    Hey guys, Just browsing the net doing some research, I remember someone on this site knows a bit about green guardian... do you know if they have had an LD50 test done? I know they are "exempt" but I was still wondering.

    Or open it up to any organic weed control products that have an LD50 for that matter...

    long blade scythe(tool) 1 that's all it would take bush ax 1, fire thats one for deep green. vinegar, I cant say from experience but, I have seen some folks that drink it.

    maybe this is helpful
    Aquatic toxicity:
    LC50(Fathead minnow,96 hour) > 1429 mg/L
    LC50(Water flea,96 hour) = 1429 mg/L
    LC50(Mosquito fish,48 hour) = 3586 mg/L
    LC50(Golden orfe minnow,48 hour) = 5857 mg/L
    that's for 7% acetic............

    clove oil is supposed to be pretty nasty but my favorite flea spray is almost all clove oil and that has been around for years............

    I think the LD 50 for water inhaled is about 2 gallons or so???

    is the green guardian sugar beet extract???? dont we eat that already with little effect not withstanding obesity


    JD is there a point to this and do you want to share it????

    oh by the way, sugar is toxic at around 35 G /Kg
