Nora Goldstein is the current editor of BioCycle Magazine, a major front publication for the sewage sludge industry. The magazine is published online and in print, and has offices in Emmaus, Pennsylvania.
The magazine was started by Jerome Goldstein, who was formerly a Rodale Press employee. BioCycle was originally published by Rodale Press, part of the Rodale Institute, and the current name of the publisher is "JG Press."
Jerome Goldstein's daughter, Nora Goldstein, is a prominent promoter of growing food in toxic sludge. In recent BioCycle articles, Goldstein has applauded the expansion of programs in which municipalities and regional sewage sludge treatment plants dry and package toxic sludge, subsequently marketing and selling it to consumers, disguised as "biosolids compost or as "organic" "compost."
Goldstein claimed in a December 2000 article that: "In a nutshell, beneficial use programs are holding their own. BioCycle’s 2000 survey of state biosolids coordinators found that almost half of the states reporting recycled more than half of the biosolids generated. Eight states — Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Oregon and Wyoming — beneficially use over 90 percent (with Indiana hitting the 100 percent mark). Biosolids quality appears to be improving. The onslaught of bans and ordinances restricting beneficial use seems to be abating."
