Default Compost - Blood And Bone Meal To "Activate"?


.........In other words, it is believed that
neither heat nor solvents kill prions, AFAIK.

I agree Pat. For one thing, you can't kill what isn't alive. Prions are
abnormal protein fragments, not living organisms. I'm still amazed that
such a thing can cause such awful diseases. (Other animals have their
own version of prion caused disease.) I just hope those diseases remain
at least as uncommon as they are now. Wishful thinking.
