i was reading the box on those altoid mints, they are made in england, and a major ingredient is geletin.
since it is made from animal biproducts including nerve collums, the possibility of teh transmittal of prions the protien like structures responsible for croitzfeld jacobs disease ( human mad cow) seems possible.
someone please tell me iam wrong. and no heat does not kill or damage prions.
