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 […]

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 […]

Wastewater Treatment Plants Spreading Prion Disease Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Meanwhile, death rates from most major diseases are dropping. Why the divergence? Unfortunately, a pathogen associated with neurodegenerative disease is spreading uncontrollably. Research suggests that food and water supplies around the world have been contaminated with an unstoppable […]

Humans Transmitting Prion Disease To Sea Mammals 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 […]

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 […]

Alzheimer’s An Infectious Disease 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 of brain disease will quadruple by 2050, if not sooner. Death rates from heart disease and cancer are dropping globally […]

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 Spreading Prions More than 50 million people around the world have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. It’s the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Alzheimer’s disease is a member of an unstoppable family of neurodegenerative diseases known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is “transmissible.” Related diseases are killing wildlife and livestock […]
