Projections based on what?  There are still less than 30 cases of
new variant CJD in the UK.  Robert A. LaBudde, PhD, has analyzed
the first 21 confirmed cases and found that the incidence rate is
constant at 6.7 cases per year [95% confidence interval 6-3-6.9],
with no evidence that this rate is increasing.

Now that the existence of a risk to humans has been established,
the FDA has banned the use of any mammalian protein (with a few
specific exceptions) in the manufacture of animal feed given to
cattle, sheep or goats.

There is also an extensive surveillance program here in the U.S.
Any potential "mad cow" (i.e. one that behaves abnormally, falls
down or whatever, when it is taken for slaughter, is first tested
for rabies, and then its brain is examined at one of 60
veterinary diagnostic laboratories around the country.  Some 3000
brains of cattle showing potential neurological signs have been
examined so far, and no evidence of BSE has been detected.

I think this is moving too far into the unsupportable "conspiracy
theory" area.  And AIDS is unrelated to BSE.  It is not a

For those interested, there are several websites.  There is also
a mailing list for BSE, which like UFO Updates is archived on the
