There's going to be a lot of cancer in the Midwest in the coming years.

Ecosteading is about down-scaling the management of land enough to do it ecologically. The problem with owning too much fertile land to manage ecologically is apparent with these maps and charts: It seems Midwesterners favorite go-to chemical treatment for their swaths of crop land -- Glyphosate, a cancerous chemical they apply liberally to everything -- is being used excessively.

It shouldn't be used at all!

Now with all the flooding in the Midwest, where people use more the Glyphosate per capita than anywhere else, these lines blur and your neighbor's use of poison affect you too. Cancer spreads in more ways than one.
