    Yes, they 'try ' to tell us all sorts of things these days. From first hand experience I no longer use roundup, not only does it hurt my liver, it also scares all the earthworms away. I guess the worms are smarter than most people? My doctor can look at my bloodwork and tell if I've been using roundup.

    And for some further reading:

    And a nice short clip featuring an industry lobbyist refusing to drink his own coolaid. :)



    Once to researching this kind of thing you'll soon discover the revolving door between the corp0orations and the government agencies that pass the approvals (among other things). :)

    Have you used Roundup quite a lot?

    I use it sometimes to weed pathways etc but I'll definitely be taking more precautions now before using any glyphosate herbicide. It still astounds me how it is used in the food industry to kill of crops before harvest! That's awful!

    Good info BTW and a good video also.

    I have used it in the past a lot. Great for killing thistles in the paddocks. But not for a few years now. :)

    (And yeah The Corbett Report is a great source of alternative news, James is the thinking persons Alex Jones. :) )

    I may have to reference his website to some of my own work...

    So what would you use now then instead of Roundup? Vinegar?

    I wonder if the discriminate weed killers are the same?

    Doesn't take too much time and no nasty side-effects. :)
