Many prion infected venison eaters may be misdiagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, rather than sporadic Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease.

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and sporadic Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (sCJD)
are sister prion diseases [like mad cow and Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)], transmissible, infectious by tainted meat, aerosols, medical equipment,(scopes, etc.) dental and eye equipment, blood, urine, feces,saliva, mucous. Doctors frequently misdiagnose AD and sCJD one for the other. The symptoms and neuropathology are almost identical. AD epidemic = 6 million US victims, new case every 69 seconds.

"The prion-like behavior implicated in Alzheimer's disease also suggests that it may be transmissible like mad cow disease."

""Our findings open the possibility that some of the sporadic Alzheimer's cases may arise from an infectious process," senior author Claudio Soto said in a statement in October. "

The prion disease signature of amyloid plaques are found in the brains of BASE mad cows, chronic wasting disease deer, and AD, early onset Alzheimer's dementia and sCJD victims.

Interspecies Transmission from Cervid Prions*- December 27, 2010

"Besides the importance of our results for public health in relation to the putative transmissibility of CWD to humans, our data also illustrate a very important and novel scientific concept related to the mechanism of prion transmission across species barriers."

"Our results have far-reaching implications for human health, since they indicate that cervid PrPSc can trigger the conversion of human PrPC into PrPSc, suggesting that CWD might be infectious to humans."
