My partner was obseessed with his lawn. Against my wishes, he used them heartily and very regularly without hesitation. Our three year old dog was overly exposed to these chemicals and contracted cancer of the spleen. We have not used pesticides since and have found great alternatives. Our lawn looks fine, our new dog is healthier for it and so are we.
Anyone can get by without using pesticides-including parks and golf courses. Our health is most important. Let’s get with the program. It is overdue.
I fully support the ban on all use of pesticides throughout the province of
Ontario. As an very serious environmentalist who lives lightly on the planet and who cares
deeply about the serious effects of climate change, I feel that the continual
use of pesticides only speeds up the negative effects of global warming.
Spraying poison on natural living plants and organisms not only has detrimental
effects on those living entities, but there birds, pets, wildlife and useful
insects are poisoned as well. Pesticides leach into the earth causing it to
remain poisoned for years to come. Pesticides drain into our waterways
poisoning fish, marine life and our drinking water. Pesticides are carcinogens
to all life. Personally, I wish they had never ever been created. Their removal
from existence is long overdue.
oh Green Living… where have you gone? It’s been too long since a post!
