I make it a habit to randomly ask people if they notice these signs. No one pays any attention to them. The pale green color of the signs may have been purposely chosen to avoid attention.
The 'No Bike Riding on Paths' signs are done big and bold in bright orange and placed conspiculously throught the park. But the signs which are required by law to warn people of these harmful pesticides are instead slyly displayed and the smallest possible print used. By right these signs should read: 'Warning! Your Child May Be Born Deformed If You Sit On This Lawn!'

glyphosate ... an article showing how Monsanto is dishonest about the toxicity of their herbicide 'Roundup'.

On Fri Jan 20, 2007, Monsanto was convicted of false advertising of Roundup for presenting Roundup as biodegradable and claiming that it left the soil clean after use. Environmental and consumer rights campaigners brought the case in 2001 on the basis that glyphosate, Roundup's main ingredient, is classed as "dangerous for the environment" and "toxic for aquatic organisms" by the European Union. Monsanto France planned to appeal the verdict at the time.
...On two occasions the United States Environmental Protection Agency has caught scientists deliberately falsifying test results at research laboratories hired by Monsanto to study glyphosate.
