    A few years ago, I would have agreed with you...

    My father-in-law was an ornamental horticulture professor at Cal Poly, SLO for many years. In the last 5 years, three of the four other professors that were in the OH department with him have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and my FIL died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma 3 years ago. So including my FIL, a total of 4 professors out of the 5 that were in the department... Roundup was about the only chemical that, according to the label, was safe to spray in the greenhouses without respirators/protective equipment so that's pretty much all they used, but apparently spraying it inside of greenhouses without respirators/protective gear for 20-30 years isn't too good for you.

    Round up is way overpriced and you pay for the name. Home Depot had their own version(don’t know if they still do) that had twice the %(if I remember correctly) of active ingredient than Round Up used and the Home Depot stuff was about 1/2 the price.

    So no home gardeners getting it, I think that's probably a good thing.


    Just go get it at a farm supply and it's half price anyways. 41% glyphosate.

    It has gone up considerably this year, like 50-60%, guess that's not as bad as so.e things.

    Breathing anything for 20 or 30 years inside ain't good for you.

    Yep, I buy the 41% stuff at Tractor Supply for much less than actual Roundup.

    Wow. Sorry about your FIL.

    I know they would not spray 2,4-D in a greenhouse setting but if memory serves me correctly 2,4-D has long been associated with non Hodgins L.

    I was unaware that there was a good statistical link to glyphosate or its' carriers to that disease but then again, I no longer pay much attention to professional journals.

    I like roundup. I use it in my bee yard so I'm not having to string trim around them.
    Monsanto is the devil.
    It just is

    Saw this and bought some yesterday. At the rate I use it, this could last me years.
