Sir: Another press uproar about BSE and the health risks of eating beef.

Is it not true that the motor car kills thousands of people each year? Should it too be banned in order to save lives?

I think that it is time that the responsible press undertook some elementary risk assessment of the whole issue of BSE instead of continuing to undermine and destroy one section of a great British industry.
