Rock Phosphate KEY To Our Destruction

Phosphorus, P, exists in 3 allotropic forms, red, white and black. Red and white are more common.(Nuggets of Information) Both red and white P are poly-atomic and are 4 P atoms that form a tetrahedron. (Fig.3) White phosphorus reacts vigorously with oxygen and the reaction results in a popping sound that is similar to a dog barking. Phosphorus pentoxide is formed during the oxidation process (Ref.4):

P4 + 5O2 → 2P2O5

The chemical behavior of phosphorus is interesting because as a non-metal it exhibits ionic and covalent bonding depending on where it is present. It is an important element in complex organic compounds like ATP, (adenosine tri-phophate) as well as in simpler molecules like phosphoric acid ,H3PO4, oxides of phosphorus, or as a phosphate, PO43- in an inorganic compound. ATP is an energy-bearing molecule present in all living organisms. (Ref.5)(Fig.3)(Nuggets of Information)

The most common use of phosphorus is in the manufacture of fertilizers. It is also used in the production of steel and was used extensively in the manufacture of detergents, though lately phosphate-free detergents are more prevalent. This is because the phosphates that leached into water bodies affected it adversely.

There is much talk about peak phosphorus today. This means that our demand is exceeding the supply of phosphorus. In 2008, the world was shocked by an 800% increase in the price of phosphorus. Several factors including world reserves, agricultural practices using excessive amounts of manufactured phosphates have played a role in this shortage. As a society, we need to be cognizant of these problems and figure out ways to counteract the decrease in phosphorus. (Nuggets of Information)(Ref. 6)

Science makes Sense, Week 17: Phosphorus, fertilizers, ATP , LEDs , phossy jaw and wars.

"Phossy Jaw"...I had this by sleeping in a room attached to a green house...I went  to 2 doctors to get help, and neither would believe or listen ...to what caused my intense pain, and disability...
Not being able to use my mouth, eat, terrible pain, could barely even talk tongue all swollen, and ulcers in my mouth...
"in the case of my jaw a centipede poison pellet system was put in a badly ventilated green house, under the open floor boards of the hall, on the other side of the wall and hall outside my unventilated bedroom. Within 1 week of moving to another home...My jaw and mouth were perfectly fine."

I really could have lost my jaw, and parts of my mouth by this attitude of...
"Pesticides do not harm people."
They are hiding pesticide injury on purpose...WHY!!!
To make money...

The commodity phosphorus is being used up...Will that be the end of pesticides, and chemical fertilizers...are they done taking their profits in the Commodity Exchanges, and Stock Markets?
 Aquifers across the US are being found to have radioactivity in them...

The study reports that 78 percent of the uranium-contaminated sites were linked to the presence of nitrate, a common groundwater contaminant that originates mainly from chemical fertilizers and animal waste. Nitrate mobilizes naturally occurring uranium through a series of bacterial and chemical reactions that oxidize the radioactive mineral, making it soluble in groundwater.
The High Plains aquifer -- the largest in the United States -- provides drinking water and irrigation for an eight-state swath that stretches from South Dakota through Nebraska and into northern Texas. As California's largest reservoir, the Central Valley aquifer sits beneath some of the state's most fertile agricultural land. According to a 2012 census from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the two aquifers irrigate cropland that accounts for one-sixth of the annual revenue generated by U.S. agriculture....
UNL researchers Karrie Weber and Jason Nolan found that the High Plains aquifer contains uranium concentrations up to 89 times the EPA standard and nitrate concentrations up to 189 times greater. The uranium and nitrate levels of the California-based Central Valley aquifer measured up to 180 and 34 times their respective EPA thresholds.
