In The News – Tires Made From Dandelions

As a child I often picked the bright yellow flowers growing in our yard and presented them to my mother with a smile.  She always accepted them graciously and gave me a hug.

These flowers were also fun when they became a puff of billowy seeds.  My sister and I would pick them and blow the seeds toward heaven, positive that they would be picked up by an angel who would grant the wishes we sent along with the seeds.

As an adult and the caretaker of a lawn and garden, I now realize that dandelions are a stubborn weed and very difficult to eradicate.  But scientists are working on a discovery that will redeem the lowly dandelion.  The roots contain a substance that can be used to create rubber!

How many ways can rubber from dandelion be used?  Are there problems to continuing the research on dandelion rubber?
