Sourcewatch Portal : Toxic Sludge 
SourceWatch clearinghouse on toxic sewage sludge issues maintained by the Food Rights Network.
Sally Brown is a research associate professor at the University of Washington. Her column in the March 2011 issue attacks as "ecoterrorists" the Organic Consumers Association and others who led the successful movement that on March 4, 2010 stopped the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission from giving away sewage sludge as “organic biosolids compost” for home and school gardens. Sally Brown wrote: “Here, six ecoterrorists have the City of San Francisco quaking in its boots, leading officials to stop a compost giveaway program that was making hundreds happy." Climate Change Connections: "Compost Security." Brown, Sally, BioCycle Magazine, March 2011.
Brown advocates growing food in sewage sludge which she calls by its PR euphemism biosolids. Her sludge promotional campaign has included feeding the public food grown in Seattle's own sewage sludge) "compost" product called GroCo 

CWMI has compiled this matrix that includes information on the reported health incidents that citizens associate with the application of sewage sludges to land.  The matrix includes the locations, the number of persons and the symptoms reported.  It has not been confirmed by scientific investigation that these persons became ill due to land application of sludges.  A wide array of sources provided the information contained in this matrix including newspaper articles, government reports and other sources.  We hope that the information may be useful to the full range of stakeholders concerned about the reported illnesses.  CWMI invites those with additional information on these or other incidents to send it to us at cwmi@cornell.edu.
