S&F Great find.

Kinda got me thinking though...

They're putting that stuff on all kinds of fruit and ultimately we're eating some of it. No wonder we're all getting fatter & fatter. Maybe one of these days when I'm feeling especially bloated, I'll hold my breath and give a wee grunt to pass wind and....and......

good find


On a serious note, maybe they'll learn from this and not spray their crops with so many
different chemicals. Somehow I doubt it though. When there's money to be made some
people will do lots of things they shouldn't.

And an Australian Governement document pdf on forchlorfenuron and its safety etc...

Evaluation of the new active
FORCHLORFENURON in the product SITOFEX 10 EC PLANT GROWTH REGULATOR [apvma.gov.au]


Personal Disclosure: I wonder if Monsanto has anything to do with this. Or even the petrochemical companies that produce it for the agricultural markets???

According to the Xinhua news agency, 20 farmers in a village in Jiangsu province planted IMPORTED SEEDS FROM JAPAN, with 10 households saying their watermelons began exploding last month.

I wonder when they were imported from JAPAN?

I hope the farmers all washed their hands REALLY GOOD after spraying that stuff and BEFORE hitting the urinal, else something else might explode.

They should call the Chemical growth enhancer "Gallagher."
Sorry, that was a dumb joke.
