I'm very glad they pointed out not to use it in a food garden. You NEVER want to use carnivore excrement for garden compost: too many pathogens, and composting doesn't kill all of them.

I think the author is just being safe in the litigious environment.

I read one of the old Mother Earth news special edition on urban homesteading.

In it there was an article about processing "humanure".

Not as easy as composting garden scraps, but it is possible.

You have to get it to 190F and keep it there for several days IIRC.
