To recover from our most grotesque outcomes of industrialization, her help is needed. Critical help. Her प्रसाद is गंगा स्वरुप. She can wash our sins selflessly. Our crimes of polluting जल,वायु & जमीन.

All this is possible if we save and protect her. Time is running fast. If she is not protected as early as possible, recovery from possible collapse would be much slower than expected.

Bioremediation of Pharmaceuticals, Pesticides, and Petrochemicals with Gomeya/Cow Dung

https://www.hindawi.com/journals/isrn/2011/362459/

Use and misuse of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and petrochemicals by man is causing havoc with nature, as they persist as such or as their toxic metabolites. These pollutants bioaccumulate in environment, and they ultimately reach man through various means. They are hazardous because of potential toxicity, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and genotoxicity. To rejuvenate nature, remediation methods currently available are usually expensive and might convert one toxic pollutant to another. Bioremediation methods use naturally occurring microorganisms to detoxify man-made pollutants so that they change pollutants to innocuous products that make soil fertile in the process. Taking cue from Ayurveda, Gomeya/cow dung is used as an excellent bioremediation method. Thus, utilizing freely available cow dung as slurry or after composting in rural areas, is a cheap and effective measure to bioremediate the harmful pollutants. Yet, more research in this direction is warranted to bioremediate nonbiodegradable, potentially toxic pollutants.

What is Bioremediation?

Bioremediation is the use of naturally occurring microorganisms or genetically engineered microorganisms (bacteria and fungi) by man, to detoxify man-made pollutants [22]. Earthworms are capable of bioaccumulating heavy metals in their body tissues especially chloragocytes, and their intestinal microflora has the capacity to detoxify most of the pesticides. Earthworms are good additions to enhance the activity of natural and cheap composts to detoxify the environment. Microorganisms have a unique ability to interact both chemically and physically with a huge range of both man-made and naturally occurring compounds leading to a structural change to, or the complete degradation of the, target molecule.

3.1. Vedic Literature

Ayurveda is one of the life sciences of the Vedic Indian period. Panchgavya Chikitsa is a part of Ayurveda (i.e., therapy with cow products, namely, milk, curd, clarified butter, urine, and dung). It is one of the main principles is that the world is made up of a combination of the five basic elements—ether, earth, air, water, and fire with a harmonious blend in the human body, flora, and fauna alike.

Susruta (one of the pioneers of Ayurveda) mentions that the human body is made up of these five basic elements in a delicate balance—Asimnchhaste panchmahabhut sharire samvaiym purusheh etyuchyte.22 (Sushruta Samhita 1 [23])

Susruta also says that when this delicate harmonious balance is interfered with, there would be disease in the world. Bhutebhyo hi param kinchinnasti chinta chikitsite.8 (Sushruta Samhita 1 [23])

Nature has made various natural mechanisms by which all waste are biodegraded naturally leaving no toxins in the environment, thus they do not harm the environment in any manner.

4. Gomeya/Cow Dung

According to Ayurveda, Gomeya/cow dung is not a waste product, but it is a purifier of all wastes in the nature [24]. When spread over urban and rural waste in solution form (1:10–1:25 solution), it biodegrades the waste in time. It is a “gold mine” due its wide applications in the field of agriculture, energy resource, environmental protection, and therapeutic applications.

Cow dung is a cheap and easily available rich source of microflora. Though cow dung has been used in several studies, but the breed of cow has not been mentioned. As per Indian Vedic scriptures, cow dung obtained from Indian indigenous cow/Bos indicus/Zebu breed is better than that of other newer breeds. Ideally, the source of cow dung as per Ayurveda should be from a healthy Zebu cow, fed upon healthy diet of pastures including various natural herbs and which has been reared hygienically.

Shranivartan vrtya ne nivartan vrtya Bhumyachshrtrsm prdishstabhyam ena ne vrtya (Rigveda 10, 19, 8 [25])

Rigveda advises man to let the cows graze freely in the meadows in all the four directions everyday without any restrictions.

8. Conclusion

Taking cue from Ayurveda, Gomeya/cow dung acts as an excellent bioremediation method. It is cheap, a economically viable option and is locally available in the rural areas of India. Much more exhaustive studies are required to bioremediate the active pharmaceutical agents especially the ones which are nonbiodegradable and persistors in nature. Thus, the adverse effects of these chemicals on flora and fauna can be minimized for a healthy and safe future. These effects can be further studied and validated as per modern research methodology.

Prana : Dung manure Vs chemical fertilizer

Fertilizer

Difference between manure and chemical fertilizer is as simple as you eat raw grains and cooked rice-dal.

Try eating raw rice dal for some time and observe struggle of your stomach. Do one thing: First eat 10 gm of weekly salt. Then eat 10 gm of each spices. And then some raw vegetables for next day. And third day, uncooked rice. And so on…good meals, right? Try it and see how much stress your digestive track gets.

Same goes with plants when they are treated with raw chemicals as nutrients. This negatively impact their health by two ways

1) Lack of nutrition , Lack of prana, bad health, rapid ageing. By the time they come to your plate, they are dead food. Difficult to digest with no benefits.
2) Lack of prana triggers decay event so mother nature will manage cleaning staff i.e. bacteria. Attack of micro-lives who gather to eat dead chemicals. So pesticides as response and vicious circle goes on.

On the other hand, manure as a fertilizer and cow-urine, cow-butter milk as a pest control, are outcomes from natural/manual churning process. Full of prana. Digestible food. Friendly food. Cooked food. Food that soil loves. Food that bacteria loves.

Digestible (Churned at least once in animal’s digestive system) vs difficult to digest (Raw material)

Full of prana (Treated by animals and humans – high at prana shakti) vs lack of prana (Treated by machines i.e. entities low at prana shakti)

Selection of manure depends upon what plants love to eat. Most plants love Cow-manure in daily food. Do we provide? Well, we are living in critical manure-famine era. There are not enough mother cows to provide enough manure for all plants across all farms of the Nation.

Unless we stop vacuous slaughter of mother, this problem will remain unsolved.

Toyota to build power plant based on cow manure, India? Slaughter hub and meat exporter!

Smart energy

When your leaders are  not aligned with real potential of cattle, they prepare for mass destruction by promoting cow slaughter and beef export.

There is a great potential in cow-dung. We have discussed  many time the value of cow dung in sustainable economy. From food production to energy, mother cow is really Kamadhenu!

Japanese automobile giant Toyota is making some exciting moves in the realm of renewable, clean energy. They realized the value of manure and taking bold steps. Unlike present Indian companies and govt.

I hope Indian govt realize the realize untapped potential of cow dung and invest heavily in it instead of wasting same money behind toxic electric batteries production.

Toyota’s New Power Plant Will Create Clean Energy from Manure

 

Toyota plans to build a power plant in California that captures methane gas from dairy cattle manure to generate water, electricity and hydrogen.

“We understand the tremendous potential to reduce emissions and improve society,” said Doug Murtha, Toyota’s North America group vice president for strategic planning.

The company announced the project Thursday at the Los Angeles auto show. The Tri-Gen Project at the Port of Long Beach, Calif., will be the world’s first commercial-scale 100% renewable power and hydrogen generation plant. Toyota is betting heavily on fuel-cell technology, especially in Japan.

When it comes online around 2020, Tri-Gen will produce enough energy to power the equivalent of about 2,350 average-sized homes and meet the daily driving needs of nearly 1,500 vehicles — approximately 2.35 megawatts of electricity and 1.2 tons of hydrogen per day, according to Toyota.

In addition, the hydrogen fueling station will support the automaker’s operations at the port.

“Tri-Gen is a major step forward for sustainable mobility and a key accomplishment of our 2050 environmental challenge to achieve net zero CO2 emissions from our operations,” Murtha said.

Cow-Dung(Gomeya) as Bioremediation

Cowdung

Use and misuse of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and petrochemicals by man is causing havoc with nature. They are hazardous because of potential toxicity, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and genotoxicity.

Honest chemists, farmers and doctors know about this but only handful of them dare to go against the trend.

If you know any of such genuine chemist, farmer or doctor, ask them to connect with Gau shala. Only gau mata has power to rejuvenate nature quickly, effectively and long lastingly free of cost.

Gomeya/cow dung is used as an excellent bioremediation method. Thus, utilizing freely available cow dung as slurry or after composting in rural areas, is a cheap and effective measure to bioremediate the harmful pollutants.

Same dung is excellent medicine and can act as harmless, zero side effect anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, anti-blood pressure medicine.

And if you have any contact with present Govt’s policy makers, give them some lights. They are acting like a moron and want Americanization of healthcare. Stop them now or be ready face dire consequences.

Bioremediation of Soil Contaminated with Tannery Effluent by Combined Treatment with Cow Dung and Microorganisms Isolated from Tannery Effluent

Bioremediation potential of a combination of cow dung and a microbial consortium (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Penicillium chrysogenum and Aspergillus niger) in soil contaminated with tannery effluent, was investigated in the laboratory. Concentrations of phenol, sulphide and ammonium nitrogen in contaminated soil, were significantly reduced (P=0.000) to permissible levels after treatment with microbial consortium, cow dung or combination of microbial consortium and cow dung. Reduction of these compounds was best with combination of microbial consortium and cow dung. Cr (VI) level (139.2 mg/kg) was significantly reduced (P=0.000-0.050) by 33.2, 96.9 and 99.9% after treatment with microbial consortium, cow dung, and combination of consortium and cow dung, respectively. The treatments elevated soil pH from 5.8 to 6.9-7.2. Growth of maize in soil treated with the combination of microbial consortium and cow dung was not significantly different from growth in uncontaminated soil. Cr (VI) concentrations in the maize tissues were very low (0.002-0.006 mg/g). Thus combination of microbial consortium and cow dung may have potential application in bioremediation of soil polluted by tannery wastes.
