LIST OF VICTIMS of vCJD
Listed below are just a few of the names and profiles of the hundreds of people who have died of human BSE/vCJD. Tens of thousands more people in the UK and globally are disabled or ‘at risk of ‘vcjd’, after exposure to contaminated medicines, vaccines, blood or medical instruments.
Millions more of us were exposed repeatedly to BSE infected material throughout the 1980s, 1990s and beyond.
Millions of us in the UK and globally were and continue to be exposed to human mad cow disease, via medical instruments, medicines, vaccines, blood donations.
(updated January 2016)
Four people have died of vcjd in Italy, 3 from the same location, within weeks of each other August/Sept 2015.
One in 2,000 of the UK population carry the human form of mad cow disease according to research by the Health Protection Agency (November 11th 2011)
The victims below are the ones whose families have come forward and talked openly about their loved ones suffering. There have been hundreds more victims whose families have been so INTIMIDATED BY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS …NOT TO SPEAK OUT OR TALK that they remain hidden and traumatised. Unfortunately as the weeks, months and years pass numbers of victims will grow and hundreds possibly thousands more innocent people will die or be seriously affected by vCJD, the terrible and ongoing legacy of the BSE scandal.
The Health Protection Agency research found 60,000 plus people in the UK population may be carrying vCJD 18 Nov 2011 and have the ability to pass the deadly disease on-wards through blood donation and medical procedures. UK

The families in Queniborough are convinced there has been a huge cover-up with the government knowing the exact source of the human BSE infection in the village and nationally. The truth is kept secret as it would cause a huge legal case with many in authority imprisoned, with the toppling of those in power.

INDIA A middle-aged man diagnosed with vCJD, who had never left his home country, or visited the UK .
LIVING / CURRENT VICTIMS OF VCJD At the time of writing there are young people and individuals currently dying of vCJD in the UK and abroad. FAMILIES AND VICTIMS ARE KEPT SECRET AND APART FROM EACH OTHER and are told by officials from the Department of Health ‘NOT TO TALK TO ANYONE ABOUT THE DIAGNOSIS’ … 8 mothers and their new born babies are ‘at risk’ of developing vCJD after using the same delivery suite as a mum who died of vCJD. Many other new mothers have not been informed that the delivery suites and instruments used on victims of vCJD have been re used on them and their babies. (the rogue prions that cause vCJD cannot be destroyed by current sterilisation and eradication methods used by the NHS). 128 children in the UK have lost a mum or dad to vCJD. 9 children have been born to Mothers who died of vCJD within days, weeks or months of giving birth. One child is brain damaged as her mum was infected with vCJD during pregnancy. Two other children were born within days of their mothers dying of vCJD they remain well. Thousands of people in the UK and worldwide are ‘at risk’ of vCJD after receiving contaminated blood, blood products or medicines. They are the many ‘living victims’ who could develop the horrific human BSE at anytime but have been airbrushed from any official statistics.
VACCINES At least two million children in the UK are ‘at risk’ of vCJD after being routinely injected with vaccines sourced from BSE infected herds and material used from blood donors that have gone on to die of vCJD. (see vaccines page on this website to read about just some of the implicated injections).
HAEMOPHILLIACS AND HOSPITAL PAITENTS Thousands of haemophiliacs have been put ‘at risk’ of developing vCJD due to their medicine being sourced from Blood donors that went on to die of vCJD. A third of these were children under 16, a young boy of 8 was given blood from a donor that went on to die of vCJD. At least 18 blood donors in the UK have gone on to die of vCJD, many of their recipients have not been traced or informed. 66 patients were given blood from a donor that went on to die of vCJD. There are many other individuals who live with the ‘at risk’ status of developing vCJD, in the UK. These people have been given infected blood/blood products, have had medical procedures such as transplants, tissue organs/cells or have been in theatres/hospital environments where they have been exposed to the rogue prions that cause vCJD. They have been told they could develop the diseases at anytime. They are unable to give blood and many are disabled because of this ‘ticking health time bomb’. Last year an elderly haemophiliac man who died of ‘unrelated causes’. was found at autopsy to be carrying vCJD in his spleen. This pensioner had been given blood products from a blood donor that had gone on to die of vCJD. This victim was MV genotype. He had shown no signs of the disease and was silently carrying vCJD.
BLOOD – THE RISK OF VCJD Professor John Collinge UCL world expert prion disease ‘ one in a thousand of the UK population is probably silently carrying vCJD’ MAY 2008 this means that individuals may never develop the disease but have the ability to pass it onwards through blood, medical procedures. We do know that at least18 blood donors have died of vCJD in the UK and currently there are thousands of individuals world wide that are walking around not aware they may be at risk of ‘developing vCJD’ due to medicines and blood products they have received. Or EXPOSURE TO VCJD through ‘surgical incidence’. Many local authorities and governments have taken the stance ‘not to inform’ and indeed not to actively trace recipients.. In documents I have read it often states ‘ PATIENTS HAVE NOT BEEN NOTIFIED DUE TO LOCAL, CLINICAL DECISIONS’ or ‘currently notification is pending’. STEPHEN LUNT (see victims listed above) was injured in a car accident and received blood and then became a blood donor himself , he then died of vCJD. According to Stephens family his original blood donor and recipients were never traced. ( people who receive blood are no longer able to donate, however this does not prevent those ‘silently carrying the disease from giving blood) One of the current victims of vCJD received a blood transfusion for an operation several years ago. Her husband tells me ‘They (doh) are telling me very little about my wife’s blood donors, its all very secret……I keep asking questions though……I know she got vCJD from blood’.
THE COVERUP CONTINUES…… SPORADIC CJD This naturally occurring form of the disease pre BSE mainly affected people 60 plus and was rare, only one in a million people would develop the illness. Prof Collinge 8th December 2009 said ‘ The chances of developing sCJD are now one in 33,000 in the UK’ ’ Cases are also getting much younger there have been recorded incidences of the disease as young as 25 years old in the USA…. and 19 years old in the UK? Before BSE it was unheard of for anyone under 60 to develop this disease. In the USA experts have stated that there is a ‘ 1 in 9,000 chance of developing dementia’. HUNDREDS OF SPORADIC CJD CASES HAVE BEEN lifelong UK BLOOD DONORS …their recipients have not been traced. I believe many cases of sporadic CJD are connected to BSE and vCJD….numbers of sCJD cases have tripled in most countries where BSE CATTLE was endemic or exported. Experts in dementia believe we face a global epidemic of cases! Cases of dementia are getting much younger Why?
GROWTH HORMONE VICTIMS I HAVE INCLUDED THESE VICTIMS to highlight the significant danger of transmitting CJD through surgery and especially intravenously through vaccines and drugs. ALSO SOME OF THESE VICTIMS HAVE BEEN BLOOD DONORS Between 1959-1985 1,9000 children here in the UK were treated with growth hormone treatment. Many have since died of CJD. These treatments were extracted from cadaver’s pituitary glands whose brains were riddled with CJD. Many of the injections/medicines sourced from these infected cadavers were also exported abroad; thousands of people globally live with the ticking time bomb that they will develop CJD. These injectibles were mass produced and exported…..families across Europe and globally have also been devastated. Below are the names of some of those that have died, there are many many more victims…but once again Governments have intimidated families.
