Joseph Jenkins convinces the reader how ignorant we've all been for far too long. He explains how the compost is completely safe to use on vegetables, even if the waste originally had parasites and heavy metals. Thermophillic composting appears to break everything down.
I couldn't recommend reading this enough.
I'll be now lending this book to my dad who is a fecophobe in its truest traditional form!
Next job. Build a compost toilet system!
The style is gently humorous (what else could it be?) so the vast amount of information is easy reading.
Thank heavens there are people like Joseph Jenkins who are prepared to do the research and get it out in the public domain.
Check out this book on the Amazon.com site. You can look inside the book there and note that it has 75 five star ratings!!
