OPINION: How safe is beef? U.S. kept in dark

US - Since the discovery of a mad-cow infected Holstein in Washington state, our public officials have been busy telling consumers that there is nothing to worry about. President Bush and Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman even made a point of serving beef at their holiday tables. But given how little we know about the scope of the contamination and the nature of the disease, such gestures are little more than acts of faith, not demonstrations of safety.
