Is it the roundup brand stuff? Or Glysophate in general?? I churn out plenty of it on my block...

Glyphosate is the issue ... but Roundup possibly worse because they add salts to it that make it work better.

I am careful these days, I don't care if a doctor says something is safe because one of their popular anti-cholesterol drugs made me sick.

Now better, but I carefully research all drugs and chemicals before using them.

Glyphosate is already in our food, so best not to get more via breathing spray or skin contact.

Well it's not good for the manufacturer either apparently. :D
