Two Human Victims of Mad Cow Disease

Juan Jose Badiola, director for Spain's National Reference Centre for Transmitted Spongiform Encephalopathy, said there was no cause for alarm since most likely the victims contracted the disease more than eight years ago. The European Union in January 2001 banned the use of animal and bone meal in animal feed in order to prevent the spread of mad cow disease and vCJD.

Exploiting God's animals for profit and taste has brought grave consequences for human health.

These practices however, have come to a high price for humans and animals, reflecting little respect for God's Creation.
