- The USDA pledged to the American public on multiple occasions
that it had increased the testing of slaughtered cows for BSE from 1% to
3% per year. 35 million cattle are slaughtered annually. 3% is 1,050,000
animals. The USDA/FDA now admits it tested only '20,500' cattle last year.
This constitutes a flagrant criminal felony and gross felony public endangerment.
I call upon the President to immediately act by terminating the entire
top level administration of both the USDA and the FDA. I further call upon
the Congress to hold immediate hearings into the policies of lies, betrayal
and deceit of these agencies in terms of its mad cow/BSE policies and programs
which have endangered the lives of countless American citizens.
- Felony criminal indictments must immediately be sought
by the Congress and grand juries throughout the nation against all key
current - and former - federal appointees and employees in these agencies
who have had anything to do with the setting and implementing of government
policy regarding the testing of beef and dairy cattle for mad cow/BSE;
for their failure to adequately enforce of the ban on feeding ruminants
to other ruminates; and for approving the insane policy of the continued
feeding of cattle blood to beef and dairy calves, and pigs and poultry
in the US.
- The British government lied to its citizens about Mad
Cow for years and scores of its people died hideous deaths. And more will
die in the months and years to come. Yet no one...not a single government
official... has been held accountable. If America is to survive, it must
rediscover the term 'accountability', it must put a stop to Federal employee
and government agency lying, and it must begin to hold all government officials,
elected and otherwise, fully responsible for their lies, deceit, incompetence
and misdeeds. Too many Americans have died from CJD already... many more
are dying now. A reasonable estimate of 10% of Alzheimer's deaths are the
result of Mad Cow/CJD. With up to 400,000 new 'Alzheimer's cases' annually,
the sacrificing of Americans on the alter of blood money, - beef blood
money - must end...now.
- If America is to somehow survive as a viable Republic
with a Constitution and a Bill of Rights, it must act NOW to put an end
to anti-human and inhuman dishonesty and corruption by what now passes
for our national government and its agencies.

My Mother was diagnosed
- with Alzheimer's at age 50. She is now 52 and unable
to hold a basic
- conversation. I have always questioned the cause of this
- efforts may help me find the answers.
- From David Brandt
- Jeff - My mom passed away last year from Alzheimer's
and some other problems. I have no idea whether it was really CJD. I am
now a vegan, thanks to you. You scared me, but didn't lie, and I am grateful.
I hope I don't have this time bomb sitting in me; even our kids could have
it - not a future I want, for me or my children. You hit the nail squarely
as to where the blame rests. Here's something I still don't understand.
Wealthy corporations seem not to care if they destroy the planet and everything
on it as long as they profit. What will they do when they have achieved
