    Even though we all live on land, and have concerns about direct glyphosate effects on our health, this is an ocean planet.

    It all runs downstream into the oceans, and our oceans are under ever-increasing pressure.

    This is a science paper https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0151633

    You can search your own opinion pieces, I wouldn’t post them for obvious reasons.

    i'm not sure. Ag workers appling pesticides must be a licensed applicator or working under the supervision of one. They will be wearing correct PPE, and following mixing instructions.

    Homeowners are often seen spraying in shorts and a tee shirt. Then there are the guys saying "it didn't work very well last time so I doubled the mix this time".

    In all seriousness, I would NEVER use it on lawn anymore. I don't even fertilize my lawn full of weeds. YMMV, but when the kids were younger, I wouldn't use it, and now with the dog out all day, no way I'm using it ever again.

    I'm familiar with that. But don't confuse aggressive marketing and corporate aggression with scientific evidence.

    In some ways it's necessary because anti-corporate "hit squads" exist to do the opposite. Dishonesty in science is prevelent and it isn't just companies driving that.

    Real evidence that RoundUp poses a unique public health risk is very thin gruel. Blood is in the water, though, so it's too late for that to matter.
