@Mad cow disease spread from cow to cow. Mad cow disease can not spread from
cow to human.
The safe part or non-infection parts from cow are meat, tongue and milk.

Even the number of cow increase in slaughtered house, the safety standard will not be changed.

Among 4 (Brain, spinal cord, distal ileum, eyes) mad-cow disease infected organs,
even we eat them, we, human have first protection in our mouth. After passing the first protections in our
mouth, the chance pathogenic bacteria enter our body is about 1/100000. The probability is very small, so it is very difficult for our body to be infected by those pathogenic bacteria. Because of this reason, US disapproved blanked testing toward all cows in there.
