My neighbors have been known to complain about the weeds in our lawn. When we arrived to the area many years ago, with many kids, we decided to never treat our lawn as the kids run barefoot through the grass frequently.
More data is pointing to the cancer causing effect of lawn chemicals.
Our next door neighbor has a perfectly manicured lawn so it was with great sadness that he died of cancer rapidly at a young age: obviouosly it was not just the perfect lawn that did him in—-or was it?
More lawsuits are presenting against these companies.
As a surgeon I vote for more weeds and less cancer risk.
(As an aside: the Gerson diet (ie an “anticancer” diet has for years told patients to avoid any chemicals on their lawn, in their house, near the water supply, etc. Dr. Gerson even told patients to not color their hair nor use make up and only use baking soda and vinegar to wash clothes, and avoid toothpaste with Fluoride…)
