Will California's case of mad cow disease make you change your eating habits?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Nick Veronin.

"When I heard about the mad cow disease, I thought to myself, 'It's a slow news week.' I'm not changing what I eat as a result."

David Fishman, Sunnyvale

"We only eat kosher beef. I know that those standards are very different, and I'm not worried about it."

Betsy Singer, Davis

"I'm not concerned about mad cow disease. I haven't put much thought into it."

Richard Warren, San Jose

"No. From my understanding, that particular cow was not meant to be used for food, so I think it doesn't pose any problem for humans."

Steve Savage, Syracuse, N.Y.

"I'm not worried about mad cow disease. I understand it's a dairy cow — only used for milk and never slaughtered for beef."

Dan Holden, Los Altos
