How to fight with “ mad cow disease “? Opening of veterinarians of Scotland ofthe Most probable cause of preservation of the centers “ mad cow disease “ after 1996 when the ban on use of bone meal of an animal origin for sagination was imposed, dirty fodder capacities are. So now veterinarians of Scotland consider.
Such unusual on the treatment and as it is represented, the plausible explanation of survivability of a deadly disease was offered by the Scottish newspaper “ Skotsmen “.
Naturally, the edition proves this assumption by opinion of scientists and experts in the field of veterinary science. So it is not a joke from the category of black humour at all.
Everything put the fact that the real reason of emergence “ mad cow disease “ nobody knows. It is known only that priona - shapeless proteinaceous educations are guilty of everything.
In 1996 the ban on use of bone meal for sagination of ruminant was imposed. The quantity of diseases decreased, but did not disappear completely. The most unclear is that young calfs at whom find infecting agents are born. But forages from bone meal do not apply any more. Means, something else not so.
The chief veterinarian of Scotland Charles Milnes told the newspaper that in England, on Hugo - the West and in the central part, in 9 places 20 cases of appearance of the infected cows after a ban of 1996 are registered.
Investigation showed that a possible source of infection - the particles of actually sick fabric remaining in capacities in which an animal transport forages. These capacities are not washed plainly for years.
As the scientist noted, experience was shown that it is enough one milligram of fabric of the infected brain substance to infect a calf. At careful investigation it became clear that in farms where there was infection of young growth, forages stored in capacities which began to use till August, 1996 (ban time). Capacities are used many years, and never cleaned them. It words of the veterinarian.
A few years ago young growth infection in Wales could be also quite caused by sterns which were stored in old capacities.
Milnes considers that the risk of infection with the sterns made before introduction of a ban remains very insignificant. However scientists strongly recommend farmers constantly and to carefully wash capacities, especially those which began to be used till 1996 and which did not clean since then.
But there is also good news: the risk of infection of the person after introduction of a ban is insignificant. To food there are only those parts of animals who cannot just have the infected particles. It is muscular tissue. The brain and some types of an offal do not get to food of the person any more.
Naturally, veterinarians and scientists would like to win against an illness completely. To be fair it is necessary to specify what to veterinarians is what to be proud.
At the beginning of 90 - x years when the distribution peak " was noted; mad cow disease “ in a year 200 thousand cows caught. After a ban of 1996 of such cases was only 200 for all past tense. And in Scotland among calfs, been born after 1996, infected “ mad cow disease “ is not present at all.
