Thank you both. An "ell" was missing at the end. I corrected it.

Thanks Henry...

I do not use chemical fungicides because I have a "Fear of the unknown" so to speak... No one has proven to me one way or another so I error on the side of caution.
That's my decision...
But I can not fault other people who may think differently because really nothing has been proven yet that I know of...

If they can prove the therory to be correct in which your articles speak then no doubt they will ban those types of sprays from the market someday...

I'm not going to argue one way or the other because I do not know the truth yet... So I personally will just continue to error on the side of caution...

The following was stated: "If they can prove the therory to be correct in which your articles speak then no doubt they will ban those types of sprays from the market someday... "

H.Kuska comment. It would be nice if we lived in a perfect world. The following statement appears in a very recent published, reviewed scientific paper. "This inconsistency between scientific fact and industrial claim may be attributed to huge economic interests, which have been found to falsify health risk assessments and delay health policy decisions [41]."

H.Kuska comment. Reference 41 is: "41. European Environment Agency. EEA Report. Copenhagen, Denmark: European Environment Agency; 2013. Late lessons from early warnings: science, precaution, innovation."

Regarding tebuconazole they state: "In fact, 8 formulations out of 9 were clearly on average several hundred times more toxic than their APs, ranging from 2-3 times more toxic for pirimicarb or prochloraz to 1056 times more toxic for tebuconazole. Results were similar for all cell types."

Here is a link that might be useful: link to recent scientific paper
