JAMES MADISON QUOTE - 1822

"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Mad Cow Disease (BSE) 
"Disease-causing proteins can evade sewage treatment procedures."
"Prions, the infective particles behind diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), can breach standard sewage treatment methods, new research shows.The discovery raises the possibility that the rogue proteins, which are infamously hard to detect, can jump one of the most important barriers that safeguard human health."

FROM THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH, NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE
The bottom line is this, a failure to adequately and scientifically evaluate and assign an accurate risk factor to this dangerous practice. Deaths and sickness have occurred from sewage sludge application. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2094820/
