Beware of sewage-sludge compost


    I read the story regarding the Hailey sewer and the sewage sludge issue (“Hailey sewer plant bond could reach $3M,” March 13). I have family in Blaine County but I live in Pittsfield, Ohio. We are fighting the EPA’s “biosolids program,” through which companies are contaminating our lands and our food source with the sludge from wastewater treatment plants.
    There is a terrible bacteria called E. coli that does not respond to any antibiotics and is found in sludge from sewage plants. There are also dangerous proteins called “prions” in the sludge, which the February issue of the Federal Register called a “new life form.” They cannot be killed easily and are killing our people. The World Health Organization is now looking into them as a cause of autism, ADD/ADHD, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
    The spread of this stuff on fields, golf courses, lawns, etc. is contaminating our water and our crops. The companies that reuse this sludge on our lands are paid to take the sludge away from the sewage plant, but give it away free to unknowing, uninformed farmers and gardeners. The sludge also contains toxic metals and pharmaceuticals.
    The fight involves these so-called “soil scientists” who are making millions making compost out of this stuff and selling it at 1,000 percent profit.  When you buy any compost, make sure it does not have the word “bio” in it, which means human fecal sludge. The EPA decided to decrease awareness by coining phrases like “bio,” “organic compost” and “biosolids,” all of which are toxic. Why? Cities save money by not incinerating the sludge. It is all about lobbyists and big money.
    Here are two eye-opening websites to check out:   HYPERLINK "http://www.sludgefacts.org/" "_blank" www.sludgefacts.org and

    Sickness is coming from our water and we’re eating it in our vegetables and fruits grown in this sludge! We need help in stopping this practice. Ask questions. Protect your beautiful community and your children!
