MAD cow disease - also known as Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) - ravaged Britain's cattle herds in the 1990s when millions of livestock were slaughtered. The killer disease spread to humans from infected beef, sparking widespread panic. And a new outbreak in Scotland shows it has not been eradicated. What is mad cow disease and what does BSE stand for? Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is a fatal degenerative brain disease in cattle, similar to scrapie in sheep. It attacks the central nervous system - the brain and spinal cord - causing infected animals to lose muscle control. They become unsteady on their feet and also become aggressive, nervous or frenzied - leading to the name "mad cow disease". The exact cause is unknown but it is believed to be spread by prions, abnormally folded proteins which accumulate in the brain and kill nerve cells. There was a major outbreak in the UK beginning in the late 1980s. Ministers banned the practice of feeding cattle with bonemeal … [Read more...] about What is Mad Cow Disease, what does BSE stand for and are outbreaks of it dangerous to humans?
World A neurological disorder that impacts cattle was found in a cow at a farm in Scotland. Mad Cow disease, otherwise known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy, rapidly spreads and damages the central nervous system of the infected cows and kills them, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The disease causes erratic behavior among cows that are infected as it breaks down the tissues in their brains. The case found in Scotland was isolated, the BBC reported. It occurred on a farm near the Huntly area and after the case was discovered a movement ban was placed on the herd at the farm. The disease was found in an animal after it was dead but before it was turned into food or came in contact with other food for consumption, the BBC reported. There is still an investigation into where the disease could have originated. This case is one of less than 20 found in the United Kingdom since 2011. Tests are done regularly to check animals for the disease that can spread … [Read more...] about What Is Mad Cow Disease? Cow in Scotland Discovered With Illness

The cult of General James “Mad Dog-Chaos-Warrior Monk” Mattis is strong.And his PR team is even stronger.After a statement issued by the secretary of defense regarding the implementation of Trump’s transgender military service ban, mainstream media outlets went into full-on adulatory mode and breathlessly repeated a factually-deficient claim that Mattis was somehow freezing or putting the ban on hold while the Pentagon twiddled its thumbs to conduct a study.Except that’s not even close to what happened. Like, at all. Rather, Mattis is loyally following Trump’s executive order exactly as written.Readers may recall that Trump telegraphed his intent to ban transgender service members via a series of Adderall-fueled tweets in late July. The Pentagon doesn’t directly answer to Trump’s Twitter account, however, and the Tweeter-in-Chief was forced to have some eager transphobic subordinate draft up an actual executive order.That anti-transgender … [Read more...] about Sorry Mad Dog Cultists, Mattis Did Not Freeze Trump’s Transgender Military Ban
