Rick Berman, the tobacco lobbyist who runs Consumer Freedom.com (which he started with $900,000 from Philip Morris) condemns us for "fearmongering" about the dangers of mad cow-type diseases in the US. Berman uses a combination of false claims and misinformation to smear us and our 1997 book Mad Cow USA. Berman's operation is funded by food and booze interests such as Philip Morris, the world's largest tobacco company and the largest food conglomerate in the US. Maybe Berman's clients believe his propaganda, but the spread of mad cow-like Chronic Wasting Disease in deer and elk across the US, and a growing number of young human CJD deaths, is raising serious concerns within the mainstream medical community, as UPI reports today. Our book Mad Cow USA is available free online as a PDF download.
