1,000 Acres of peanut fields destroyed in Tift County, Georgia!

There were about 1,000 acres of peanut crops that were wiped out by "Lime Plus" that was found to be laced with cadmium, chromium, lead and zinc from the steel industry. I am not lying either. The farmers tried to keep it quiet because they didn't want to alarm the public but it was discovered by Professor Jessica Davis who tested the soil after the crops died. It ended up as a "super fund" costing about $10,000,000 to clean it all up.

It would have cost the steel companies around $2,000 a ton to dispose of it, but they sold it instead to SoGreen corporation who turned around and re-sold it to farmers. It is a fact look it up!
