Greg asked the Naked Scientists:
   
What is the risk to me of Bovine TB? Is there a health risk to me if I eat meat from an infected cow or drink its pasturised milk?

What do you think?

During the occupation of the UK by American troops during WWII they were forbidden to drink English milk and had the powered variety shipped in from the USA as English milk was considered too contaminated.
