Are you feeling brain damaged? It could be 'Roundup' herbicide that you put down on those pesky weeds in your lawn. People around here use it like it is a deterrent to demon possession.

If the millionaires next door use it, well then everyone should use it. Goddamn!
At article: ... EXCERPT | " ... Here we report a patient with parkinsonism following chronic occupational exposure to glyphosate. A previously healthy 44- year-old woman presented with rigidity, slowness and resting tremor in all four limbs with no impairment of short-term memory, after sustaining long term chemical exposure to glyphosate for 3 years as a worker in a chemical factory. The chemical plant produced a range of herbicides including: glyphosate, gibberellins, and dimethyl hydrogen phosphite; however, the patient worked exclusively in the glyphosate production division. She only wore basic protection such as gloves or a face mask for 50 h each week in the plant where glyphosate vapor was generated. She frequently felt weak. Two months before she came to our clinic, she had experienced severe dizziness and blurred vision. ... "Is your hand shaking; is your finger numb? Have you been laying down 'Roundup' for the past ten years or more? Did you wear gloves and protective clothing when you sprayed the stuff all over the place? Did you wear a protective aspirator while you exposed your family, your neighbors and their pets to your mad induced brutal attacks on weeds and unwanted grass?
