Hello,

I'm looking for information on options for handling human waste that doesn't incorporate the application of human sewerage sludge to land (agricultural fields etc.) as the runoff and other problems (cumulative heavy metal, POP additive effect, virus, vector, and unknown prion factor)pose considerable risk. Any information or studies regarding health or habitat problems and solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Regarding global health and climate change you may want to check out this months issue of Nature and go to the UW Madison at http://www.news.wisc.edu/newsphotos/climateChange.html for some graphics.
