What country is mad cow disease from?
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) was first identified in the United Kingdoms (UK). It has since spread to multiple countries throughout Europe.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) was first discovered in the United Kingdom in the early 1980s.
No. There is no cure for Mad Cow Disease.
Mad cow disease IS a disease and NOT a virus. It is caused by PRIONS.
People do not get Mad Cow Disease. No human can get mad cow disease but humans can be infected by eating meat from a contaminated cow that has mad cow disease. The disease in people that has been associated with humans is called variant Creutzfeldt Jakob disease (vCJD) that is also a progressive fatal neurological disease.
No. Lyme disease and Mad Cow are two very different diseases. Lyme disease is caused by ticks, and mad cow is caused by a prion.
Yes. Prions can cause Mad Cow Disease.
We are aware of mad cow disease
If you mean what it is short for, nothing, mad cow disease is a nickname. The real name of mad cow disease is Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE).
There is no cure for this disease. Only way to "cure" mad cow disease is to die.
No. "Mad Cow Disease" is a prion, or misfolded protein, not a parasite.
Mad cow disease is caused by a prion, which is a misfolded protein. It is not alive, but it replicates. Because it is not alive you can not kill it by cooking the infected item. Cows usually contract mad cow disease by being fed the remains of cows that had mad cow disease.
You have a 1:1 000 000 chance of contracting "mad cow disease" or CJD (Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, the human form of "Mad Cow disease.") Your chances increase as you get into your 50's and 60's.
There is no such thing as "cow disease" unless you are referring to MAD cow disease, which is something else entirely.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy...otherwise known as BSE or mad cow disease.
"Mad Cow Disease" is the term specifically referring to the brain degenerative disease of cattle. Humans get a form of "mad cow" called Crueztfeldt-Jakob Disease. Sheep and goats get Scrapie, and deer and elk get Chronic Wasting Disease.
At one time, cattle were fed the unwanted parts of ground up sheep. Some of those cows became infected with mad cow disease. Mad cow disease spread to humans. Cattle were also fed parts of ground up cow parts, cows eating ground up cattle were infected with that disease. The breakthrough came in New Guinea. There, women and children would eat the brains of dead people. Men would not. Women and children would catch a… Read More
The scientific name for mad cow disease is bovine spongiform encephalopathy, abbreviated BSE.
100 % of all humans that receive mad cow disease die from it. Same with cows.
Mad cow disease cannot be treated. The only solution is eradication to prevent the spread of the disease.
BSE-Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. Mad cow disease CJD-Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. Human version of mad cow disease
It's not sad cow disease, it's MAD cow disease. Its a brain disease that can cause irrational behavior in cows.
Yes, that is precisely how you contract mad cow.
Mad Cow Disease is a layman's term for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy.
Mad Cow disease isn't contagious, because it can't be spread easily by physical contact. It is however infectious, meaning it can be given from one individual to another. People can contract it if they eat the neural tissue (brain and spinal cord) of an infected cow. Other cows catch mad cow disease the same way. You can't catch mad cow disease by touching an infected cow or it sneezing/bleeding etc. on you.
Mad Cow Disease is also known as Creutzfeldtâ??Jakob disease. It is believed to be caused by prions that are found in contaminated food. Prions do not have a classification.
People do not get Mad Cow Disease. The disease in people that has been associated with humans is called variant Creutzfeldt Jakob disease (vCJD) that is also a progressive fatal neurological disease.
Because cows go kinda nutty or act really aggressive when they are showing the symptoms of Mad Cow Disease.
No, that is a common misconception. Mad cow disease is only caused by beef that is contaminated with prions from a cow that has BSE or Bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
She had Bright's disease and Mad Cow disease.
It can't. Only a bullet can "treat" Mad cow in animals.
There is no medication for mad cow disease (also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy). Cows which suffer from this disease will die, they cannot be cured.
Mad cow disease happens when the proteins in the brain of cow become misfolded. This is called prion. In simple words all proteins have to be folded before they can function and when some proteins in the brain become misfolded, such a state is called prions (misfolding of proteins) and it results in mad cow disease.
yeh when you had a poo ate it then pooed it back out in a cows mouth which made the cow mad so its madcow disease lols :)
Mad Cow is not a virus or bacterial infection like a cold or flu is that comes about as a seasonal thing. It is caused by a prion, and the chances that humans will contract Mad Cow is extremely low; there is no season that people can "start getting" Mad Cow disease.
Researchers are not completely sure how cows get mad cow disease, but they believe it comes from certain food that was given to cows. Some of this food contains the remains of dead cows that had the infection causing the cows that are eating it to get the infection. Mad cow disease affects the cows brain causing them to go "mad."
Yes, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) was in Europe during the epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s.
The most recent case of mad cow disease in a human was diagnosed in Dec. 2013 in Houston,Tx.
There is no diagnostic for this disease it will always be fatal!
The U.K. (in c.1987), as well as Canada (most notably that lone case in 2003...)
It kills you...
No, but they can get boners.
Yes, in a manner of speaking. Mad Cow Disease is a nickname for a more harder-to-pronounce name of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE). Most believe that Mad Cow Disease also applies to humans, but this is a bit of a problem: humans are not cows. Yes they are capable of getting the variant form of this neurologically degrading disease, but that doesn't automatically entitle them to suddenly turn into a cow that is mad. Seriously, humans… Read More
not very likly because i dont know anybody who has mad cow or had it
No, there is no cure or treatment for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease).
Mad cow disease is an incurable, fatal brain disease that affects cattle and possibly some other animals, such as goats and sheep. The medical name for mad cow disease is bovine spongiform encephalopathy (pronounced: bo-vine spun-jih-form en-seh-fah-la-puh-thee), or BSE for short. It's called mad cow disease because it affects a cow's nervous system, causing a cow to act strangely and lose control of its ability to do normal things, such as walk
I believe that is Mad cow disease that you are asking about.
what about 'mad cow disease ? This can be passed to man from the food chain..
There is Mad Cow Disease and Malaria.
In a matter of speaking, yes. Mis-folded proteins are what cause "Mad Cow Disease," also known as Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy in cattle or Creuztfeldt-Jakobson's Disease in humans.
