    It's on the World Health Organisations probable carcinogens list
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    Just about says it all! Common sense really - but that's another topic

    But I think most guys under 30 won't give a s*** until they have Geoff or Sterlos problem.

    The answer is probably somewhere in the middle. Will we ever know? Probably not. The corporations will keep you in the dark.

    From what I understand Monsanto don't own rights to Glypho anymore. Wouldn't put it past them to be spruiking a new product that is more profitable and probably even more carcinogenic.

    Let's face it. Wouldn't trust anyone these days so if some mob tells you the latest you ripper organic weed killer is safe why would you believe that over past data on glypho? Glypho is cheap and available to all.

    I'm reluctant to use any weed spray now. I used to spray without even asking. People are more worried about there pets than they are about the worker or themselves.

    **** its dry.

    Yeah exactly

    Maybe not as bad as other states but it's dry in Melbourne too...

    I'm more concerned about all the dust we breathe in
    Last couple of years have been wearing dust masks on almost every job... best thing I've done

    I now use these most of the time except when it's wet. >https://wolfsnout.net/

    The elastic stretches and needs replacing but also got quite a few on ebay at a good price

    A bit hard to breathe occasionally when I am blowing hard but that's not often these days

    Ive been using these:

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/20-60x-P...53.m1438.l2649

    Bit annoying but so much better than breathing in crap all day

    Worth switching to wolfsnout?
