Toxic Fertilizer Enters the Food Chain

This is a story Ms. X feels very strongly should be read by EVERYBODY. That is, everybody that raises animals, gardens or eats food. Did I leave anyone out?

Industrial herbicide taints British soil.

Gardeners across Britain are reaping a bitter harvest of rotten potatoes, withered salads and deformed tomatoes after an industrial herbicide tainted their soil.
The affected gardens and allotments have been contaminated by manure originating from farms where the hormone-based herbicide aminopyralid has been sprayed on fields.

What this article neglects to mention is...what happens to the cows? This stuff can deform a potato and the cow is still safe to eat? What about the cows' calves? What about our kids if we eat this stuff?
