Roundup weedkiller cancer scare!

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/sci...ncer-link.html

Some countries have banned the Roundup brand of weedkiller as it might be a cancer risk.

We had some in the shed, which I disposed of this morning, just in case the report is true!

A friend of mine being helpful used it on weeds on my driveway.
It wasn’t long after that my 11 year old Labrador got cancer.
I asked the vet if the Roundup could have caused it but he said it was only dangerous when wet. That it was ok after it had dried.

I did always wonder but l suppose when your pet dies of cancer, you look for something to blame.

I think mine is Weedol, I'll check later to see what chemicals are in it, thanks for posting that Tara.

Weedol has glyphosate in it, which is supposed to be the problem.

Weedol probably made the announcement.
