Question:
From England:

I use beef insulin. Might I get mad cow disease from using this?

Answer:
I think that you are more likely to begin "mooing" than to catch mad cow disease from beef insulin. The purification process is extreme and in any case, the cows used in your insulin almost certainly have Danish or American passports.
