What is the best way to control weeds?

I've been following the news about Glyphosate, and weed control in general. In the last few weeks, the nationals included an item on the use of ‘Vinegar’ for weed control in Bristol. Apparently the residents were not impressed with the smell.

I am all for looking at alternatives but surely they thought about this before using? Glyphosate, or Round Up as I know it for garden use, has been scientifically proved to be safe and with no health issues.

On glyphosate, a recent discussion with a work colleague who indicated recently that he would not use pesticides. On questioning, I found out he used Round Up, purchased from a Garden Centre, and slug pellets. He was unaware Round Up included glyphosate and both were in fact chemical pesticides.
