Mow ed,<p>I, like Eric grew up on a farm. My dad got skin cancer on his neck when he was 43. The result of many years working in the sun. He did wear skin screen and hats. He also got prostrate cancer when he was 53 which killed him by the age of 54. A lot of us in the family wonder if it was due to years of exposure to chemicals like Roundup and other sprays. He used to spray with a open cab tractor pulling a 100' sprayer. Not good, lot's of sun and lots of spray drift. When I took over on the farm. That was the first thing I did differently. I replaced the old Oliver open cab tractor with a 7520 JD with cab to pull the sprayer. I believe protecting oneself is very important.
