An interesting article recently appeared in a local newspaper suggesting 
that hormones or antibiotics etc. fed to animals might be excreted with 
their manure and subsequently taken up in vegetables if it is used as a 
fertiliser. Is there any evidence for this claim? PLease email responses 
to kennjo at 

Many thanks, John Kennedy
