As a child I nearly died in an emerg. room because my father sprayed the grass to kill lawn moths and I laid on it. It was a week before the swelling in my face allowed me to see. http://www.gopetition.com/petition-comment.php?cid=1192955
I have had a nightmare with my pesticide loving neighbour – we have had numerous health issues as he sprays round-up all over the backyard and in all the flower beds several times a year. We can not do anything because Edmonton lacks a by-law. For those of you who care and want to do something like “Pesticide Free Edmonton” on facebook or contact me (Sheryl McCumsey) on there with a message. I am working on this as we have an election this fall and I think we should make it an issue. There are numerous studies published in the last year that make it very clear we need to do something. I believe people are dying.
