Default Re: Organic food is no healthier, study finds???

Time honored way of fertilizing - when I lived in Japan in the 50's all that was carefully saved for the fields. Good deer deterent, too.

We have a friend here in our local town who has travelled in China on 3 or 4 bike riding holidays. Just a couple of years back he stopped off in one village to use the public toilet. He used the urinal and was curious as to where the outlet ran, as it was in a fairly remote area.

Outside there was a bamboo pipe conveing his pee straight out into a field of veggies.

Guess you would call this 'very organic" ?:
