This article was very, lets just say gagging to me! I found this in the YAHOO! news. In Philadelphia they had a truck that was holding more than 3,000 gallons of milk and was over turned. The people of PA was very concerned about the milk getting into the creek and then seeping into the soil. Scientist had made them aware that sprinkling lime onto the soil where the milk had spilled would chew up the milks fat lipids and neutralize the odor.
My first reaction when I seen the topic was "Oh, how disgusting!", but as I kept reading I found it very interesting that they could use lime to neutralize the odor.
Why I reacted this way? Well first of all, If you don't know me, well lets just say I am not a big fan of milk, but adding lime to it made it sound even more disgusting. And then as I kept reading, find out that their was infact no drinking to this I was relieved and fascinated at how they could prevent the odor and spoiling into the water and soil.
My conclusion is to this is, just because the topic sounds horrific, and does not sound appealing, do not assume its bad! Just like the old saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover". As well to my ending, I am wondering where they are gonna find that much lime peelings? Hmm...???
