Main Question or Discussion Point

I didn't know it until the U.S. case of mad cow disease appeared. You see what happens when feedlots, etc., result to utilizing Cannibalism? I mean, feeding cattle the ground up remains of their own kind! Ugh. I think I will just eat fruit from now on, the only problem is I can never find an orange or apple that tastes fit to eat. Help!!!

Humans used to get Kuru (similar to Crutzfeldt Jacob Disease, or mad cow disease, or scrapies) in tribes where it was tradition to eat the brains of your diseased family member.
