    Scientific research shows, as reported through EPA’s and Health Canada’s VAST TOXICOLOGY DATABASE, that NO harm will occur when pest control products like 2,4-D are used according to label directions. 

     

    The toxicity of 2,4-D is not very high when compared to TABLE SALT.

    Despite the opposite claims of activists, NO regulatory body in the world classifies 2,4-D as a human carcinogen. 

     

    2,4-D has been used for the control of broad-leaved weeds in the Urban Landscape SINCE 1946.

     

    2,4-D has a 65-YEAR UNBLEMISHED SAFETY RECORD regarding long-term risk to health.

     

    2,4-D is probably THE MOST studied and best understood of ANY chemical  …  not just pesticide  …  in existence. 

     

    Nonetheless, Anti-Pesticide Activists COULD NEVER BE BOTHERED to use the EXTENSIVE TOXICOLOGY DATABASE that is available from either Health Canada or U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

     

    Evidently, these activists prefer to attempt PROFITING from Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION with their own organizations or businesses, at the expense of the Professional Lawn Care Industry. 

     

    2,4-D is SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and will CAUSE NO HARM.

    Please take a look at The Industry Task Force II On 2,4-D Research Data.
