The Truth about NAIS and BSE:
Why NAIS Will Not Prevent "Mad Cow Burgers"
By Judith McGeary - April 26, 2006
NAIS has been touted as the solution to the Mad Cow problem, with people claiming that "We need tracking to prevent 'Mad Cow-burgers.'" This mythology gained new force after tests confirmed the presence of Mad Cow disease in a cow in Alabama, as various people asserted that this event showed the need for a national animal identification system.

But like many mythologies, this one is based on fear and a lack of understanding of the facts. NAIS is neither needed, nor even useful, for addressing concerns about Mad Cow disease.
