Default Bone/ Blood Meal and Mad Cow Disease

On Fri, 28 May 2004 00:21:22 +0200 (CEST), George Orwell
opined:

Does anyone know of any research that has been done on the potential for
contracting mad cow disease from using bone meal or blood meal as a soil
amendment for veggies or herbs. That is, assuming no direct contact with
the stuff.


I don't know that data, but soft rock phosphate is far better for soil than is
bone meal and seaweed is far better for soil than is blood meal.

....as an aside.
