Since early 1980s when BSE infected material entered the human and medicine chain cases of sporadic cjd/ dementia have increased dramatically. Pre BSE sporadic CJD (naturally occurring form of the disease which is spontaneous and usually in the elderly) was ‘one in a million ‘ now Professor John Collinge and other experts in prion diseases state that in the UK individuals now have ‘1 in 33,000 chance of developing cjd during their lifetime’. These rising cases have nothing to do with better diagnosis or an ageing population as this has been taken into account, this huge increase is worrying. The numbers of younger people succumbing to sCJD here in the UK and across the globe is un-precedented.
It would appear scientific knowledge and these experts including Professor Collinge’s integrity is now being questioned and rubbished by UK Prime Minister David Cameron who has told me ‘ I understand there is no evidence that would support a suggestion that one in 33,000 people are developing cjd’ july 18th 2011
I was a member of the audience when Professor Collinge, Simon Mead and various other prion experts revealed the fact that ‘1 in 33,000 in the UK would develop cjd’ this was during a packed and recorded lecture at the National Neurological hospital in central London December 2008. So is Cameron calling these world experts liars?
My investigation, published papers from global experts in prion disease have revealed that sCJD continues to rapidly rise with worrying much younger cases, this is a fact that the UK Prime Minister is denying. BUT AS LEADER OF THE SAME POLITICAL PARTY WHICH CREATED BSE HE WOULD WOULDN’T HE?
Experts have also told me in recorded interviews that ‘At Post Mortem/autopsy middle-aged and older people who may well have died of vCJD their brain pathology can and does present like ‘sporadic cjd’. Continuing ‘We have had cases where the brain lesions can be seen as both sporadic and vCJD.’ concluding ‘we have been told not to record vCJD.’
At least 300 people who have died of sCJD or was it vCJD? in the UK were life long blood donors, their blood given to thousands of individuals across the UK. I believe these recipients of blood/blood products/vaccines are at risk but they like thousands of other people across the globe are oblivious.
Cases of sCJD are rising not just in the UK but globally and there are clusters of cases of sCJD in the same areas as younger people are dying of vCJD. This points at a common source of infection, the UK government and its scientists are aware of this source but it’s being kept ‘top secret ' too many in the UK establishment would be immediately culpable.
Below are just two more incidents of sCJD here in the UK, the first press article examines the death of a Mr Corbett from the county of Gloucester where currently there are young victims dying of vCJD. Mr Corbett’s symptoms and length of illness is typical of vCJD. Although the human form of BSE predominately affects younger people I have talked at length with wives who have lost their husbands to vCJD in their sixties (the victims had not received blood transfusions) . So it’s more than possible for older people to develop vCJD and many farmers, farm hands and farmers’ wives have died of vCJD. With this blog is a photo of vCJD victim Kate Richer on vacation at a farm where she use to help milk the cows. University Graduate Kate died aged 22.
The second case of Durham man Bob Wall has now been overturned and the Edinburgh CJD unit is saying it’s probable or possible case of sCJD. There have been clusters of vCJD cases in the Durham area.
This is Gloucestershire | Cheltenham man dies of CJD.
August 5th 2011
A CHELTENHAM man died from CJD, the extremely rare degenerative neurological disorder, a coroner has ruled at an inquest.
However, Richard Corbett's death was not related to mad cow disease, the coroner said, even though he had worked with cattle.
The inquest at the Seasons Conference Centre in Cheltenham heard that the type of the disease Mr Corbett had contracted had no proven link to bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).
Gloucestershire deputy coroner David Dooley was told that the 66-year-old was a resident at St Faith's Nursing Home, in Malvern Road, Cheltenham, where he died on May 19 last year.
He had been a management consultant, his sister Anne Oxley-Corbett told the inquest. He never married, but had a daughter who lives with her mother, she added.
"As well as being a management consultant, he also reared calves and sold them through the livestock trade," she said.
"He was fit and well until July 2008 when he started to have mental problems.
"He was eventually referred for psychiatric diagnosis and it was thought he had some type of Alzheimer's disease.
"He deteriorated week by week and had to go into full-time nursing care in October 2009. His condition was never fully diagnosed, even though he had several sets of tests and the time from the onset of the disease to his death was so short."
A joint postmortem examination of Mr Corbett's brain by experts Dr Declan McGoyne and Professor Seth Love found widespread changes in keeping with CJD. These were of the very rare sporadic MV2 sub-type of the disease, which was not linked to BSE.
Recording a verdict of death by natural causes, the coroner said Mr Corbett had been in close contact with animals for many years but that the CJD linked to BSE could only be caught by the ingestion of the infected protein from older animals.
"And it only affects younger humans," he said.
"This was an older man who worked with young calves."
He said Mr Corbett's death had been from a naturally occurring disease that had run its normal course.
The Health Protection Agency said after Mr Corbett's inquest that the strain of CJD he had developed occurred worldwide at a rate of just one case per million per year.
It said variant CJD was strongly linked to exposure, probably through food, to BSE, but that the sporadic CJD, which Mr Corbett died from, was not linked to BSE.
Durham businessman dies of 'mad cow disease'
· by Alastair Craig, The Journal, July 23 2011.
A NORTH East business executive has died just weeks after being diagnosed with the rare Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, the human form of mad cow disease.
Bob Wall, a married father-of-one, was managing director of a division of the highly successful construction firm Esh Group, based in County Durham.
An inquest into the 51-year-old’s death is expected to be opened shortly, following his funeral at All Saints’ Church in Lanchester, County Durham.
Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), or ‘human BSE’, is linked to consuming contaminated beef and came to worldwide prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s as “mad cow disease” swept the UK and Europe.
Mr Wall, from Waterhouses, near Durham city, was the managing director of Deerness Fencing, one of the region’s largest manufacturers and installers of timber and metal partitions, with clients including Yuill Homes, UK Coal and local.
The firm is a subsidiary of the Durham-based Esh Group, and was founded in 1976 by Michael Hogan.
Mr Hogan, now development director and a major shareholder at Esh Group, last night paid tribute to his former MD, describing him as “an inspirational role model for young business people”.
In 2006, Mr Wall accepted a Journal business award on behalf of the firm for its excellent work in the community.
“I have known Bob for some 13 years and, how to give tribute to him, I just don’t know where to start,” said Mr Hogan.
“What I will say is that as a work colleague he gave 100% and constantly pushed himself for improvement.
“He was a genuine one-off, this level of commitment however was regarded as normal by Bob.
“When he took up the managing director role of Deerness Fencing he improved the business I’d owned and ran for some 20 years beyond all expectations and we as Esh Group will be forever grateful to Bob for this.
“To the other managers and directors of the group I’m sure he was a role model they aspired to.
