Proof that Humans are Not the Smartest Animal

When I observe grazing animals I note that they usually perfer to eat dandelions over grass. On the other hand people spend hundreds of dollars, and hundreds of hours, trying to irradiate dandelions from their yard.

Did you know that dandelions were once a popular food crop and have many health benefits (certain types are better tasting than others, and all taste better before the flowers bloom).

People have been brainwashed by the companies that sell weed poisons. Brainwashed enough to use chemicals on our lawns rather than just to live with the yellow invading flowers. We would rather pour toxins on our lawn than live with a plant that has more nutritional value than grass! These toxins run off every time it rains, they go into our rivers, lakes, and eventually our oceans, potentially damaging reefs. Bit by bit we are damaging the environment simply because we have become anal about dandelion control.

Just yesterday there was a commercial on the radio alerting people in the city to report neighbors who have too many weeds! You have got to be kidding me!

Seriously how stupid can humans be?

I have the kids go out in the spring and pull dandelions by the roots. We wash and take off the leaves for salads and freeze the roots to use for tea when someone gets constipated.
