WEF --  Sludge Incidents to debunk   
  THE EPA HAS GIVEN MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS TO THE WATER ENVIRONMENT FEDERATION
  (PUBLIC RELATIONS AND LOBBYING ARM OF THE WASTE INDUSTRY) TO PROMOTE SLUDGE SPREADING
  AND TO DEBUNK AND DISCREDIT SLUDGE VICTIMS AND SLUDGE OPPONENTS. THESE INCIDENTS ARE
   JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG - GATHERED BY GRASSROOTS NETWORKING.   THE EPA HAS REFUSED
   ALL FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUESTS TO RELEASE THE INFORMATION IT HAS ABOUT SLUDGE
  VICTIMS AND SLUDGE COMPLAINTS.

WEF -- ALAN HAIS, EPA SLUDGE PROGRAM MANAGER SAYS "BIOSOLIDS" IS A EUPHEMISM - FORMAL
   REGULATIONS STILL USE THE WORD "SLUDGE"

Water Environment Federation (WEF)        
     JUNE 6-8,2001 - SYMPOSIUM- WATER ENVIRONMENT FEDERATION - INNOVATIVE PROCESSES RE:
  BIOSOLIDS AND ANIMAL MANURES - "HEALTH ASPECTS AS RELATED TO MANURE AND BIOSOLIDS'' BY
  ELIOT EPSTEIN, Ph.D, E & A ENVIRONMENTAL CONSULTANTS, INC.
  
PLEASE NOTE OVER HALF OF DR. EPSTEIN'S SLIDES FOCUS ON HEALTH EFFECTS FROM BIOAEROSOLS
  AND ODORS

WEF -- Sam Hadeed
  -A NEW CHALLENGE . . . PERTAINS TO CONCERNS . . . THAT. . . ODORS FROM BIOSOLIDS . . . MAY BE
  POTENTIALLY CONTRIBUTING TO RESPIRATORY HEALTH SYMPTOMS. VULNERABLE POPULATIONS MAY
  POTENTIALLY INCLUDE INDIVIDUALS WITH ASTHMA AND IMMUNOSUPPRESSED CONDITIONS..."
  "FOR THESE SENSITIVE INDIVIDUALS, THE ISSUE IS WHETHER THE PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF
  UNPLEASANT ODORS FROM BIOSOLIDS ARE CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR PERSISTENT HEALTH SYMPTOMS
  AND/OR AGGRAVATING EXISTING MEDICAL CQND/TIONS."

WEF -- EPILOGUE -- The people sickened by the sludge plague are victims of germ warfare being waged
  against them by the waste industry and US EPA.  They are forcibly subjected to this biologically active
  infectious waste against their will. Sludge pollutants are trespassing into their air, land and water. ..
  indeed, right into their homes.

  Sludge victims are told by the public agencies who should be protecting them that they are hysterics,  
  hypochondriacs and their illnesses are "psychosomatic"   Victim after victim say that when they
  appealed to local, state and federal agencies for help, their pleas fell on deaf ears. "No one cared" ...
   "No one would listen",   "the EPA says it's safe so it can't be making you sick".
