Default Chronic Wasting Disease and Mad Cow Disease

Chronic Wasting Disease and Mad Cow Disease in Cattle and Deer and Elk and ALS Lou Gehrig Disease in Humans have lots in common it appears to me.

I'm going to look into this more.

I'm sure science is looking at this.

Am I ringing any bells.

No bells. Mad Cow is a prion disease, caused by small infectious particles. ALS does not appear to be related to prions. ALS probably has more to do with gene mutations, though itís possible that infections, trauma, or chemical exposures may trigger it, particularly in people with genetic susceptibility.

An example of a prion disease in humans is Creutzfeldt Jacob Disease, which causes rapid onset of dementia and myoclonus (large muscle jerking movements, like seizures). Brain specimens on autopsy have the appearance of holes punched out in the brain (like Swiss cheese). EEG tests of the brain shows distinctive abnormalities.

Iím unaware of any connection between polio vaccine and ALS, if thatís what youíre asking.

There are rare reports of people getting a flaccid (low muscle tone) paralysis following polio vaccine. For oral polio vaccine, that amounts to one case in 2.5 million vaccine recipients (I looked it up), and mostly in people who have a specific type of immunodeficiency related to B cells. Again, this has nothing to do with ALS.

Where are you going with this inquiry?
