[Letters] Atypical BSE has no connection to MCD

The article, “Seoul to dispatch inspectors to U.S.?,?” unfortunately glazes over one key fact - that the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) recently reported in California was of an atypical variety. Atypical BSE is a rare genetic disease that occurs spontaneously in cattle. It has no connection to cattle consuming beef protein, which was the cause of the BSE outbreak in Europe. Atypical BSE is a natural phenomenon and can occur anywhere in the world - even in Korea.
