In 2007 my beloved son Andrew died from vJCD aged just 24. Since then I have created a campaign to find out how and why he died and who is to blame for this terrible disease. This is my blog containing much of the material I have collated and the history of the campaign.

Today the Science ant Technology Committee published its report After the Storm? UK Blood safety and the risk of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. I gave oral and written evidence and all committee members read my book Who killed my son?
The report is scathing and highly critical of the UK governments ‘casual’ attitude towards vCJD and public health and safety. They have made many strident recommendations but this is only useful if David Cameron and his government take note and act. Delay, block, intimidate, dis-respect has been the theme surrounding all aspects of vCJD/BSE.
I welcome this robust report from the committee members, lets hope that action now takes place to prevent further deaths of Human BSE via contaminated blood/ cells/ tissues/ medical instruments.
Below is the link, my evidence has been published throughout some of the main points of the report are:

Cattle diagnosed with BSE in Germany, Romania and Greece and a USA resident dying of vcjd the human form of mad cow disease in a Houston Hospital May 15th 2014; highlights how this deadly disease continues to kill, main and destroy animals and humans.
Though the report below discusses one case of BSE in Romania, cattle like humans can be symptom free but still deadly infectious. How many other cattle in Romania infected with mad cow disease have already entered the human food chain and been consumed? One cow can make literally hundreds of meat products and of course bovine material can be used to produce hundreds of vaccines for humans.
Meanwhile the media continues to report on hundreds of patients who have been told they are at risk of developing cjd due to contaminated blood/surgical instruments.
This blog could run into pages and pages of the rising toll of mad cow disease in both animals and human population. Yet authorities in the UK and globally continue to push their heads in the sand hoping that this modern day man made plague will simply go away, when the list of victims and those disabled by vCJD continues to grow.
With this blog is a photo of me at Pitsham Farm West Sussex where the first officially diagnosed cow with BSE was reported in December 1984, but not publicly announced for many years.
The same UK departments who lied and hid the truth about the Ptisham Farm cattle dying of BSE are currently investigating the Romanian BSE case.
I remain concerned about how much transparency and honesty there is in the reporting of BSE in cattle and human vcjd, as the conflict of interest shown by various governments and their alliances with the meat industry often means human and animal health is a poor second to commerce and making profits for large corporations. A conspiracy that goes to the very top of the British Establishment continues to pressure scientists and medics into under reporting cases of BSE and vcjd in humans, and of course any victim’s of vcjd from consuming BSE infected material from Romania, Greece or Germany will not become ill for many years.
Below is the latest report about cattle in Romanian with BSE
Suspected mad cow disease found in Romanian bee

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — A case of suspected mad cow disease has been found in Romanian beef, officials said Wednesday.
Romania’s animal health and safety authority said a preliminary test on May 1 indicated that a cow slaughtered at an authorized abattoir was infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE.
It said the carcass has been sent to a British laboratory for further tests and it could be an “atypical form of BSE which appears naturally and spontaneously in cattle.”
The officials only revealed the case after Russia decided to ban imports of Romanian beef, citing fears of BSE. It wasn’t clear how the Russians learned about it.
They said Romania has not had a case of BSE since 1995 when testing began and there was no risk to public health from the current “isolated case.”
BSE is fatal to cows and can cause a fatal brain disease in people who eat tainted beef. It first broke out in the late 1980s in Britain, where hundreds of people fell ill and many died after eating contaminated meat. Over the years, 4.5 million cattle were slaughtered to contain the spread.
Outbreaks followed in Japan in 2001 and Canada in May 2003.
Romania exports up to one million cattle a year, mainly to the Netherlands, Italy, and Croatia.

Germany has identified a 10 year old cow with BSE. What is extremely worrying is that the cow showed no symptoms of the disease but as it was tested before slaughter was found to be infected with mad cow disease.
Cows this age are automatically tested for BSE but younger cattle are not, so just how many BSE infected cattle are still entering the human food and medicine chain globally? Cattle showing no symptoms but infected with lethal mad cow disease?
Before BSE there was no such thing as older cattle spontaneously developing BSE as it didn’t officially exist before the mad cow disease epidemic that infected at least a million UK cattle and which was exported globally, via our animals, food and medicines.

university graduate who was killed by vcjd aged just 22 years old.

There has been a recent official confirmed case of vcjd the human form of mad cow disease, in Texas USA posted by the Center of Disease Control.(see link and snip below)
The human form of Mad Cow Disease will continue to kill, maim and destroy families until we have greater transparency regarding the origins and enablers of this UK man made manufactured disease which has been exported worldwide via food, medicines, and animals. This latest victim apparently spent time in Europe and the Middle East and the suggestion from the US government is this is where the latest US victim of vcjd contracted Human BSE.
My thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends, I am so sorry for their loss.
A few years ago a young woman called Linda from Texas aged 39 with six children died of what her doctor diagnosed as Human BSE. Linda slaughtered cattle for over ten years in a Texas factory called Tyson which produces beef products that are eaten across America. I believe Linda and the latest victim from Texas are connected and there is/may be a common regional environmental factor involved.
Linda lived and worked in the USA all her life, the American authorities overturned local experts diagnosis of Human BSE, claiming that Linda had died of sporadic CJD aged 39.
Linda’s family are not convinced and continue to fight for the truth regarding Linda’s untimely death which mirrored all the symptoms and signs of vCJD. I have communicated at length with Linda’s family, friends and medics in the area. There appears to have been a cover-up, Linda’s family and young children have been treated with a great deal of disdain by officials mirroring the intimidation that families affected by vCJD here in the UK receive when they dare to challenge under-reporting of cases of Human BSE.
