- PCBs — One of the 12 persistent organic pollutants (POPs), which affect human and animal fertility.
- 2,4,5 T & 2,4-D — Components of Agent Orange which was used by the US military during the Vietnam war and continues to be a major cause of birth defects and cancers.
- Lasso — An herbicide now banned in Europe.
- Roundup — The most widely used herbicide in the world. The active ingredient, glyphosate, has been found to be “probably carcinogenic” by the World Health Organization.
