We must stop polluting this earth's environment with crap. Mother Nature doesn't care if we live or kill ourselves. TY Cal for posting noted.

Sadly noted. Ty for the information. The eco-system does not need toxic chemicals and neither do we.

I guess this makes very sad sense - if a substance harms one creature, it's likely that it's going to harm more than one, and it'll probably harm us, too.
