The preliminary results of a new study conducted by the Canadian Food and Inspection Agency found the possibility of chronic wasting disease transferring to humans via consumption of infected meat.
The Casper Star Tribune reports the Centers For Disease Control announced the preliminary results though they have not yet been peer reviewed. CWD has not been discovered in Montana but has been found in Wyoming where officials recommend any game testing positive for the disease should not be reviewed.
Until this time no conclusive evidence existed that CWD could be transferred to humans. The Canadian researchers fed meat from infected animals to macaques, a monkey genetically similar to humans. The macaques contracted CWD during the test.
