Wrong. Nobody has contracted CJD from a BSE affected cow. Three British
farmers have developed CJD in the last three years. These are clinically
indistinguishable from sporadic CJD and not an acquired disease. The numbers
of farmers affected is no more than would be expected by chance given the
worldwide UK frequency of disease and the number of farmers. The incidence
amongst UK farmers is identical to that in other European conutries where
there is no BSE.

There is no relation between CJD/BSE and the use of BST. You are confusing
your issues here.
