Hi Friends,
The Organic Consumer Association's online paper recently ran a blurb about Roundup 
being extremely lethal to amphibians. Apparently the tests were supposed to show 
its effects on algae, but the results were obvious as scientists continued the 
study. Atrazine has also been recently found to be deadly to amphibians. Tadpoles 
are the most affected stage of development in both cases. I would be makeing a leap 
of intelligence to suppose herbicides could be at least partly responsible for the 
decline in amphibians we all have read so much about in the last few years...What 
do you think?
