    Default CWD may cross species

    https://oodmag.com/cwd-may-cross-species/

    Study suggests chronic wasting disease (CWD) may be able to cross species from deer, moose, and caribou to humans.

    The study has been around for a long time,now,ever since BSE (mad cow disease) ,Cruetzfeldt-Jakob Disease and Guillain-Barre Syndrome were found in the UK to be linked in human forensic autopsy test results after the Mad Cow epidemic in the late 1980's and early 90's. After all the research showing some similarities ,there's still no concrete correlation with CWD in Deer,Moose,Cariboo and Elk in North America with BSE and little to no published correlation with CWD transferring to humans. The question for hunters is who would be interested in rolling the dice after taking game from known infected areas?

    Another "may" theory. Whatever happened to science.
    Given the amount of time spent over the last 20 years trying to prove this without success, is it not fairly reasonable to believe its NOT true?

    My understanding is that if you don't eat the spinal cord or brain, you should be okay.
    That said, I sure wouldn't knowingly eat meat from an infected deer.

    This guy seems to think prions do not exist and that it could be linked to lack of minerals .
    Says it's comparable to altimeters, dementia ,ms ect .....also says it's not contagious and they are not spreading it.

    I don't know much on this subject I have called it a virus I think 2 times in the past and been corrected. . You would think after 60 years of testing they would know a little more than they do lol.


    What are your thoughts on this video?

    Here’s link to an interesting article from North American Whitetail Magazine written by Dr. James Kroll where he compares the threat of EHD and CWD. He postulates that the risk of CWD to humans is very low and that there is no evidence to suggest that CWD will decimate deer populations.
    http://https://www.northamericanwhit...eadlier/496084

    Some quotes from the article:
    - “[COLOR=#2C2E32]Deer are just one of a number of species, including human, that have TSE diseases! The best-known ones are Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) in man, Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (“mad cow disease” or BSE) in cows, Scrapie in sheep, Transmissible Mink Encephalopathy, Feline Spongiform Encephalopathy, Ungulate Spongiform Encephalopathy and Chronic Wasting Disease.[COLOR=#2C2E32]These are just the ones we know about at this time; and there are probably many more. They all have one thing in common: they are all rare in occurrence and mortality! For example, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans has a worldwide age adjusted death rate of one per 1.25 million per year!”

    - “After 20 years, there has been no scientific evidence CWD has significantly affected reproduction or survival of Wisconsin whitetail herds.”

    - “Therefore, killing thousands of deer will do nothing to eradicate CWD! Now, CWD certainly should never be taken lightly. I am not saying that; however, in 2002, I stuck my neck out and made a calculated statement that, unless you can answer “yes” to the following questions, CWD will remain off or low on the list of top whitetail mortality agents: 1. Will it devastate deer herds? 2. Can humans catch the disease?

    [COLOR=#2C2E32]After the 20-plus years since I made that statement, there has been no credible scientific evidence that the answer to either question is yes. Yet, is it “possible” someday a human may contract the disease? Sure, anything is possible, but Scrapie has been known to infect sheep for at least 250 years, with about 30 percent susceptible to Scrapie. Yet not a single human has ever contracted either Scrapie or a derivative of it by contact or eating sheep. Furthermore, published science supports a human barrier to CWD prion transmission.
    [COLOR=#2C2E32]Regarding negative effects of CWD on deer herds, there has not been a single peer-reviewed study to date reporting CWD had a negative effect on fecundity (fertility) or recruitment of whitetails. In fact, the Wisconsin DNR’s own data clearly show that, within the CWD Zone, fawn crops range 80-100 percent.”
