I have a right to be concerned about the Toxic Chemicals being used near my garden. My friend, ex TEACHER, has done a lot of research into the danger of using weed killers:
MOST WIDELY USED PESTICIDE
Glyphosate is a weed killer, or herbicide. It is the most extensively used pesticides in the world today for both residential and agricultural purposes. Human exposure to glyphosate is widespread.
We recommend avoiding glyphosate-based herbicides due to the mounting safety concerns outlined below.
HOW ARE WE EXPOSED?
INHALATION & INGESTION
Glyphosate can be inhaled or ingested when it is applied to lawns and gardens. After application, we come into contact with glyphosate through plants, soil, air, and food.
Glyphosate used on lawns and in parks can be tracked into our homes on shoes or strollers that have had contact with glyphosate treated surfaces. Residues of glyphosate are detected on some produce as well as in processed foods.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH RISKS?
CANCER, HORMONE DISRUPTION, BIRTH DEFECTS, NERVOUS SYSTEM TOXICITY,
Studies suggest a number of health risks associated with exposure to glyphosate. Children and fetuses are most vulnerable to pesticide exposures due to their developing organ systems and differences in the way they metabolize toxins.
In addition, developmentally normal hand-to-mouth behavior, close proximity to the ground where pesticides settle, and high respiratory rates result in higher exposures in children compared with adults.
MY DAUGHTER HAS ASTHMA AND HAS TO USE INHALERS. BUT HER HEALTH IS BETTER THAN IT USED TO BE. HER PEAK FLOW HAS GONE UP, SINCE GIVING HER MORE FRUIT AND VEG, AND JAPANESE KNOTWEED WATER (CHEMICAL FREE).
Most British people are not educated about chemicals destroying the body. My friend, ex Nurse, warned me about the dangers of Asthma Inhalers. I was in very bad health when I met her. Thanks to her and Home Education, Google took me on an amazing HEALTH journey. I not only managed to loose 2 half stone in weight. But I cured all my health problems, by getting rid of the chemical foods I used to eat. And using plants to heal my body. Americans are far more educated about Health than we are here in the UK!
LOVE YOU GOOGLE!
