Actually he cuts up dead bodies to pay the rent, has never conveyed much
knowledge of the living. If he seems a little crazy at times, just THINK

but were stuck with it because of their general incompetence at health
care for the still-breathing, have just GOT to lose their minds

most recent Institute of Medicine (part of the Nat'l Academies of
Science) report, "Advancing Prion Science: Guidance for the National
Prion Research Program (2004)"

Here's a direct link to Chapter 5, "Testing Blood for Evidence of Agents
of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies" (pp 108 - 124)
