  5. The Stink About Human Poop As Fertilizer By Natasha Geiling on July 17, 2014 Here’s the thing about poop: everybody does it, which means that there’s a lot of it lying around waiting to be dealt with. Before the Clean Water Act of 1972 (and the outlawing of open-ocean dumping in 1988), raw sewage simply ran untreated into our oceans, streams and rivers. Once we figured out that this was a grievous insult to public health and the environment, we decided to start pumping our waste into treatment facilities—which cleaned up our water, but left us with the question of what to do with the nearly 8 million tons of poop we produce each year. Some waste treatment plants burn it or ship it to landfills, which aren’t the most economically or environmentally friendly solutions. But not all poop ends its life by fire or burial. Some human waste ends up in forests and farm fields as the treated, human-feces-based fertilizer known as biosolids. Find the idea of growing tomatoes with human excrement repulsive? It’s a common response, one that Washington State University soil scientist Craig Cooger finds strange. “We’re not as grossed out by animal manure as we are by human poop,” he explains. “Although biosolids are a long way removed from the poop, nonetheless there’s that perception issue there.” “Humans have been repurposing their feces for thousands of years—some more safely than others.” But skepticism about biosolids comes from more than just our hesitance to talk about our poop—some organizations, like the Sierra Club, worry that using human excrement as fertilizer is significantly riskier than using animal manure. Almost 50 percent of biosolids created in the United States are applied to land, with the majority being used in agriculture. Are we endangering our health by putting human poop on our farms? Humans have been repurposing their feces for thousands of years—some more safely than others. Often known by its euphemistic name “night soil,” the most famous example of raw human waste applicationmight be China, where human excrement was used for centuries in an attempt to close the nutrient cycle in their fields, something that agricultural scientist F.H. King cited in the early 20th century as the reason behind China’s seemingly perennial fertility. While night soil might have helped China’s land retain crucial nutrients, it didn’t win any awards for public health. Because the night soil was often untreated, pathogens could easily be transferred to both humans and food (so eating raw vegetation was seriously frowned upon). Biosolids used in the United States aren’t night soil. Regulated by the EPA and federal codes, treatment plants are required to treat the waste at least once before it can be applied to any land. After you flush your waste is carried along with urine, rainwater and household water to a local sewage treatment plant. From there, bacteria digest the sludge (the solid waste before treatment, a process that accomplishes two things: it makes the sludge less biologically active (meaning it stinks less) and it reduces the amount of pathogens in the biosolid. Biosolids treated once are called Class B biosolids, and can be used with various restrictions, because while the pathogen levels are reduced by a single treatment, they’re not completely gone. That requires a second treatment—often using high temperatures—and turns the biosolids into Class A biosolids, which have no detectable pathogens and can be used anywhere. And yet, even with EPA regulations and treatment processes in place, people still worry about biosolids. Groups like the Sierra Club, the Center for Food Safety and the Organic Consumers Association worry that outdated regulations and guidelines based on antiquated science make biosolids a threat to public health. “Urban sludges are a highly complex, unpredictable biologically active mixture of organic material and human pathogens, some of which are resistant to antibiotics or cannot be destroyed through composting sludge can contain thousands of industrial chemicals, including dozens of carcinogens, hormone disrupting chemicals, toxic metals, dioxins, radionuclides and other persistent bioaccumulative poisons,” warns the Sierra Club. In 2009, an EPA survey of biosolids produced by 74 randomly selected treatment plants found traces of pharmaceuticals, steroids, flame retardants and chemicals in their samples, though the agency states that “it is not appropriate to speculate on the significance of the results until a proper evaluation has been completed and reviewed.” “They find it fascinating that we can take human waste and find a new use for it.” But biosolid proponents, and soil experts like Cooger, stress that with materials like pharmaceuticals or heavy metals, the dose makes the poison. “You’re going to find higher levels of metals in biosolids than you will in manure, but the levels are still so low, and the chemistry of interactions between biosolids and soil is such that availability to plants is very low,” he explains. “Given the metal levels in biosolids, we don’t see problems in the food chain or in the environment.” And with pharmaceuticals or steroids, Cooger is quick to note that many animals receive heavy doses of both—which would certainly find their way into animal manure, often in larger concentrations than biosolids. In a 2002 National Academy of Sciences study looking at the regulation of biosolids and land application (known as Federal Part 503), the Academy concluded, “There is no documented scientific evidence that the Part 503 rule has failed to protect human health.” Public opinion, Cooger notes, is mixed when it comes to biosolids—but those that have experience with it tend to be more accepting than those that don’t. Jennifer Rusch, a media relations officer for Kansas City, MO, agrees. The city has sponsored a farm for years that takes biosolids from treatment plants around the city and uses it for fertilizer. “Within the city, we’ve actually had a lot of support from the mayor and city council and our customers,” she says. “They find it fascinating that we can take human waste and find a new use for it.” http://modernfarmer.com/2014/07/stink-human-poop-fertilizer/
  6. I would have puked
  7. That just tightens the noose around the guys neck even further giving the wife a chance to take what the man acquired before the marriage
  8. Mexico? I believe your post was stating that the crime rate in the US was higher than the Philippines Something that I dont believe for a second
  9. How many crimes actually get reported in the Philippines
  10. That was actually my Hispanic ex wifes daughter who has been to the least amount of classes. She was always at my house since she was a little girl because of her siblings Those two girls had harassed her for months saying racist stuff to her and she finally just lost it and when full blown beast mode on thier azz. The kicker was that they were harassing her because she was not full Hispanic blood and calling her a half breed and shit She came to live with me for 1 1/2 school years after that happened. proud of her. Got A's & B's, got a job at a beauty supply store that she has now had for 4 years and has her own apartment ----- good kid
  11. I have always taught my kids to never let anyone know they were in training. Only thier best of friends ever knew I always went on he theory that to be the man you got to beat the man and felt that if people knew they were in training that it would bring on unwanted attention
  12. How did your kids get through school without ever getting in a fight ? With all the bullying that goes on that just amazes me. My oldest 2 only got in a couple of fights but it still happened.
  13. Oh I do. I see a student driver sign on a car and I get on down the road
  14. All due respect Hyaku Do you tell your young student's parents that what you are teaching, In your opinion, Will not help them protect themselves if someone attacks them ? At what age do you feel that the training you provide will help someone defend themselves ? Just curious as to why you feel that training kids in MA is useless for self defense ?
  15. You say that until you get with a woman that dont drive and your the family taxi---- Did that shit for 10 years with my first wife-----drove me nuts
