Poo.

Wednesday Breakfast News Scoop! Human poo being used (after specialised treatment) to make fertiliser for farmers fields. I don't think that this is such a big issue, apart from the fact that most mega-supermarket chains still have a ban on the use of re-processed human faeces being used to assist in the growth of their veggies.

That is - with the exception of Sainsuburys.

Sainsbury's has no such ban. A spokesman said: “We have not got a ban or policy on it. We have hundreds of suppliers and I could not say who does and who doesn't. What I can say is that all our suppliers would follow the strict guidelines laid down by Defra.”

So - all of you who use Sainsburys for your weekly shop - be aware, you could have actually shat on those carrots your eyeing up.

Not a new idea. When we had an allotment in the 1940s, we used a fertilizer known as "Surbiton", a by product of the sewage works at that esteemed place.

Have you (not aimed at you Billy!) eaten any 'organic' or even bog standard food imported from Spain? If so, I've got some breaking news for you...........!


Stinks of (human, animal, they don't care!) shit, doesn't it! You simply cannot believe the smell if you are unlucky enough to drive by the fields when Pedro is fertilizing!

Not so many years ago I was visiting a friends farm. He was out in the fields supervising a SWW sewage tanker drilling in and burying sewage. Treated ,of course ! When walking on the field afterwards it was like walking on a bog, all squishy.:blob6:

They have been doing in Europe (Germany in particular) for years. During my time in Wildenrath they always told us to scrub and wash any veg bought.

Back in the 50s/60s my Grandparents had a farm in rural Herefordshire. The bog was an "up the garden" model, just a shed with a thunderbox containing an Elsan bucket. When the bucket was full Grandad would empty it in a trench alongside his runner beans. Said beans grew to an enormous size and tasted delicious. That must be recycling in it's purest form!
