I Talked To The Trees But They Stopped Listening
When we are looking at the substances in our homes and on our persons we can forget the others out there somewhere.
Notably, on our own or our neighbour’s gardens, or in the local parks and gardens and other green spaces.
Because we like to control what is there rather than letting nature take its course and we do not have the time or inclination these days to do it by hand so there has been a market created for chemicals to do the job for us.
The trouble is sometimes they do more than we expect or want them to.
The Imprelis herbicide story is a recent one in a long list of questions about the various products used to control plants.
Essentially, what may get onto and into the plants is likely to get onto and into us.
