Recent studies have shown that Mad Cow Disease didn’t start from feeding dead cows to cows.
In India, they make what is called Scrapple (not to be confused with the breakfast “meat” in the Philadelphia area) to ship out and feed to cows. To do this, they grind up grains with other various things… including human bodies pulled from rivers.
That’s right, folks, what was originally a human-carried disease (thought to be spread by cannibalism), has actually been passed from people to cows, and back to people; not from people to cows as originally thought.
I love my Medicine in America class. Our instructor has lunch with head honchos in this country’s Medicinal Sociology field, and that’s where she learned this, and passed it on to us.
And because I can’t resist: Scrapple is made of people!
