Unclear: Prions, which are microscopic protein particles, are not free roaming. Infection by then is very rare and has been primarily associated with contaminated beef, monkey and other exotic animals. Mad cow disease, kuru, and Jacob Kreutzfeldt disease are the most well defined illnesses. I do not understand your question about the body's recording. Do not concern yourself. Or avoid beef and other meats
