And sodium chlorate, which was banned because of its toxicity to
humans and its strong oxidising effect, decomposes to sodium chloride
which I am more sanguine about than the metabolites of many of the
approved pesticides.

We all also know that if you were to pour table salt (Sodium chloride)
onto a fresh cut stump that it would kill it.  But it is only approved

Jerry,
          There were a number of chemicals which either had ingredients
changed or are no longer made due to changes in chemical regs and cost of
testing , these were things like renadene (not sure about spelling ) a
repellent for deer and rabbits.
