By Bob DeMarco



Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a rapidly fatal disorder that impairs memory and coordination and causes behavior changes.

“Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease” is believed to be caused by consumption of
products from cattle affected by “mad cow disease.”

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is caused by the misfolding of prion protein throughout the brain.
