In clear and accessible language, "Mad Cows and Cannibals" explains the biology of TSEs and explores how political and social actions can contribute to their spread. It also answers questions about how TSEs affect the safety of our food supply, blood supply, and medical procedures. A comprehensive list of web and print resources points the way for continued exploration of this important and controversial topic.
