Another reason to only eat Alberta beef.

Apparently, the US Agriculture Department doesn't think it needs to test for mad cow disease very much. Now, I'm not an epidemiologist or an expert on food safety, so I really have no idea what constitutes a reasonable degree of food testing to ensure safety. I really don't. However, when one considers the generally cavaliar attitude of the Bush administration towards public safety (Katrina, anyone?), it's hard to take seriously the claims that a 90% reduction in frequency of tests is being done with the public interest in mind.

As the commercials say: Eat Mor Chikin.
