Glyphosate is a known carcinogen, dangerous to kids and pets. Considering all the protesting about enviromental issues and how green our Government want us to be it`s hypocritical to continue to allow poisoning of said enviroment with glyphosate weedkillers!! They should be banned. It costs nothing to pull out the weeds.

There us plenty of studies in regards to that, sadly the manufacturers do everything not to make a public aware. Their own big part of social media, tv and Wikipedia. People that are genuinely interested will look at it more closely, others will believe whatever some funded studies show. Glyphosate is a contaminant and formaldehyde is actually listed as an ingredient in the vaccines insert. Wake up or follow the ship. Up to you.


Suggest you read the NHS comments on vaccine ingredients, including formaldehyde. You are posting Ill-informed fear mongering drivel. Conspiracy theories, insults and a desperate need to claim you understand something that doesn't stand up to scientific criticism.

I do love muting anti-vaxers.

Not to mention that glyphosate is an ingredient in most of the vaccines and that would explain the raise of cancer in the young population. White vinegar works for weeds too, you're right. This should be banned.
Keep away from Glyphosate’s for the sake of your families deadly stuff.
Wouldn't use it even if it was free!

Thanks for white vinegar tip.
Will try that...
Or use the stuff how it's stated on the label and it won't get anywhere near anyone to do them any harm?!.....

Also, who classifies it as a carcinogen?

Yes seriously, where is it classified as a carcinogen?
What’s more dangerous, this or bacon
Surly if it was that dangerous then all of the big retailers would of stopped selling it.

It's been classified cancirogenic by the toxicologist ages ago. The Roundap manufacturers have just been ordered by the court to pay 2bn dollars compensation. Apart from the fact is killing a weeds, it kills bees as well and when there's no bees there's no food. So yes, its been proven loads of times that it causes cancer and this is just the latest compensation payout. Not sure if you're willing to learn or you just ask sarcastically to prove anyone wrong?

That would be if we lived in ideal world. Unfortunately the world is money driven and they rather pay compensations to those affected. Vaccines containing glyphosate have been proven dangerous, have they been stopped? No. They still poison our kids with it.

Completely agree!

I've got my weed burner, which doesn't poison the earth I'm weeding and it's actually quite fun.

Hi, does white vinegar really do the trick? Might have to give it a go! Would work out far cheaper than weed killer too surely..?

Not in my experience. You can get horticultural strength stuff, but it is pretty lethal and you have to be careful spraying it. I find elbow grease or fire works best.

Got a legitimate scientific source for your claim re. Vaccines? Because it sounds like hooey from a quick Google.

Glyphosate is nasty, carcinogenic stuff and I won't use it in my garden, but can't find any proper scientific research saying it's present in vaccines in any notable amount.

Plenty of science-y sounding articles...

Well ECHA don't classify it as a carcinogen, I actually quite trust their judgement as I know it to be based on properly conducted science. I'm not saying it's not harmful, but in my view it is not even classified as a suspected carcinogen, yet alone a known one. And as I stated, use it properly and there is very little risk, up to the idiots if they choose to drink it. You will probably find things that have much more potential to do harm to yourself and the environment under your kitchen sink.

Thanks for the reply. Do you use a particular strength? (%).

And where do you buy it from? I don't suppose it's an easy Tesco jobbie? Or is it more a case of buying from a specialist online?

NHS doesn't list half of the ingredients, nor they determine safety. I suggest you look at the manufacturer insert and everything you need to know is listed there. If what they say themselves is a consiracy theory then you need to take it up with them. But I bet you never went as far as reading the insert blindly believing someone else will do it for you.
You see that ppb in brackets under Glyphosate residue, you know what that means right?

Theres no evidence whatsoever that glyphosate causes cancer. Both EU and USA have Declared it safe
Don't use this weedkiller, use glyphosate itself. It's cheaper than this and not the watered down version

I know, I have been stating that it is not carcinogenic. Its not safe that you can just bathe in the stuff, it's still corrosive and harmful to the environment. Hence follow the instructions and precautions and it will do you no harm.

I think its :roll eyes: some people talk about 'impact' of glyphosate then use a gas canister to attack weeds..

As for carcinogenicity, a general article may make people think. Maybe !

ITS CARCINOGENIC!!!!!!!!!!


Eg
It's well known, of course, that certain foods have anti-carcinogenic properties: organosulphur compounds, flavonoids, tannins and carotenoids have been shown to inhibit some forms of cancer. Unfortunately, these anti-carcinogens tend to be found in foods that also contain carcinogens - well-known killers such as broccoli, onions, strawberries and cabbage. Even while these vegetables are preventing you from getting cancer, they are giving you cancer.


Maybe not though. Chuck it with 'Frankenstein' foods etc.
Edited by: "Meathotukdeals" 20th May
Eg 2 from the same article

Nitrates - which can be converted by the human body into carcinogenic nitrosamine compounds - are present in such seemingly inoffensive foods as celery, lettuce, kale and rhubarb...


Do you know (at least when I was into this stuff 25 odd years ago) the conc of nitrates in the plant matter is directly in proportion to the conc of nitrogenous fertiliser in the soil at harvest. Thus your organic high organic matter soil derived foods are poss more carcinogenic than non organic.



Ps I am drunk at the mo so dyor. Yes alcohol,i s carcinogenic too.

And do we know why that was set as it was? It was the limit of detection at the time and set by the EU. Nothing to do with toxicology etc.
