    Another case of a Wild Game Farm finding CWD...

    A third case of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in 2019 has been confirmed at a Canadian deer farm, and advocates fear servings of infected meat may have once again entered the country's food supply.

    All the cases of CWD, a fatal nervous system disease related to mad cow disease that infects deer, elk, moose and caribou, have been located in Alberta.

    The latest case was confirmed on July 26 at a white-tailed deer farm, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

    Animals that test negative or are under a year old from a CWD-infected herd can be sold for food in Canada — but the CFIA's website states a negative test doesn't guarantee an animal isn't infected.

    Lanteigne and more than 30 doctors, researchers and advocates signed a letter in June asking federal ministers to take urgent action to limit the spread of what they describe as an epidemic.

    This can happen if you eat nerve tissue (the brain and spinal cord) of cattle that were infected with mad cow disease. ... There is no evidence that people can get mad cow disease or vCJD from eating muscle meat—which is used for ground beef, roasts, and steaks—or from consuming milk or milk products.” ??????????????????????????????

    Now you know why the fast food industry are making An effort to push them.

    That's an interesting concept. Maybe,the fast food industry can read the writing on the wall and are ahead of the curve.

    There is now African Swine Fever( not Swine Flu) to think about.

    China's Hog farms are being destroyed by it. Almost sweet in a way.

    China tells Canada that it will not import any soy for Animal feed and other food products. 50+% of hogs in China become infected with African Swine Fever, and their whole Domestic production may be wiped out by next year. That would leave them 100% depended on FOREIGN supplies of pork from years to about a decade. African Swine contamination can survive in the soil for three years or more.

    I don't feel any pity for them.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.
