It is the purpose of this chapter to furnish a background for understanding the indispensable nature of inorganic phosphates in life processes. If there were no phosphates, there would be no food for our food chain. It is self-evident that phosphates have been compatible with life for hundreds of millions of years. Their compatibility with life and life nurturing qualities make them ideal substances from which to manufacture fibers and other materials of commerce. We have no reasons to fear them.
