Hello all wise chemistry people,
Thank you very much for taking the time to look at my post.
I know nothing about chemistry, and thought id come here to ask some questions.
A fertiliser plant lives right over the road from me. I have been sick for 2 years ever since moving here.
They process: superphosphate and gran-am
superphosphate is composed of: rock phosphate and sulfuric acid
gran-am is composed of: granulated ammonium sulfate
I have watched them process the fertiliser from my house and the powder disperses everywhere. all throughout the air and over to our house and another house that is around the corner right opposite it.
my questions are:
If this was happening to you, and you wanted to test for fertiliser contamination, what tests would you use to find out?
ammonia tests? phosphate tests? etc?
All our hinges and anything metal in our house rusts extremely quick, could this be why?
I have been sick and believe this could be a reason, do you think so?
What would you do in general?
Thank you very much... quite distressing and worried.. I am a 21 year old girl and I have had so many health issues and I really just dont understand what to do.
