Sludge Diet (Tabou(e)!) (2006)
Some call it poison others hail it as environmentally friendly. Who’s telling us the truth about Fertile Residual Material (FRM) aka sludge and who’s lying? The foods that we eat are mostly produced on land fertilized by digester sludge containing dangerous substances. The consequences have been disastrous so far and most feel that governments need to ban its usage instead of regulating it.
The continued use of sewage sludge in agriculture and regulating its use to prevent harmful effects on soil, vegetation, animals and man – is an ongoing debate.
