"Cyclospora is a single-celled parasite often associated with contaminated fresh produce". Thank goodness I have the opportunity to grow and trade my own. Thank you.

flagged spam...I'm with you SuSanne. Although I can't grow my own, I'm very careful about the produce/cleaning that I buy. Peel outer layers; scrub/wash/soak the rest...Don't like to eat out! The fast food idea gives me the shivers...even coffee.

Why are the FDA and CDC withholding the truth about the source of the cyclospora pathogen which is sickening hundreds of people across the US? The FDA AND CDC KNOW cyclospora originates in human feces and can be spread in sewage sludge biosolids used for crop "fertilizer" and reclaimed sewage effluent water used for crop "irrigation". The US EPA promotes the use of sludge biosolids and tainted irrigation water for farming to enable big cities and urban areas to dump their toxic, pathogenic wastes in Rural America "on the cheap" -and that is why the truth is being covered up.
