Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post
BSE is a great topic of conversation, albeit it a bit outside the EU debate. Thing is, it seems to have such a huge reputation, like its some massive killer and never-again scandal.

since it was discovered at the last count looks like 177 people have died from vCJD. 177 over 26 years. so about 7 people a year. 13 people die on average in fishing accidents each year.

this is not to say the above comment isnt right about imported meat etc etc and I dont mean anything against your comment k_and_e. I just tend to chuckle at the mass panic that can still come across some people's faces at the mention of british beef and bse. mud sticks as they say.
Second wave could be on its way:

30000 may have human form of mad cow disease
Many more people could still die from mad cow disease in the UK
