Infective process may cross species

About the author: 

I was troubled by the article about BSE

I was troubled by the article about BSE. Even if BSE is not a "disease" because it isn't viral or bacterial, and even if it is most likely passed on from animals subjected to organophosphate poisoning and by feeding their carcasses to other animals, there is still no room for complacency when some sort of infective "process" is set in place, even if one can't call it a disease.

According to Professor Richard Lacey, author of The Poison on Your Plate, this process crosses species barriers, survives heat and can perhaps travel vertically from mother to offspring.

Although Lacey doesn't say so, it can't yet be ruled out that milk may be infective, too. Elizabeth Russell, London.........
