Naturstyrelsen tvang forskere til at slette tre afgørende afsnit i et notat om kobberforgiftning.

Smågrise får store mængder kobbersulfat i foder for at øge tilvækst og begrænse diarré. Kobber er også tilsat i sliksten, som den øverst i billedet. Kobberet kommer via gylle på markerne og kan optages af vildtet. Continue Reading →
