Weedkiller 'raises risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma by 41%'

It's that time of year where many are spraying non-Hodgkin lymphoma on their lawns and concrete cracks. Numerous studies folks. This isn't a theory, it's a fact that's paying out billions in injuries. Use alternatives out of respect for your neighbors if not yourself.

Study says evidence ‘supports link’ between exposure to glyphosate and increased risk

A study conducted by the Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine found that lymphoma in animals directly correlated with some lawn care chemicals. Specifically, products that included 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid. 2 4-D is an endocrine-disrupting chemical, meant to kill off clovers and dandelions. When it’s absorbed into a dog’s body, it targets the thyroid and keeps the body from producing hormones that regulate normal functions such as white blood cell production.

We've started a new tradition at dinnertime of chatting about all of the farmers that have produced the food that we are about to eat and saying thank you to them. Grateful for this video to show to my own children so they can have some images in their minds of the effort food requires.

And keeping nature in your communities is something that you have to take a role in. You can’t let developers be the only people that show up to the councils and hearings. They’re never going to vote for the trees.

A remarkable Danish study underscores the importance of keeping nature in our cities and our lives.
