I have read a book

The title is, " The Family That Couldn't Sleep", by D.T. Max. It is fascinating story about what we know about Prion diseases like "mad cow", etc from the beginning to what we know now. Did you know that there is a genetic form of Prion disease? The author is a good writer and you will not be bored.

When you have read it, please give us your comments.

This truly is a fascinating book. It would lead you to believe mad-cow is common in the USA. Denny Crane believes he has it and that may be what's responsible for Dick Cheney's behavior as well. But seriously, some of what we are experiencing as Alzhiemer's Disease may have a basis in prions.
