Post #1  Post subject: Health officials adjust advice to hunters regarding CWD

What the Centers for Disease Control was saying until recently about eatin' deer and elk in light of CWD, which is in G&F's Guidebook this year on page 6:

There has been no evidence to date of CWD transmission to humans. Nonetheless, consuming meat from deer or elk that appear sick or test positive for CWD is not recommended.

What the Centers for Disease Control is now saying on their website:

To date, there have been no reported cases of CWD infection in people. However, animal studies suggest CWD poses a risk to some types of non-human primates, like monkeys, that eat meat from CWD-infected animals or come in contact with brain or body fluids from infected deer or elk. These studies raise concerns that there may also be a risk to people. Since 1997, the World Health Organization has recommended that it is important to keep the agents of all known prion diseases from entering the human food chain.

One must always keep in mind that the WHO and the CDC are based on liberal political leanings and IMO will push that agenda in ay way. I tend to take their advice with a certain amount of salt.

As an example it is a fact mad cow, BSE, can transmit to humans rarely but do you see them campaigning against beef? No you do not and the reason is pure politics and money. Hunters, hunting and all associated and related pursuits are outside of the economic and political power structure. Easy to pick on. :twocents:
