Not 'fit to print': scientific research shows a prion-alzheimer's connection. Prions, in meat fed protein-by-products, can be avoided by eating no meat, or vegetarian-fed meat. Meanwhile we're inundated w/ scare 'science news', tests, drugs 'science' re: alzheimer disease - causes unknown, and only diagnosable by autopsy
Archives show the US government was aware of the prion-meat-CJD connection since 2001

The plan incorporates a comprehensive approach to further strengthen surveillance, increase research resources, and expand existing inspection efforts to prevent BSE and TSEs from entering or taking hold in the United States. BSE (bovine spongioform encephalopathy) is a fatal disease that causes progressive neurological degeneration in cattle. It is one of a family of diseases called TSEs, or transmissible spongioform encephalopathies, named for sponge-like gaps that develop in the brain tissue of diseased animals or people. One TSE disease that affects humans is Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), a form of this disease, variant CJD (vCJD), is probably related to BSE cattle disease.There is strong scientific evidence the agent that causes BSE in cattle is the agent that causes vCJD in people....
