Are you scared to eat beef because of mad cow disease?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 29, 2003
“It’s something serious. When I heard about mad cow, I converted to chicken.”
“If people start dropping dead, I will, but at the moment, no. I’m more concerned about the economic impact.”
“I’m more worried about being struck by lightning. I don’t think there is a snowball’s chance in hell it’s going to affect me.”
“No, not really — I just bought some hamburger today. I’m not worried about it because of the safeguards the USDA has enforced.”
