"Cow Parts ""If BSE disease"

Cow Parts ""If BSE disease does come to the United States, it will inevitably wreak havoc because nearly everything we touch or taste has cow in it. A lesson in truly efficient recycling."" The science of recycling in the technological age has unexpected results. I was aware of BSE and rumnants, but not the extent to which bovines have infultrated society. I have sometimes commented that a vegan must avoid petrochemcials because they are merely the processed bodies of dead animals converted into oil over millions of years. That bombastic statement, meant to imply how difficult it is to escape from consuming animal products, it much more true than I thought. For the record, however, I'm not vegitarian. I just prefer organic/freerange pepperoni."
