Kruse worked in the "day kill area," where her job was to carve meat out of the back of butchered pigs' heads with a small knife. Her work area was next to the place where compressed-air hoses were used to remove brain material.
Health officials were concerned enough about exposure to raw pig meat to recommend that the plant shut down the air compressor system used to extract brain tissue from the skulls.

Symptoms first emerged around the same time the plant began using the high-powered air system. Some health experts think exposure to blood and pulverized tissue might have caused the autoimmune response.

Doesn't seem sensible that they would spend all that time and money on something they don't get.
I don't know of any data proving it but I think there is good reason to believe that Jews not only acquire MS at a similar rate but were among the first to experience a startling increase in incidence....in cities in Northern US and Europe.Viper wrote:You are probably right in that they also get MS at roughly the same rate?
That has always been one of the key questions regarding prevalence/incidence data, especially with the invent of the MRI and other modern tools. Most researchers accept that prevalence really is higher in "developed" countries and is rising in "developing" countries but that is a sore point of controversy. Remember that diagnosis still isn't made by MRI, it's just another tool.RedSonja wrote:I reckon the statistics show more Northern European (based) populations having MS only because they have access to medical staff and the infrastructure capable of recognising it.
