I use it, but I never treated it like it was harmless.

Also, clean water = more fish :D

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.
