Human Mad Cow disease (CJD)

Postby TJrandom » Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:38 am

The human form of mad cow disease (CJD) - Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease can be detected in the skin. This method of detection may contribute to earlier diagnosis, but having the prions in the skin may also lead to disease transmission.

Gord - don't use surgical instruments for dining on human body parts, and you should be safe.

TJ - avoid using surgical instruments when shaking hands and ditto.

Just eat your friends' skins - then you're safe.
