Who Killed My Son? Review (originally published in the Journalist)

25 Oct


Losing a child is every mother’s worst nightmare. For NUJ member Christine Lord, the nightmare was compounded by the fact that her son Andrew died aged just 24 of VcJD, the human variant of BSE (“mad cow disease”).

Who Killed My Son? is Christine’s riveting account of her six-year investigation into Andrew’s death and the broader issue of how BSE passed from animals to humans during the 1980s. She discovered that the public had been lied to time and again, that vital scientific evidence had been repressed and that government inquiries had been misled.

This was a scandal that went right to the top of British politics, industry and agriculture. Furthermore, VcJD remains a huge risk today because millions were exposed at the time and the incubation period is long. While researching the book, Christine received a number of threats to her safety, but was not deterred from seeking out the truth.

Who Killed My Son? is at once a page-turning thriller and an urgent piece of investigative journalism that should be read by anyone who cares about the food they eat, the politicians they elect and the scientists they place their trust in.

Who Killed My Son? is available now as an ebook from Amazon.

    It is also important to support her. Christine Lord refused the Govt £100,000 ‘No fault, no blame’ payment as she refuses to be gagged. Buying the book will help her fund a trip to the US to talk about the issues.

    CASH, COWS & COVER UPS is the new documentary… Please support this documentary from Partickular Films. vCJD is still taking lives and this documentary will show how poor husbandry and infected bovine in vaccines are to blame for many hundreds of deaths and many more to come … Please share and support.
