2 Mule Deer Test Positive For Chronic Wasting Disease
---------------------------------------------------
2 mule deer captured in the Organ Mountains as part of an ongoing
research project near White Sands Missile Range have tested positive
for chronic wasting disease (CWD), a fatal neurological disease that
attacks the brains of infected deer and elk, the Department of Game
and Fish announced.

The number of confirmed CWD cases in New Mexico now stands at 11
since 2002, when the disease was first confirmed in a deer found near
the eastern foothills of the Organ Mountains. All 11 CWD-infected
deer were found in the same general area of southern New Mexico. The
origin of the disease in New Mexico remains unknown. The carcasses of
the infected deer will be incinerated, said Kerry Mower, the
Department's lead wildlife disease biologist.

Mower said the most recent CWD-positive deer showed no obvious
physical signs of having the disease. They were captured in April
2005 and tested as part of a 3-year-old research project studying
deer population dynamics in southern New Mexico. More than 140 deer
have been captured alive and tested for the study, in which
researchers hope to find the cause of a 10-year decline in the area
deer population. Study participants include the Department of Game
and Fish, the U.S. Army at White Sands Missile Range and Fort Bliss,
Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Geological Survey at New Mexico State
University, and San Andres National Wildlife Refuge.

Hunters can assist the Department in its CWD research and prevention
efforts by bringing their fresh, legally harvested deer or elk head
to an area office, where officers will remove the brain stem for
testing. Participants will be eligible for drawings for an oryx hunt
on White Sands Missile Range and a trophy elk hunt on the Valle
Vidal. For more information about the drawing and chronic wasting
disease, visit the Department web site at

Check into Purdey's theories, some of the cases he investigated happened around missle or bomb dumps too. Heck, I wonder if that's why Europe has had more cases? Where was the war fought?

Japan, damn, they had bombs fall on them too?

Montgomery, Al
1944 A Manhattan Project memorandum of 29 April 1944 states: "Clinical evidence suggests that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect... It seems most likely that the F [code for fluoride] component rather than the T [code for uranium] is the causative factor." The memo, from a captain in the medical corps, is stamped SECRET and is addressed to Colonel Stafford Warren, head of the Manhattan Project's Medical Section. Colonel Warren is asked to approve a program of animal research on CNS effects. "Since work with these compounds is essential, it will be necessary to know in advance what mental effects may occur after exposure... This is important not only to protect a given individual, but also to prevent a confused workman from injuring others by improperly performing his duties. The author of the 1944 CNS research proposal attached to the 29 April memo was Dr Harold C. Hodge-at the time, chief of fluoride toxicology studies for the University of Rochester division of the Manhattan Project.

Didn't think so, so I posted your response on the coffee shop, maybe I should also post it here!
