Ban Glyphosates in West Linn

Glyphosates or RoundUp have been used for 30+ years on our West Linn City Parks and many individuals are now coming down with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma or Childhood Leukemia.  In an abundance of caution let's ban the use of carcinogenic compounds or toxic chemicals in venues that are supposedly free of anxiety and fears.  The daily allowance of Glyphosates in West Linn is almost five times that of Europe, where Germany and France have banned the product entirely.  Likewise, both Portland Parks and Eugene have banned Glyphosates on all public lands.  The time is now before we have to deal with cancers in a new generation of park attendees. It's the chemical so pervasive it's in the air we breathe, our water, our soil, and even found increasingly in our own bodies. Known as Monsanto's Roundup by consumers, and as glyphosate by scientists, the world's most popular weed killer is clearly labeled as a carcinogen by Proposition 65 in California. For decades it's been touted as safe enough to drink, but a growing body of evidence indicates just the opposite, with research tying the chemical to cancers and a host of other health threats.  Learn more about the deadly chemical at my Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/Gylphosate_Me_Not-104079828366808
