Background - we're based in a country where very large vested interests - a) a corrupt bureaucracy; b) agri-chem and animal feed manufacturers; c) largest landowners and farmers; d) fast-food industry; and e) medico-industrial companies - by virtue of being paymasters to and controllers of, venal lying politicians, have been allowed to conspire to secretly force herbivores to be cannibals, to secretly downgrade human food standards for the mass market, and then to keep secret the news of the horrifying consequences of their actions from those who were most at risk.
ENGLISH SENIOR CIVIL SERVANTS, (M.A.F.F. see below) AND POLITICIANS, IN LEAGUE WITH THE FEED PROFITEERS AND THE INDUSTRIAL FARMERS, ACCEPTED THE MANUFACTURE OF CHEAP BUT TOXIC ANIMAL FEED AND KEPT QUIET ABOUT THE RESULTS
THE INDUSTRIAL MEAT-MANUFACTURERS AND BURGER-JOINTS WERE SECRETLY PUTTING BONE-SCRAPINGS & OFFAL INTO MEAT PRODUCTS. MANY SCIENTISTS AND DOCTORS (ALSO SECRETLY), STOPPED THEIR OWN FAMILIES AND FRIENDS EATING "INDUSTRIAL MEAT PRODUCTS" FIVE YEARS OR MORE BEFORE THE PUBLIC WERE TOLD - THE ELITE PROTECTED THEMSELVES AND PROFITED WHILE PUTTING ORDINARY PEOPLE AT DEADLY RISK
See update below and info sites mad-cow.org/ (articles on BSE/vCJD) & www.purefood.org/madcow.htm
(research on BSE/vCJD) and NEW GM revealings
Complacent or corrupt bureaucrats consistently downplayed serious evidence - see latest revealed
Close by, in Europe, commercial and political interests secretly allowed the contamination of medical blood supplies to the general public while making sure their own families and friends were not endangered - again the elite protected themselves and profited while putting ordinary people at deadly risk
ALL THESE ACTIONS WERE TO BE EXPECTED JUST AS SOON AS THEY WERE POSSIBLE - FOR ELITES HAVE A HISTORICAL RECORD OF ABUSE, OF HUMANS, ANIMALS AND THE WHOLE ECOLOGICAL ENVIRONMENT From Altruist Survivor data - Evolution, and Self-examination
BBC Radio 4 News - 29 August 2000
British government scientists stressed that people 'shouldn't be too concerned' about latest reports: that BSE - mad cow disease - can be incubated by various animals without symptoms showing.
The BBC presenter emphasised - as the BBC has done for several years now - that the `species barrier should protect humans'.
[As usual in these cases we informed the BBC, UK Press etc , of our criticism - see what happened below]
UPDATE - 21 Nov 2000. BBC Radio 4 - The British Government 'is advised' not to take any action to protect the British public from toxic French beef (now probably as much infected as British beef was ten or more years ago)
Cynic (or realist) conclusion: The same corrupt officials, advisers and covert lobbyists belonging to M.A.F.F. and its friends, are advising this dereliction of public safety in order to achieve "blame overlap" - to get the initial poisoners off the hook, along with their political friends?
Plan :- If enough British people get vCJD from imported beef products then M.A.F.F., the feed manufacturers and the politicians who allowed toxic feed manufacture, can all claim they are not to blame, as an expected epidemic looms. Note: British victim figures are doubling each year - search for CJD, vCJD ]
UPDATES : - November 2000 - December 2000 - May 2001 - September 2001 - August 2012
Maybe linked? - George Monbiot's evidence - later, `media's fake shock' at recent confirmation
[British government and big commercial pressures have so influenced the BBC in recent years that its News broadcasts are now generally disbelieved by younger and more aware British folk]
And our young `cynics' are right - because the true facts are different.
To quote Jared Diamond - US author of `Guns, Germs and Steel' - "The major killers of humanity throughout our recent history - smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, and cholera - are infectious diseases that evolved from diseases of animals ..."
[`Guns, Germs and Steel' by Jared Diamond - Random House ISBN 0-224-03809-5 (p/bk) ]
Which should tell you something about that "species barrier".
It's not there!
Update on diseases we can get from livestock - zoonotic diseases - knowledge of them is kept low-key - ie. secret.
Many of these diseases seem to be increasing their presence, frequency of occurrence, virulence and / or paths and ease of infection
e.coli - can be fatal, 'Q' fever - can be fatal, all the "influenzas - can be fatal, BSE (mad cow) - always fatal, Foot & Mouth - can be serious
In addition some serious / potentially fatal diseases are especially dangerous for women - causing urinary tract or mammary gland infection and spontaneous abortion
Chlamydia psittaci - Toxoplasma gondii - Coxiella burnetii (Q fever)
Not only can we track the diseases, in the archeological record, from human domestication of various animals, but we can see altered versions being continually renewed from those reservoirs of mutation.
A typical example is of sometimes lethal viruses that annually emerge from crowded pig and poultry farms in the Far East.
Influenza is actually an avian disease. The basic and mutating disease is in wild and domestic fowl.
The reservoir & 'lab' for mutation and onward transmission to humans is kept alive in the huge poultry farms of E. Asia and offshore islands. I.e 'Asian flu' / 'HongKong flu' etc.

If our "experts" had a truly 'expert' knowledge of the history of human and animal disease they would, and should be stressing that the greatest danger of new killer diseases comes from the abuse and crowding together of animals, of any kind
We say - forget government 'experts'
Their so-called independence has been shown to be questionable'
You (and we) now have enough information to know that:-
1) eating the meat of intensively reared & stressed animals is an unquantified risk amplifier
2) living close to or even socializing with people in contact with intensively reared & stressed animals is an unquantified risk amplifier
Later, a hurried correction by the BBC.
Reaction to our comments above?
Thurs. 19 October 2000 BBC Radio Four eco-program: `Costing the Earth'.
The grave-voiced presenter, along with new program 'experts,' now lists our `Perceptions' data - those published (above) in August - as "serious risks".
The facts were presented as if newly discovered by the BBC. There was no acknowledgment (see BBC plagiarism) that they were copied - almost word for word - from `Perceptions' prior publication.
25 Feb Re: "BRITISH 'FOOT & MOUTH DISEASE' OUTBREAK"
Evidence now shows that center of infection:-
a) was 'industrial farming' unit;
b) had already been accused of cruelty to animals, bad husbandry, bad practices;
c) was run for profits above all else;
d) had diseased animals for a long time unreported - (traced to them afterwards).
Lies initially broadcast by English senior civil-servants via the BBC
LIE No.1 - "Foot&Mouth is a deadly and painful disease for animals"
TRUTH - after a week or so F&M has less effect on livestock than a common cold - BUT it might lower the profits of big inter-regional & international livestock traders - ie. favored clients of corrupt English senior civil-servants.
LIE No. 2 - "Foot&Mouth is no danger to humans, due to the species barrier"
TRUTH - humans can, and recently did, contract F&M - with unknown long-term consequences for themselves, their families and the rest of us humans.
FLASHBACK : during the corrupt Thatcher and Major years English senior civil-servants - in league with their rich agro-business friends - conspired to close most small abattoirs and butchers in Britain, using various EU regulations as an excuse (although the same regulations do not close down small abattoirs and butchers in the rest of Europe).
Similarly, the UK's corrupt bureaucrats & politicos funnel poor people's taxes into the pockets of the rich large-landowners, while pretending the subsidies are for the "small farmer" - see 2004 revealings.
So they gave their friends - the English industrial shoddy-meat manufacturers (and maybe the supermarkets) a near-monopoly control.
All this for maximized profit and graft for politicians and senior civil-servants
The foot&mouth epidemic could not be easily isolated; it swamped the country - due to animals being painfully transported huge distances back and forth before slaughter, merely to slightly increase trading profits.

`silent pandemic of brain damage' & `chemical killers'
NOT FORGETTING WE GROW MORE THAN ENOUGH FOOD TO FEED THE WORLD - HOWEVER : PROFITS DEMAND THAT SELECTED PEOPLE MUST STARVE
Stage 1 - For maximum profit, the big estate owners and agri-businesses inflicted maximum suffering on livestock by intensive rearing, unnatural habitats, unnatural feedstuffs
THEY ALSO CREATED IDEAL CONDITIONS FOR DISEASE
Stage2 - For maximum profit the big estate owners and agribusinesses inflicted maximum suffering on livestock by arduous long-distance transportation: to squeeze a few extra pennies of trading profit or subsidy profit.
THEY ALSO CREATED IDEAL CONDITIONS FOR EXTRA-FAST DISEASE TRANSMISSION
Stage 3 - For maximum profit the big estate owners and agribusinesses, when F&M struck, would not permit the sensible, economic course of vaccination. Why? Because their EXPORT profits might suffer. And they knew their profits could be increased still further, at the expense of ordinary people (who alone pay net taxes), by a SLAUGHTER POLICY with huge compensation cost to the public - [from takers & abrowne]
All free profit for the rich landowners and agro-industrialists - who do not pay net taxes - a privilege no ordinary person is ever granted.
IDEAL CONDITIONS FOR REPEATED OUTBREAKS - EASY PROFIT IS IRRESISTIBLE TO THE RUTHLESS AND THE GREEDY
"Is the only challenge in the world to be greed and viciousness?
Is the only satisfying power the power of the ascent over men, the only dream, ambition?
And must the alternative to greed, evil, ambition - be only sluggishness?"
