Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a disease of the nervous system in deer and elk that results in distinctive brain lesions. It continues to be a major issue for wildlife scientists throughout the Nation, and a key focus for research at the USGS National Wildlife Health Center (NWHC).

Evidence from auditory nerve and brainstem evoked responses for an organic brain lesion in children with autistic traits
In an attempt to resolve the question as to whether children with autistic traits have an organic nervous system lesion, auditory nerve and brainstem evoked responses were recorded in a group of 15 children with autistic traits. The most obvious results included a longer response latency of the auditory nerve and a longer brainstem transmission time, compared to normal children. Five of the autistic children were found to be profoundly deaf. These results strengthen the theory that an organic lesion of the nervous system can give rise to autistic traits.

This editorial briefly reviews the significance of lymphoid nodular hyperplasia in the intestinal tract of children with autistic spectrum disorder. The distinction between physiological and pathological lymphoid hyperplasia of the intestinal tract is of importance in the context of a possible causative link with autism. A primary intestinal lesion may occur as part of the broad spectrum of immunological disorders to which autistic children are prone. 

Research on CWD is concentrated on:

  1. Understanding how the disease is transmitted among elk and deer, understanding the patterns of infection, and determining how infection rates differ according to age and sex of the animal.
  2. Searching for indications of genetic resistance to CWD, and developing tools for understanding CWD epidemics.
  3. Studying the role that infected deer carcasses play in CWD transmission and how feeding and baiting may affect transmission patterns.
  4. Exploring the susceptibility of small mammals and their potential role in the transmission of CWD.

The NWHC continues to investigate CWD in Wisconsin and throughout the Nation. NWHC scientists provide general information, consultation, and assistance to state agencies. NWHC staff participate in the multi-agency CWD Science and Health Team and the Research Team, providing analyses and advice crucial to determining the distribution of the disease in and around the Midwest.

Through collaboration and research, NWHC scientists seek a better understanding of the dynamics of CWD in wild populations as it expands over different landscapes. Scientists at the NWHC are committed to the belief that collaboration with many different agencies is critical to understanding and controlling this disease.

Chronic Wasting Disease Quick Fact

CWD infects elk, white-tailed deer, and mule deer, but is not known to infect livestock or humans at the present time. No treatment is known and the disease is typically fatal.

You know, wildlife has no way to come indoors to escape the chronic 24/7 increase in weakly ionizing radiation from our quantumsphere above our heads that our fine governments are increasing due to those radars pulsing microwave radiation.

Until further notice I suggest all expectant mothers, kids and elderly avoid the outdoors within a 50-100 mile radius of all microwave radars until physicists find the missing 95% energy in the universe and governments consult with their quantum gravity loop/string theorists and get back to you.
