    Interestingly, chemical weapons like sarin, tabun, and VX gas are organophosphates.  If it helps, think of these nerve agents as "insecticide for humans."

    So important for home gardeners to understand the use of pesticides and what they contain.

    My retired father works at a golf course part time, cuts grass in the mornings. His bosses who are the greens-keepers work with these chemicals all the time. They are both in their early 40's, both have had lymphoma cancer. Coincidence???

    So the containers are hazardous but releasing this into the environment isn't?…..Anybody thinking? Apparently the zombie apocalypse has already happened just not the way you thought.

    Please make the US government to make it illegal to use pesticides!!! Let them use lady bugs or other things that will eat the pest

    Excellent lecture…I'm a golf course greenskeeper and will watch these videos for a good review lesson. You never can have too much training/knowledge in this field of science!

    Various cancers, infertility, gender choices…all related to these toxic chemicals. Unfortunately most people are not trained in environmental toxicology…so they have no background to understand how dangerous these chemicals are. I bet this presenter is on the payroll of chemical companies that make these horrible products.
