The most dangerous thing about prions that are proteins is that cooking does not kill prions. Almost nothing can kill them. Scientist has taken the brain of a chimp that was stored in formaldehye for three years and injected it into another live chimp. The chimp developed CJD.
Supposing the prion lives in the brain and spinal cord. We have been advised against consuming these particular parts. I wonder what is in balogna, salami, weiners, sausage and etc.
