The taboo secret to better health

Our poop and pee have superpowers, but for the most part we don't harness them. Molly Winter faces down our squeamishness and asks us to see what goes down the toilet as a resource, one that can help fight climate change, spur innovation and even save us money.
Find out where your water comes from and where your poop and pee go. Are you connected to a sewer? Contact your local treatment plant. Ask where the biosolids (sewage and sludge) and treated effluent goes. Are you on a septic system? Pull up a groundwater map for your area, findable either through a local county extension service or through USGS.
