Glyphosphate (Weed Killer) - Why I will never use it again
I have never loved using chemicals in my yard. I avoid it as much as possible. However, I do admit to using Roundup in the past to destroy poison ivy and the occasional weed in a hard to reach place.
I am now officially and publicly stating that I will no longer be using this chemical for any reason, ever again. Here is why:
The World Health Organization (WHO) has established that glyphosphate (weed killers such as Roundup) is a carcinogen with links to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (cancer). Please share this info with others. Link to WHO document: http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/iarcnews/pdf/MonographVolume112.pdf
