I don't think you are. If I recall heat is the only way to kill CWD and Mad Cow. Its was some type of protein ?? and at a cellular level and If I'm thinking right something along the lines of bonding of the cells. Best they can come up with here again if I recall is that these are from farm animals eating tankage. Tankage is like dog food made from extra unusable parts and items from slaughtering or packing plants. Basically they made a dog food and feed it to livestock. So they for the $$, feed unnatural items to a animal, and after a few generations we find these diseases. Been about 10 years since I have spent the time studying all of the things, and any other sickness that were common about most thing farm animals can get.
Most people think deer are like goats in many ways they are but many ways there not.
Look at Liver, and other organs see if the color of them look right. Brain and spine, look for things that maybe different or odd. Color of fat ? Over the years cutting meat (deer) we saw some deer that just looked different, they felt okay and smelled okay, but fat was a funny color and they were all muscle fat was like a yellow/orange ?? .
Looks like crap, smell like crap must be crap.
Some of the latest bugs, pests, diseases or not going to be killed by cooking them. Takes 800 plus to kill the protein bond for mad cow.
Best I can tell anyone is read and study. Read allot from Europe and Middle East, Asia as some of these are out of the control of the huge companies here in the US. I would start by UK and Germany. Funny thing about UK in some King long ago was an herbalist, and past laws to protect there usage and study, thus make it illegal to try to limit its usage. So they along with eastern medicine are on a more natural way of thinking. In Germany the health system usage of herbs is right there along with so call modern medicine.
I like to eat meat but a lot of ?? out there.
