Like the rest of Europe, Germany is going through a histrionic BSE scare. So Germans switched to sausage and pork. And then they were told pork contains anabolic steroids. So they switched to venison. And then they were told it might have BSE too. So the Germans, who hate veggies, are starting to "starve." And raid zoos for meat. Hey, where'd all this paté come from?

A fairly good starting page for information about BSE and CJD is the Mad Cow Disease Home Page. Don't let the peculiar name put you off.

Anybody who thinks BSE is a 'new' disease and is restricted
to Europe is probly 10 feet tall , lives in Australia, lays
these HUGE delicious eggs, and has a lot of sand in their
hair .
