Here is a PM I sent to TAM - I had to share this with the rest of you as it sort of P O'd me somewhat and folks, I do not post this to slight TAM in any way but I do certainly post it to show the level of ignorance that is out there regarding politically sponsered statements and how many people actually are sucked in by them.
SRM removal doesn't make beef or anything else safer!! The rogue prions are found throughout the animal and are present in blood, meat, sinue, brain, liver, lungs - throughout the entire body of the infected animal period! We detect prions in urine with our test and in order for it to be found in urine, it has to be borne throughout the cardiovascular system (blood0 and thusly, the prions travel throughout the entire body and sure, they do concentrate in the brain, the spinal cord, the yes and lymphatic system, but that does not mean they are not present throughout the entire animal. So please, do some research before you fall victim to the standard lies that most governments put out to appease the masses. In science, we do not have the luxury of being able to discount everything to suit a political effort.
Sorry but I tend to take the word of the OIE expert Scientists over the word of someone that has a vested interest in selling a test that no Government has yet to approve for detection of BSE. The OIE recommendation to Canada and the US state.
the Implementation of an SRM ban is the MOST critical and Valuable central measure for public health protection and food safety and is fully endorsed by the review team. An SRM ban would also reduce the risk of infectivity in animal feed. until you have the OIE experts believeing in your theory don't bother PMing me again.
