In brief: Prions

Prions are small abnormal proteins that can be transmitted by eating certain types of foods which usually contain parts of the central nervous system (i.
e. The brain). The prions cause a reaction in the brain of the consumer which affect other normal proteins which leads to brain damage and progressive neuro-degeneration.
