Second Mad Cow in U.S.

Dr. Mike Heiser has recommended a new book called Brain Trust by Colm Kelleher, which purports to establish a link between mad cow disease and Alzheimer’s. If Kelleher is right, and he’s got the credentials to make his claim plausible, it makes this news especially ominous:

WASHINGTON (AP) – Tests have confirmed mad cow disease in a U.S. cow previously cleared of having the brain wasting illness, the Agriculture Department said Friday. It is the second case of mad cow disease in the United States.

Kelleher’s point is that mad cow has been in our beef supply a lot longer than we thought–and that the government knows it.

If so, the Baby Boom generation, raised on burgers, hot dogs, chili, and tacos, may be in for a tougher retirement than we think.
