File under “scary as h*ll” – Prions in animal fats?

This article from the science journal at Ars Technica gave me chills. (CLICK HERE to read it.)

If you haven’t the time (or are suffering from mouse-related trigger finger,) let me summarize:  prions — malformed proteins which cause neurodegenerative wasting diseases such as BSE (“mad cow disease'”) — which were previously only thought to exist in neural tissues of infected animals have NOW BEEN FOUND TO ACCUMULATE IN FAT TISSUES.  Think “sausage” or “ribeye steak.”

See if I get any sleep tonight…
