Government To Reduce Mad Cow Testing - CBS News

Government To Reduce Mad Cow Testing - CBS News:
(AP) Despite the confirmation of a third case of mad cow disease, the government intends to scale back testing for the brain-wasting disorder blamed for the deaths of more than 150 people in Europe.

The Agriculture Department boosted its surveillance after finding the first case of mad cow disease in the United States in 2003. About 1,000 tests are run daily, up from about 55 daily in 2003.

The testing program detected an infected cow in Alabama last week, and further analysis confirmed Monday that the animal had mad cow disease.
Just another example of Upside Down World priorities by BushCo. The can't expect us to complain once our brains turn to mush.
