Scotts, Trugreen, Chemlawn and cancer – the real truth is their harsh lawn chemicals are causing lethal cancers in cats, dogs and humans!

Lawn chemicals fertilizer cause cancer

Chemlawn and Scotts lawn treatments contain chemicals that are proven to cause cancer in pets and humans!


Many of us live in planned communities, HOA’s (Home Owner Associations) and similar. In these communities it’s a requirement to keep up your lawn and property to a certain level. This usually requires treating your lawn, bushes and plants with fertilizers and pesticides amongst other things.

Regardless of whether you live in a homeowners or planned community or whether you just want to have a green lawn I am sure that you’ve either tried or have been thinking of trying to treat your lawn with various chemicals to include fertilizers and pesticides. There are several big-name companies out there like Scotts lawn care, Trugreen – Chemlawn and others that offer to do these treatments for you for a monthly fee.

Now, if you do the treatments yourself you can read on the sides of the bags and bottles that these chemicals come in as to their actual ingredients really are. They may or may not tell you about the carcinogenic properties of them or the print might be so small that it’s almost not readable to the naked eye. But when you use a lawn fertilizing and pesticides service there is no list of chemicals that they give you and many times they even lie about what they’re spraying on your lawn and plants.

In thousands of lawsuits in every state of America, Chemlawn and Trugreen – Chemlawn have decided to go with quick settlements rather than face ongoing litigation and the possible revelation to the public about how bad their chemicals in treatments really are for pets (Dogs and cats) and humans. So the real number of people that consist of homeowners, next-door neighbors and even the employees at spray the chemicals themselves that come down with all sorts of all sorts cancers (leukemia and other cancers) and disease will never truly be known.

Every day I see one of these Scotts lawn care or Trugreen – Chemlawn trucks driving by my house to spray their lethal chemicals on my neighbors lawns. What’s funny is, even with all the spraying of these terrible chemicals many of which are proven to cause cancer and kill people and pets, and this hot summer there’ll lawns don’t look as good as mine without those sprays.

What is the main difference between my lawn and their lawns? Once a year I purchase enough topsoil to give a very thin coat to my entire lawn. This topsoil has all the nutrients that my lawn needs to look green and healthy and to fight off bugs, weeds and even summer drought. My grass has better and stronger roots and grows thicker due to this topsoil treatment.

This topsoil treatment costs far less than the monthly’s spraying by Scotts or Chemlawn of carcinogenic fertilizers and pesticides.  I found a case on the Internet where the lady was by accident sprayed with the chemicals from one of these trucks.  According to the company they said was just fertilizer and nothing bad.  She got sick and came out all kinds of problems and her doctors tested her blood and found some really nasty pesticides and chemicals in high concentrations in her blood. 

How did they get there if she didn’t drink them?  They weren’t sure but directly through her skin!  So when your neighbors are having companies like Chemlawn and Scotts spray these lethal chemicals all over their lawns don’t think that you’re not breathing it in and absorbing it through your nasal passages and your skin.

As further proof my next-door neighbor had his lawn routinely sprayed by Scotts lawn care services for years and he had three dogs.  Each of these dogs came down with brain and stomach tumors which they all eventually died of.  Now if that is not a proof of a link between these fertilizers and pesticides and lethal cancer then I don’t know what is. 

I believe in transparency and telling the truth.  The truth is the green lawns advertised by Scotts and Chemlawn are not as healthy as they claim them to be.  There are numerous experiments and investigations going on now to determine exactly which chemicals and pesticides cause which cancers and disease.  My recommendation is to not use lawn and fertilizer chemical treatment companies that will not tell you the truth about the chemicals are putting on your lawn.  For further information on this be sure read or check out the following website pages:

    I have been telling people the same thing for years! No one seems to listen or care. Chemlawn and their carcinogenic chemicals are killing people and making millions sick. When is the government going to step in and ban this? Their lawn treatment chemicals are literally killing pets and people alike. This has got to stop.

    My dog died of a brain tumor. I know that it was caused from the harsh chemicals Scotts lawn care put on my neighbors yard. That crap leeched over here – you could smell it really strong after they applied the crap. I know they killed my dog with their crap. Too bad you can’t sue for a dog’s death, else I would!

    im not try to seem harsh but you evidently have not been to any classes about chemicals . If so worried about chemicals might trying not to eat veggies or meat or any thing else . Before you make judgement on any thing get educated about what you are stating alot of products can!!!!! cause cancer alot of oils & hair dyes & many more .

    I can attest to the toxicity of the chemicals that Trugreen is using. I ignored my initial concerns and began to use Trugreen in the spring of 2010. My lawn had received about six treatments ranging from pre-emergent crabgrass prevention to grub control, broadleaf weed control etc. . On August 28 2010 my otherwise healthy 4 year old dog became ill and was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Lymphoma. We sought out a canine oncologist and she endured chemotherapy. Needless to say she did not survive and we do not use their service any longer. I would caution anyone considering using Trugreen to think twice.

    My entire family have had a lawn care service for 20 years.My parent, brothers, and sisters all in seperate households after adult age. They are all dog lovers and all have had dogs to live a very long lifetime. 11, 13, and 16 to be exact. We currently have dogs as well. It wouldn’t bother me if my dog licked the grass after a treatment. The chemicals in food,anti perspirants, etc. are much worse. My advice to you tree hugging, liberal, soccer moms who’s kids are getting the sh*t beat out of them at school because their parents raised them to be pus****. Quit eating, walk around smelling like a big turd, and clean your shi**y looking yard up so I don’t have to look at it.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 2 Thumb down 6

    Keith, I know your story except mine is 2 times over. We just put down a gorgeous all-black German Shepherd named Shade. He got lymphoma January, 2010 when he was only 3!. We put him on chemotherapy but he only lasted until November when he came out of remission. He passed this January.

    3 years ago, we had a Katrina dog named Easy that contracted cancer, again at age 3! We figured it was due to New Orleans until Shade happened. What are the odds of 2 young dogs in a row getting cancer?

    We used Chemlawn for the last 5 years and never thought anything of it. I looked at the history of the area, tested the soil, water runoff, all kinds of things. My wife did see the Chemlawn guy spray toward Shade’s face one day, don’t know why, he was very friendly and had just stepped out for a second, he usually stayed inside when they were here. The cancer showed up 5-6 months later.

    I no longer use them and am doing all organics on my lawn now to make sure it never happens again.

    My daughter died of a brain tumor. She often played in the neighboring yards that were treated with Chemlawn. The experts at Duke said the cause was environmental, not heredity or anything else. I later read about a study in Denver that showed a higher incidence of children developing brain tumors in neighborhoods that used Chemlawn.

    That should be enough to make people stop using it, unless and until the product could be proven safe.
    Don’t experiment with your children.

    I don’t know why people like Chris Moltisanti (a pseudonym for Monsanto?) write such comments.

    Maybe he can explain it to God some day.
