Seventy percent of US hamburger contains up to 25% per pound of "pink slime" which consists of the slaughterhouse floor wastes treated with ammonia and water to kill E. coli and Salmonella bacteria.

The problem is, ammonia does NOT inactivate mad cow prions which may be part of the ankle-deep muck of blood, fats, tissue and scraps on the floor:

Slaughterhouses are required to remove "SRM" - specified risk materials- the parts of a cow with the highest concentrations of prions. SRM include the skull, brain,ganglia, eyes, tonsils, spinal cord and small intestine. Power tools, including chain saws, are used to cut up the carcasses.. It is unavoidable that potentially prion infected wastes from high risk tissues end up on the blood-soaked slaughterhouse floors - to be incorporated into the pink slime. See pink slime video

Alzheimer's is a prion disease - 6 million US victims Dr. Claudio Soto, Univ/Texas .http://www.alzheimers-prions. com/pdf/CLAUDIO-SOTO-CONFIRMS- AD-IS-PRION-DISEASE-OCT-2011.p df and .

Pink slime is a likely pathway to deliver infectious prions to an unsuspecting public, including school children at risk for autism which is approaching epidemic proportions.. The Prion Institute in Alberta, Canada, is studying Autism as a prion disease
