It borders on hilarious that the residents of Bristol are, quite literally, full of “piss and vinegar” because their town now reeks of the stuff. That’s because the Bristol City Council decided to conduct a one-year trial during which time glyphosate would be replaced with vinegar, essentially turning the city into one giant salad.
This idea came from the Members in the European Parliament (MEP), which adopted the advice of the EU Commission, which is in the process of deciding whether to restrict the use of glyphosate (banning it for individual use) because of phony concerns about cancer.
Even anti-chemical environmental groups, such as the Pesticide Safe Bristol Alliance are scratching their heads on this one: “The only true trial involved here will be that endured by local residents, as they face a year of weeds growing upon streets and pavements, and the smell of vinegar in unexpected places.”
. . . .
it would be simply wrong not to include part of a University of Maryland study that compared the use of vinegar and glyphosate for purposes of weed control. No comment is needed.
