The non-agricultural sector uses approximately 89 million pounds of Weed and Feed (combination herbicide-fertilizers) products annually for gardens, lawns, parks, recreational fields, and playgrounds.  The two most common active ingredients in these Weed and Feed products of glyphosate and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) pose a number of human health risks.  This white paper takes an in-depth look at these two chemicals and the neurological, physical, hormonal, reproductive, and respiratory disorders and illnesses linked to their use.
