Weedkiller Banned in France Due to 'Probable' Link to Cancer: SEAC Comments


Wigston, Leicester -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2015 -- Monsanto's Roundup weed killer has been banned in France over concerns that it was probable that the chemical could be linked to cancer. The classification was made by the UN which prompted the Health Secretary to ban over the counter sales of the product which was considered carcinogenic. The news comes after increased health concerns over the use of pesticides and other chemicals in gardens used by members of the general public.

It could have implications for gardeners seeking to work on their plots in the current summer season which generally sees the greatest sales in garden supplies and related products. As people seek to improve their front and back yards, health and safety concerns are becoming an increasing factor in how gardeners seek to make their improvements. This prompted the rise of decking and composite decking a number of years ago, as an effective and streamlined alternative to the sometimes complex business of growing plants and lawns in uncertain climates and conditions. It has also led many to declare that decking is now becoming an extension of a particular lifestyle, and becoming the popular choice in suburban areas.

About SEAC Ltd
SEAC Ltd have been trading for over a century in the building and construction industry and are also specialist providers of Fiberon composite decking. They pride themselves on being regular commentators in industry news and a spokesperson had this to say, 'We've noticed people are becoming more concerned about how expensive or time-consuming it can be to tend to a garden as opposed to a decked outdoor space. With work commitments, family and fitting in times to relax in between, it can be an added burden to have to keep in control of a garden with lots of vegetation too. This is why we urge people who can be overwhelmed by the plethora of news regarding various chemicals in gardening equipment, to keep life simple and extend your outdoor space by decking it out. This prevents weeds from growing and you are still able to grow fruit, vegetables, plants and flowers in containers and pots which are controllable and healthy. It also looks wonderful and is a versatile option.'
