Reforms Can Save Lives Neurodegenerative disease and autism have been surging around the world for the past 30 years. A man-made disaster is creating a public health disaster that’s still unfolding. Neurotoxins are driving the epidemic more than age–in some countries more than others. Teenagers are now dying of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease–the most severe form of brain wasting […]

Few Mammals Immune To Transmissible Brain Disease Italian and Algerian researchers released new evidence of prion disease in three dromedary camels found in an Algerian slaughterhouse, according to a new study in Emerging Infectious Diseases. The discovery, now being called camel prion disease (CPD), has raised more questions than answers about this deadly illness characterized […]

Prion Disease Surging Neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Misinformation and mismanagement are contributing to the surge. Alzheimer’s disease alone is killing 50-100 million people now. Experts suggest that the prevalence will quadruple by 2050. It probably won’t take that long. Death rates from heart disease and cancer are dropping globally due to […]

Chronic Wasting Disease and Infectious Waste Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are collectively becoming the leading cause of death around the world. Brain disease also continues to expand in wildlife. Is there a connection? Keep reading to find out why: Alzheimer’s disease is an infectious prion disease; Prion infectivity is in the […]

Biosolids and Brain Disease In 1972, world leaders realized that dumping millions of tons of sewage sludge into the oceans killed entire underwater ecosystems. Some nations stopped the dumping immediately, while others did not. The U.S., for example, finally passed the Ocean Dumping Ban Act of 1988. It required dumping all municipal sewage sludge and industrial […]

Sewage Sludge Spreading Disease By Jim Bynum Editor’s Note:  This article was researched and written by Jim Bynum, a devoted patriot determined to protect our air, water and food supplies from reckless waste disposal policies. This alarming report was published in 1992. The EPA, in its infinite wisdom, relied on fraudulent science, collusion and corruption […]

Sewage Sludge Contaminating Watershed Residents of Canada’s Nicola Valley have said that something stinks about biosolids dumped near homes, rivers, aquifers and crops in their region. They set up roadblocks to stop the practice. A powerful new report backs them up. John Werring, Senior Science Advisor with the environmental group, The Suzuki Foundation, recently came to the […]

Humans Transmitting Prion Disease To Whales Sick animals and sick people can tell us a lot about the health of our environment. A study in Denmark is raising red flags about prion contamination. There could be a common thread between between the neurodegenerative disease and infectious waste. The whales are serving as canaries in a […]

Sewage Sludge Spreading Brain Disease Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is ravaging wildlife in many regions across North America. It’s part of a larger epidemic of neurological disease that is killing millions of people, wildlife and livestock around the world. Once again, wildlife are serving as the proverbial canary in a coal mine. CWD is part of […]

Sewage Spreading Prion Disease A new study confirms that people and animals dying of prion disease are contaminating the environment around them with a deadly and unstoppable protein found in their bodily fluids, including their urine and feces. Wastewater treatment plants can’t neutralize the deadly form of protein known as a prion. Claudio Soto, PhD, […]

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 deadly form of the prion protein binds to soil […]

Infectious Waste and Prion Disease I wish that I could support wastewater reclamation and the application of sewage sludge (biosolids) on open land. Unfortunately, I have reversed course on my position over the past decade and now I only see unacceptable risks. The reason for my reversal is an unstoppable, deadly protein particle called a prion.
