I'm sorry, folks, waste is called F E R T I L I Z E R out here. There is no E.Coli bacteria swimming around in the ground, sneaking into a root, climbing the stalk, and sitting there waiting inside that juicy tomato for you, all the while laughing evilly. mwa-ha-ha! The E.Coli and other bacteria die and are broken down by the soil into their individual pieces, which then get sucked up by the roots and turned into food. It's not like a jigsaw puzzle or a lego set; a human, a plant, or an animal is not just a building made of little chunks of the things they eat. Food is broken down into chemical components, no longer alive, before it can be used.
The dangers come from E.Coli and other bacteria/viruses getting into your digestive tract alive. Wash your hands before you pick the lettuce, then wash the lettuce. You'll be fine. If you're wiping your butt with one hand and and picking with the other, rotating every ten minutes, then you deserve to get sick, just so the evolutionists can be happy. That's where the dangerous stuff comes from, not from plants growing in 'contaminated' soil.
I know some of you are young, and you have these ideas on how to make things safer and better, but... take a look at what has been known and successfully used for the last couple of centuries, then figure out how to make it better. Don't listen to those idiots on the 6 O'clock news; they're just there for the paycheck. [/rant]
You are correct, some of us are "younger" and we are just trying to make this world a better place. This is my contribution for today.
Please keep in mind that E- coli is mutating constantly as well, and it currently IS a problem, and can only get worse.

i'd like to point out a related item...but a not so direct link to potential contaminations that don't show up till its too late.
It seems that a chemical giant sells a herbicide having Aminopyralid in it.... farmers use it on their grazing pastures that the animals use.
Well, the animals eat the grass
and their manure which is turned into commercial fertilizer and sold to the public has been found to be the cause of rotton potatoes, wilted salads, and deformed tomatoes over in the UK...
because the toxic herbicide that was tinctured by the rain & soil, then filtered through the vegetation, then processed through the bovines' stomachs & intestines, further sterilized through the commercial fertilizer process- which was marketed to the unsuspecting part-time/casual gardner !
Lesson: even the beneficial microbes and bacteria agents one puts into a septic maintenance process may be harmful, but as yet undiscovered.
i learned of this 'Aminopyralid' agent from this source www.opednews.com...
and by extension it may be appropriate for this thread,,,,
nature is a seperate system from the man-made agri-business system,
and i'd be leery of theinteraction between them both & particularly the intrusive-for-profit agri-business models that lull one to think everythings OK afterall.
