Jeff Rense's web site has been a strong source of Mad Cow and prion information now for more than two years. He is an outspoken advocate for health and safety as well as torchbearer to bring this topic into the light. Jeff has undertaken considerable research as well as interviewed many guests during his radio show on the issue. Part of his research included assembling this extensive list of animal products used in our every day lives.

Please print off this page as a reference sheet for future use. If any of these ingredients are subsequently deemed to be hazardous, it will be an invaluable resource. Regardless, it is interesting see exactly what we are eating and wearing and how these products are used.

Jeff writes:

"In light of the potentially catastrophic spread of Mad Cow/nvCJD prions worldwide (UN WHO statement) throughout the food chain and environment, and my continuing call for completely new, mandatory universal medical/dental sterilization protocols - including the absolute cessation of the reuse of all invasive instruments and equipment - this incredible list will come as quite a surprise to many.

"I've broken most of the items down into Medical, Food, and General/Industrial categories to facilitate a grasp of the enormity of the use of animal products in our lives and the potential vectors of Mad Cow/CJD prions. This categorization is not necessarily complete; there are some consumables which are not listed in FOOD, for example, but the general point of the list is simple: just because one doesn't eat meat or dairy, doesn't mean one is necessarily safe from potential exposure to Mad Cow prions and contaminated/infected products from cattle.

"With the recent discovery in the UK that tonsils of BSE/TSE infected individuals contain the Mad Cow/CJD killer prions, one wonders if other body tissues might be similar repositories. One also ponders the ongoing and bizarre issue of mass cattle and other animal mutilations and wonders whether this is some kind of monitoring process to track the spread of environmental decay and toxicity...and prion diseases.

"From anti-aging creams to surgical sutures to chocolate milkshakes and marshmallows...we have injected animal products from cattle, sheep, and hogs into nearly every corner of our lives. Behold..."
