Default prions. cheese. mad cow disease. milk.



a. Theoretically, could the prions of mad cow disease get into cheese?...


b. Or why not?...

What is it about making cheese that takes care of any prions of mad cow
disease?...



c. How about milk ?...

Since prions occur only in nerve tissue, there is no way for them to get into
the milk in the first place, so cheese making is not an issue.
