausible," said Dr. David Westaway, a prion expert at the University of Toronto. CNN tells us 400 people die a year of it in USA.
184,000 people in Britain, have died of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, which humans get from cows that had bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad cow disease. (as of 2014).
The authors chronicled the deaths and genetic makeup of 11 aging members of the Fore tribe who died from 1996 to 2004 of kuru, which can lie dormant for years but then start a quick, irreversible descent into dementia and death.
Kuru killed thousands of Fore beginning in the 1920's and only began to fade after the Australian authorities in the 1950's outlawed the Fore practice of honoring their dead by butchering them with bamboo knives at mortuary feasts, eating them and — by some accounts — smearing themselves with brain tissue, which would drive infection into cuts and scratches.
Scientists studying kuru eventually realized that it was transmitted when misfolded prion proteins reached another brain and "taught" its proteins to misfold and congeal into a spongy mass.
The new Lancet study relied on teams of local people who visited mountain villages for years, interviewing and asking for blood samples from anyone with symptoms. The 11 they found were all born between 1933 and 1949, and cannibalism died out by 1960.
The lead author, Dr. John Collinge of University College, London, concluded that kuru could incubate as long as 56 years before killing. It has been known for years that people with a certain genetic marker die soonest of prion diseases. Nine of the 11 Fore did not have it.
For that reason, Dr. Collinge predicted more waves of deaths among people who ate prion-infected beef decades ago, because most of the world also lacks that genetic marker.
"Recent estimates of the size of the vCJD epidemic based on uniform genetic susceptibility could be substantial underestimations," he wrote, using an abbreviation for variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
But several experts — Dr. Westaway; Dr. Richard T. Johnson, a John Hopkins University microbiologist; Dr. Robert Klitzman, a Columbia University psychiatrist who wrote a book about kuru' and Dr. Eugene O. Major, acting director of basic neuroscience at the National Institutes of Health — all said in interviews that they disagreed that there would be huge numbers of future cases.
Because kuru is a human disease, it is better at infecting humans than cow disease is, they argued, and Fore cannibals ate brain matter or got it into skin cuts, while most people eat meat, which has low concentrations of prions.
Guesses as to how many people will eventually die of mad cow disease have varied wildly. In 2001, two groups of eminent British scientists argued over whether it would kill 136,000 Britons or only a few thousand. Recently some scientists have predicted that it will die out in a decade, while others have argued that it is still incubating in many people and will be transmitted by blood transfusions. Or by gestation to children!
No one expects no more deaths, Dr. Major said, but to any suggestion that the 160 known now are merely the tip of an iceberg, he said, "I think this iceberg is in a very shallow pond."
Told of their skepticism, Dr. Collinge said he was not predicting any specific number of deaths, but did not believe that the disease was disappearing. Britons ate a lot of brain and spinal cord in "recovered meat" in the 1980's, he said "and there are five or six other genes which collectively might delay the incubation period, and we don't know which they are yet."
Dr. Johnson said he worked in New Guinea in 1964, shortly after cannibalism had ended but while kuru — still a scientific mystery — was still killing 80 percent of the women in some villages while men were being ritually executed as witches to even out the populations.
In the world of prions, he said, "every time you try to draw an obvious conclusion, you can be sure of only one thing: be ready for surprises." By DONALD G. McNEIL Jr.
The big surprise to be ready for is this: Western science is claiming all those adult humans degenerating into madness are ALZHEIMERS, a genetic susceptibility-disease which is resident in .000003% of the population and couldn't grow incrementally, ever. Yet it seems to have done that. Genetic suceptibilities do not GROW incrementally. They stay at the same statistical level. So the only other answer is, it is really MADCOW, a tsunami of madcow in beef eaters sweeping over the planet. And having seen space ships on many occasions, and knowing the laser-cuts on huge beef cows done in South West were impossible for humans...what do they call that? Cattle mutilations? Means aliens are 'running' this disease. They want the planet but not us on it. They are vacating the building to take it over as an ALIEN Condo.
