Frog

Frog princes become princesses

In the United States 36 million kilograms of the herbicide atrazine are used on corn and sorghum annually. Research shows however, that atrazine interferes with hormones like oestrogen and testosterone in fish, amphibians, birds, reptiles and in human cell lines in the lab. This latest research shows that atrazine causes 75 per cent of adult male frogs exposed to it to become infertile. A further ten per cent of the males are turned into females. These “new” females can mate with males but all of their offspring are male. This can skew sex ratios so badly in a given frog populations that it can be wiped out. Atrazine is not available for home or industrial use in Australia but is used in agriculture. The European Union bars atrazine use. In the United States the Environmental Protection Agency is reviewing its regulations on use of the herbicide.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
