After decades of intensive research, Dr. Frank Bastian at LSU has discovered the real cause of CWD. It is a minute bacterium called Spiroplasma. While for decades the mainstream theory has described a malformed protein (called a prion) as the cause with no known cure for CWD, Dr. Bastian has discovered that the prion is only a secondary vector that results from the bacterial action of the primary cause of CWD – the tiny bacterium. The prion is a bacterial by-product.
This breakthrough discovery is a game-changer, in that it is now possible to develop a vaccine – an antibiotic – to prevent and cure CWD. Unified’s current funding initiative toward raising $100,000 in each of three years will permit Dr. Bastian to approach the disease is three steps. First, within possibly a year he will develop a diagnostic hunter test kit that will permit hunters to immediately test their harvested deer or elk for CWD infection in the field at the point of harvest. Considering that the incubation period of the disease in deer is very long at 12-18 months, such a test kit is vital in determining whether your deer is disease free and safe for human consumption. Stages two and three involve development of a vaccine for captive deer (possibly the only way to prevent the collapse of the deer farming industry), and a vaccine to be administered to wild deer and elk.
Dr. Bastian’s discovery and USP’s CWD Project may well represent one of America’s most important conservation and human health achievements. Our effort is historic, and Unified’s many partners including Allegheny County Sportsmen’s League, Sinnemahoning Sportsmen’s Association, Pennsylvania State Camps Association, Eastern Pennsylvania Firearms Coalition, Firearms Owners Against Crime, and other groups and individuals are joining the force. The on-going threat to deer and elk in Pennsylvania is a catastrophe in the making, and we risk the loss of cervids (including deer, elk, and moose) throughout North America if CWD is not immediately addressed -- with real remedial measures.
The pending impact to the natural ecosystem -- the removal of our dominant herbivores -- is incalculable. The impact to society -- to tourism and recreation, to our tradition of sport hunting, and to the Second Amendment if sport hunting is destroyed -- will be staggering. The economic impact felt in Pennsylvania will be measured in the tens-of-billions-of-dollars, and across America in the many trillions-of-dollars.
As catastrophic as are these CWD impacts, things will get worse -- much worse. Dr. Bastian has discovered this CWD bacterium in domestic sheep and cattle (Mad Cow Disease), and CWD-related diseases have appeared in other wild animals including mink, camels, and big cats -- placing lions and tigers in the cross-hairs. This is not likely the end of the list of animals that are at risk and, if not now contained, the bacterium could spell disaster to worldwide natural ecosystems.
Now let's throw gasoline on the fire -- humans may be at risk. Scientists have found that some species of monkeys, our close primate relatives, are susceptible to CWD. Dr. Bastian has discovered this bacterium in association with other similar neurological diseases in sheep and cattle (Mad Cow Disease) as well as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) in humans, and he believes there is a linkage with Alzheimer's Disease. From this CWD Project, Dr. Bastian’s research discoveries will open the door toward pursuing cures for these and possibly other neurological (TSE) human diseases.
Dr. Bastian is leading the way into this revolutionary research, and USP has joined with him in assisting his research by pilot-testing his diagnostic test kits and vaccines in Pennsylvania before distribution throughout America. We are on the vanguard of solving the CWD scourge and protecting human health. Pennsylvania will be recognized as the national leader in eradicating this horrific bacterial disease that, as bad as it now is, has not even begun to rear its ugly head.

That is ground breaking news if it is correct.

I watched the video from Pennsylvania and this announcement. I have been loosely following Dr. Bastian's work for a while. I thought from the beginning he should have received more support from the scientific community than he was getting. I hope he is right. On the video the claim was made that CWD could be eliminated within 10 years. I certainly hope this pans out. In the interim I plan on hunting and consuming deer same as always.

Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be, if only I had a gun, and lord, if today is the day you call me home, let me die in a pile of empty brass
