Why are the FDA and CDC withholding the truth about the source of the
cyclospora pathogen which HAS SICKENED OVER 500 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 and
to grow vegetables 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.
