BSA and Mad Cow Disease


#1

This topic has sort of sprouted up from another thread. Long r3 IGF 1 is becoming very popular in certain circles. It is cheap, and for right now, legal to sell.

Except for maybe a couple of studies that may or may not be currently underway, IGF 1 is srictly for animal use, and not for humans. Being that it is pretty much exclusively for animal use, Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) is used in making the IGF-1.

There are a select few labs that use Human Serum Albumin (HSA), but they are exhorbitant in price ($450+/g for HSA v. $160 - 250/g for BSA).

This is my question for AR, Cy, P-22, BBB, or any of you guys that have any knowledge of Long r3 IGF-1:

Is there a danger - be it even a minute one - of contracting Mad Cow Disease from the use of Long r3 IGF-1 containing BSA imported from either Aisa or Europe?
