Mad Cow Disease
Posted on December 20, 2010
In the early 1990′s, the news outlets were drowning with the infectious fright of the Mad Cow Disease. Although the outbreak took the appearance of a disease for the ages, it was fortunately an exaggeration.
In reality, the disease is extremely rare in humans. Actually, there have only been a few reported cases of the disease in humans.
The disease itself, is caused by prions located within the cattle. If the cattle had contracted a virus, the proteins within the cow’s body may turn into prions. The spread of this virus will occur when a farmer feeds a cow animal products from an infected animal. Now, once the cattle is slaughtered for consumption, the prions remain. In turn, these prions enter our body, resulting in an internal virus.
Unfortunately it takes anywhere from two to eight years to show any signs of the actual disease. The prions or Mad Cow disease can cause sponge like holes within the central nervous system, or even the brain. Although these symptoms sound horrifying, it rarely ever gets to that level. The initial symptoms include insomnia, anxiety, and depression mixed with the average cold symptoms.
While there is no cure for the disease, there are Mad Cow disease treatments which can suppress and subside the actual symptoms.
