While Ho, Ho, Ho are words we hear a lot this time of year, we know that pesticides are no laughing matter. The EPA considers 60% of all herbicides, 90% of all fungicides, and 30% of all insecticides as potentially cancer-causing. (OTA) Pesticides can produce a wide range of adverse effects on human health including acute neurological toxicity, cancer, and dysfunction of the immune, endocrine, and reproductive systems (National Academy of Sciences). Using Organic lawn care products is just one way to tread lightly on the Earth, and that is a very “nice” thing.
