New Information Concerning Roundup! – Updated w/part III

18 Jan New Information Concerning Roundup! – Updated w/part III

We have talked of the toxic nature of lawn chemicals here on the Blue Heron Blog before, and we have cautioned against the use of Roundup (a non-specific weed killer). Today over on the Safelawns.org blog Paul Tukey is starting a three piece article on Roundup. Please visit and read, and then reconsider using this dangerous chemical.

Roundup, Part I: “A Very Serious Poison”

Roundup, Part II: “Act Now to Stop Genetically Modified Alfalfa”

Roundup, Part III: “Mankind’s Greatest Mistake”

    I love Tukey’s blog for this type of info. So glad somebody’s keeping an eye on this stuff for us. A lot of prominent bloggers seem to think that if RoundUp is used sparingly, that it is safe, not even mentioning the damage it causes to wildlife/ amphibians. But I disagree. I’d feel like a cad if I killed the little frogs and salamanders around my garden, and I don’t believe it is safe, based on studies I have read that were not funded by Monsanto.

      Amen Gen! I feel the same way when we come across a woodland friend, and we manage to relocate instead of destroy.
