Biosolids Spreading Brain Disease By Patrick Durkin Those who think Wisconsin should just “learn to live” with chronic wasting disease are seeing their surrender take shape as “nature takes its course” on our deer herd. In fact, folks near Spring Green are living the realities of such clichés. One farmer in the Wyoming valley of

The couple was en route back to Shelby from a car show in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., in September. She described his driving as erratic. “He was all over the

Deadly Prion Proteins Survive Wastewater Treatment Process By Michael Woods Scientists in Wisconsin are reporting in a paper scheduled for the July 1 issue of ACS’ Environmental Science & Technology that typical wastewater treatment processes do not degrade prions. Prions, rogue proteins that cause incurable brain infections such as Mad Cow disease and its human equivalent,

Sewage Sludge Expands Prion Pathways Soil may serve as an environmental reservoir for prion infectivity and contribute to the horizontal transmission of prion diseases (transmissible spongiform encephalopathies [TSEs]) of sheep, deer, and elk. TSE infectivity can persist in soil for years, and we previously demonstrated that the disease-associated form of the prion protein binds to soil

Prions Unstoppable In Sewage Sludge, Reclaimed Wastewater When Alice Cho Snyder and her husband Mark bought a 13-acre farm near Everett, Wash., last July, they thought they were going to be organic farmers, not the epicenter of a biosolids storm. Shortly after the Snyders closed on the property, Snohomish County officials notified the couple that

Biosolids Spreading Brain Disease Colm Kelleher, the author of Brain Trust: The Hidden Connection Between Mad Cow Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease is a fascinating book that covers al lot of ground quickly. It connects many dots about deadly prion diseases. One pathway that he doesn’t mention is sewage sludge, which exposes livestock, wildlife and humans to
