This stuff has been used by all Council Authorities in the UK for years as weedkiller for years.

This stuff is deadly! Please don't buy!

That poor man was exposed to an awful lot of it.

I'm always super cautious with weedkiller - cover up, spray it then back in the house, strip, clothes in machine and me in the shower. I also only use it rarely for things it would be very difficult to get rid of otherwise. But even people who use it less carefully in their garden are unlikely to get anywhere near as much exposure as the man in this case, and a huge amount of things are potentially carcinogenic if you're exposed to enough of them.

Just saying we don't all need to panic.

The jury said they agreed with the man who said it causes cancer.

One doctor as opposed to many who haven't. Also being drenched in it twice does not strike me as proper use.

Would you expect a petrol station to be liable if you poured petrol over yourself and got ill?
