The latest changes in the ecosystem lead to thinking about the benefits of avoiding meat. In the last few years we have witnessed the great dangers brought by eating meat. In Europe there were cases of “mad cow” disease, which affects cattle for feeding the so-called. bone meal or. milled bones of dead cows. The first cases were recorded in the 80s, more precisely in 1986 in England, in sheep, in order to then spread to cows. This opened up the possibility of poisoning and lead to the development of forms of encephalitis, bovine spongiform encephalopathy. Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is a neurodegenerative disease of cattle that is associated with Creutzfeld-Jacob’s disease in people who consumed contaminated meat. The disease is fatal and has been reported more deaths in Europe (148 in the UK, six in France and one in Italy), and in sj. America. Were introduced rigorous measures imposed on imports of meat from countries where the disease appeared, but even that can not guarantee the avoidance of infection.
