Review of Who Killed My Son? by Christine Lord

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationBook/Film/Article review


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.
