CJD/Mad Cow Deaths Not
Reportable In 28 States

From Patricia Doyle, PhD
This is amazing. Here is a list of States where CJD is reportable/not reportable. How do we get accurate numbers of cases when 28 States, including large states like California, are not obligated to report the diagnosis? I am amazed. I thought that it was reportable for all States.
It is not reportable in Oregon or even District of Columbia.
If time permits, I would like to go over this list. The fact that 28 states are not required to report the diagnosis, makes a big difference in CJD stats and numbers of US cases. The families of victims, understandably, would not want the doctor to publicize the diagnosis of CJD and many cases in these 28 states go unreported. This totally skews the stats. We therefore have a probable loss in the 28 states, as well as many cases misdiagnosed as Alzheimer Disease. My guess is that CJD is not the rare disease the CDC would have us believe it is.
