Christine Lord's son Andrew was killed by the human form of mad cow disease (vCJD) aged 24 years old.
The freelance journalist's five-year investigation has resulted in a book. She said:
"When he was dying he begged me to find out who did this to him and expose them. Since then I have investigated the BSE scandal and campaigned relentlessly for all victims of human BSE, the thousands that continue to be affected and the millions of us exposed to BSE-infected meat.
"My beloved son Andrew need never have died: vCJD should never have existed in humans. Andrew was a rising star in the media. He was handsome, healthy with a bright future. He worked for TalkSPORT, Sky and BBC as a producer/researcher. In March 2007, Andrew produced his last live national radio show and by December he was blind, quadriplegic, unable to move, swallow or recognise his friends.
"My five-year investigation has resulted in my book Who Killed my Son? which exposes the UK's biggest political and health scandal of modern times."
The book will be launched in the NUJ headquarters, Headland House.
