Storyline

The story of Britain's biggest ever food scandal. Since 1996, almost 200 people have died from Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, whilst BSE has been responsible for the death of over four million cows. It has cost the NHS over a billion pounds and virtually destroyed the British beef industry in the 1990s. A story of greed, corruption and catastrophic political misjudgement by the then Conservative government can be found beneath the statistics. This film pieces together a forgotten chapter of our recent history, with access to all of the politicians, scientists and families who have been defined by this epidemic. Written by DragonSusie

A frightening true story
13 July 2019 | by DragonSusieSee all my reviews

I'm glad that this documentary is here to remind us of the devastation caused by the greed that turned cattle into cannibals. What the hell did they think would happen by forcing them to eat so unnaturally? They just didn't think!

I was born in '81 and have been a vegetarian since '93, yet I could be still carrying the disease without even knowing. No one knows how many could be infected. It'll probably take someone famous showing symptoms before they even truly put the money in to try and find a cure.

I now live abroad and am unable to donate blood because of this disease. The world remembers, even when the politicians try to forget.
