    'Common sense tells me to look at what our ancestors eat, drank, done.' However, our ancestors had a shorter life expectancy than we do but I agree with point your making.

    After a few years without chemicals my lawn is maintained with the thousands of worms that are now residing in it. They aerate the lawn for me as well as bring in wildlife. They are fed with all the grass clippings I don't rake up which the hungry buggers devour in a few days. The only thing I have to do is rake down the thousands of piles of nutrient rich worm casings (worm poop) that if left make the surface lumpy when roots grow into them. This in turn fertilizes the whole environment all over again (including the essential symbiotic organisms that they are now selling us in our foods. When my internals need a boost of probiotics I eat a sandwich after gardening with just a rinse of my hands(no soap). No off the shelf product I've seen can introduce the amount/types of SPECIES we need in our digestive tract that a good gulp of spring water (not from a bottle) will provide.

    Common sense tells me to look at what our ancestors eat, drank, done. We did evolve with the dirt and if we remove ourselves from it we lose it's protection.

    I can also walk bare foot and not worry about poisons in my lawn.
