Sewage plants are leaking millions of tiny plastic beads into Britain's seas | Environment | The Guardian
Sewage plants are contributing to plastic pollution in the oceans with millions of tiny beads spilling into the seas around the UK, according to a new report.

Dozens of UK wastewater treatment plants use tiny plastic pellets, known as Bio-Beads, to filter chemical and organic contaminants from sewage, according to a study from the Cornish Plastic Pollution Coalition (CPPC).

The report found that many millions of these pellets, which are only about 3.5mm wide, have been spilled and ended up in the environment.

The author of the report, Claire Wallerstein, said once the Bio-Beads had been released they are hard to spot and almost impossible to remove – yet can cause significant harm to marine wildlife. // Great Pacific Garbage Patch

EU finance ministers get tough with Italian bank trying for third bailout
EU rules forbid troubled Tuscan bank Monte dei Paschi from receiving state aid, but its collapse would cause a political crisis for prime minister Matteo Renzi [...] a move that would need Brussels to break new rules designed to prevent such taxpayer bailouts after the 2008 global financial crisis.

GMO in Fodder aka animal feed, livestock feed. and Fodder also can contain ground up meat waste from other animals (see “mad cow” disease instance). farmed fish eating ground up male chicken. Or in EU pig fodder (Schweinefutter) containing too high toxin called dioxin ( http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs225/en/ ). Or in other instance added hormones to fatten pigs quicker that show up in the meat and are thus hormones that people ingest unkowingly, low-dose long-time, ... // in a commercialised profit driven environment, nothing is wasted. NOTHING. If the consumer doesn't eat the ground up food waste, then its processed and added to Fodder. // Do you really know what you are eating?

Tyrone Hayes + Penelope Jagessar Chaffer: The toxic baby? - YouTube
Filmmaker Penelope Jagessar Chaffer was curious about the chemicals she was exposed to while pregnant: Could they affect her unborn child? So she asked scientist Tyrone Hayes to brief her on one he studied closely: atrazine, a herbicide used on corn. (Hayes, an expert on amphibians, is a critic of atrazine, which displays a disturbing effect on frog development.) Onstage together at TEDWomen, Hayes and Chaffer tell their story.
