Mad Cow Theory: Animals Ate Infected Human Bones

Mad cow - or in need of Bag Balm?
We know that cattle nowadays eat all kinds of stuff that God never intended, but it seems things have gone farther than we thought. Health pros are advancing the theory that mad cow disease (aka BSE) might have originated not with the animals themselves, but with infected human bones from India that were collected, ground up, and sold as cattle feed. The infection would've been Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), the human equivalent of BSE.

Cue the Beatles to sing, "It's all too much for me to take."
