Nothing new to me but I think it is about time the government introduced mass screening to stop the spread of vCJD, the only blood test available is at the National Prion Clinic in London developed by Prof.John Collinge.

If you want to know more about this manmade disease (vCJD) I can thoroughly recommend this book which is currently a top seller on Amazon 'Who Killed my Son' by Christine Lord.
