Beware the prions of vCJD

I wish I was talking about a planet of weirdly-garbed aliens from Star Trek, but this is all too real:
"A new British study has shown that patients and blood donors could be at risk of contracting vCJD, the human form of mad cow disease." The article's not clear about how donors are actually at risk of contracting the disease.
