“Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by
imbeciles who really mean it.” - Mark Twain -

Sprouts and Foodborne Disease: Seed can be contaminated in the field from agricultural water, from
improperly composted manure, contaminated soil, and from feral or grazing farm animals.

SEWAGE SLUDGE OR BIOSOLIDS?  Is It A Toxic Hazardous Solid Waste or Safe Fertilizer?
Ignorance, Confusion, and Lies
http://thewatchers.us/book/sludge-biosolids.html

The Gatekeepers is the unbelievable but true story of how the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency and University of Georgia willfully published false and misleading scientific data to protect
their own political and financial interests. In the process, they destroyed two of Georgia's oldest
and most productive dairy farms and a leading research scientist who was working in the public
interest. Yet, what happened in Georgia is only the proverbial tip of an iceberg below which hides
a concerted national effort by EPA, USDA, the wastewater industry, and a network of land grant
universities to literally farm out disposal of the Nation's hazardous wastes by disguising them as
environmentally beneficial organic nutrients. EPA's biosolids programs are built on a
foundation of false claims and scientific fraud − shielded by special interests reaping untold
profits from concealing the toxic ingredients in processed sewage sludges.

science and lie to farmers and the public for 30 years, but they have.

INDUSTRY FEARS BIOSOLIDS SUITS AFTER COURTS REJECT EPA RULE DEFENSE
The biosolids industry is scrambling to assess the financial risk from a growing number of tort

courts are rejecting industry defenses that EPA regulations allowing the controversial practice
preempt the tort suits.

EPA's Lisa Jackson's statement during Legislative Hearing on the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA) before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works uses the same
tired old line used by most regulatory agencies who fail to fulfill their assigned functions-- we don't
have enough money, or enough people, or enough power to do the job. So, they receive more
taxpayer dollars to hire more people and get more power to cover up their misdeeds. EPA now
acknowledges that sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) will
cause
premature deaths in people with heart or lung disease; heart attacks; asthma and
respiratory failure; chronic bronchitis and acute bronchitis;

Politics of Hazardous Chemicals and Etiologic Agents on Water, Land and Air
The Ticking Time Bomb Explodes
The ticking time bomb theory was promoted in a 1980 EPA funded publication "Waste Alert". This
term was used in response to the "time honored practice" of  dumping hazardous chemical and
sewage waste in shallow land burial sites.  At the same time the Office of Solid Waste Division was
intent on cleaning up these massive hazardous waste dump sites such as Love Canal and
Velsicol's 350,000 barrel Hardeman County, Tennessee drum farm, the Office of Water Division was
focused on creating  even more chemical and infectious hazardous sewage waste dump sites on
agricultural land under an Inter agency Policy (signed by FDA and USDA). The Water Division
promoted the time honored practice of using sewage as a fertilizer.

Spreading Sewage Sludge on U.S. Fields, Hidden Cause of Food Safety Problems
The House recently passed a new food safety bill (HR2749) giving the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) new power and more money. According to recently discovered documents,
this will do nothing to protect our food. Since 1980 it has been the official national policy to
dispose of sewage waste on grazing land, fruits and vegetables, parks school grounds and home
lawns.

EPA's NON-RISK ASSESSMENT
http://www.deadlydeceit.com/503-Riskassessment.html

Early studies show sludge biosolids not safe.
Some of the early studies are indexed that show the fecal coliform is the name of a test for
thermotolerant bacteria and that antibiotic resistant bacteria are created in treatment plants. Gene
transfer is also taking place at the same time.  The studies also show that bacteria survived in a
desiccated state - until they get moisture. Maybe now we can all start talking the same language to
protect our lands, food, water, and health.
