My uncle has a very interesting theory,
Yeah, I used to have uncles that just made things up without evidence.
My uncle used to do the roadside spraying, and noticed that many more people struggled with allergies when he stopped. I think that there's some smoke and potentially fire to this theory.
It might sound unbelievable to attribute "roadside weeds" to allergy issues, but the reality is that the vast majority of weeds are roadside. They don't thrive in forests. They are typically destroyed in farmer's fields. I'd dare to say that 95% of Ontario falls under those two categories, and they obviously don't grow in lakes (at least not the same weeds). Roadside or near proximity to roads are where weeds thrive.
My head instantly clears up upon crossing into Detroit. Once back in Windsor my head feels like it's inside a vice within an hour.
I think that it's the same approach that a scientist uses for anything. Theory based on sporadic changes or parts of evidence and then prove theory.
I do have an aunt (completely unrelated to said uncle) who was born and raised in Ontario. Moved to North Carolina, lived there for the bulk of her life, and recently came back to visit Ontario for the first time in 20 years last spring. She had never experienced much in the way of allergies and was absolutely floored by how miserable she was during her visit. There's obviously something oppressive going on here.
