OC Residents Alarmed by Local Herbicide Use Linked to Health Issues

orange county herbicide poisoning

ALISO VIEJO, CA (February 12, 2024)In Aliso Viejo, residents are raising concerns about the health impacts of herbicides, particularly Cheetah Pro, being used in their community. Locals have reported adverse health effects such as headaches, rashes, and chronic fatigue, which they attribute to the chemical’s proximity to their homes and public spaces.


Carolyn McCuan, a resident behind the drive for a Toxic-Free OC, has experienced severe symptoms which she links directly to the herbicides, confirmed by elevated levels of glyphosate in her system. Cheetah Pro, the herbicide in question, contains glufosinate and carries warnings similar to those of Roundup, a chemical that has led to significant legal actions nationwide.


Despite concerns over the Orange County herbicide poisoning issue, the Aliso Viejo Community Association insists that their pesticide use complies with all state and federal regulations, emphasizing their efforts to explore safe and cost-effective alternatives. However, residents like Melissa Christian argue that non-toxic methods of weed removal are available and underutilized.


The community’s unrest is growing as they call for immediate reconsideration of the use of potentially harmful chemicals in their environment. They stress the urgency of protecting public health and are pushing for the adoption of safer, organic alternatives to chemical herbicides.
