The Scare Campaign Continues

The Sierra Club has joined the Mad Cow scare campaign with an irresponsible article in their magazine Sierra linking “mad deer disease” to the possible spread of Mad Cow disease throughout the United States. In it they cite anti-technology fear monger John Stauber (author of “Mad Cow USA”) who warns, “the eventual spread of chronic wasting disease across North America seems inevitable.” Yet, just today, United Press International reported that according to experts in the field “people in the United States who eat meat do not have to worry” about Mad Cow disease. Guess which story will affect public opinion most. (Sierra, Jan. 1, 2001, “Now, Mad Deer”) (UPI, Dec. 27, “Mad Cow Not Likely to Spread in U.S.”)
