Beyond the Body
   In this old food chain model, food wastes were something that just disappeared forever in a flush with a push of a button. But the ghosts of our previous ignorance are coming back to haunt society, both as personal illnesses as well as environmental illnesses. The journey of our food wastes both organic and inorganic, coming from production processes as well as human by-products is now, quite rightly, becoming the focus of much attention.
   Many people are now concerned about water quality falling from the sky, coming out of the taps, going down the drains, into the rivers and out into the sea. Even many conventional (i.e. non organic) farmers are getting concerned for the condition of the soils. In our particular river valley, I know farmers who have moved off the land because "things just aren't growing as well anymore". Their

soils (and their spirits) are tired. Depletion of trace minerals, disturbances in soil biology, fertiliser accumulation, toxic sprays getting into the food chain, rampant weed infestations, depletion of natural predators, degradation of protective vegetation are all the results of man's naive and exploitative past. Repairing this damage is indeed a worth causes for everyone to become involved in - not only by working through political channels, but also by individually demonstrating better awareness in shopping and eating habits. The previous ignorance and mismanagement of human wastes are now being investigated and changed for the better. Just by initiating a new phase of better eating and expanding your understanding of your own part in the drastic situation, you will be starting to help clean up both the personal and the planetary pollution
