Weeds in vegetable garden

Is there a safe weed killer for a vegetable garden? If not what is the best way to keep them under control?
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest

The best way to keep weeds at bay in a vegetable garden is by hoeing and/or by mulching with compost, old straw, or newspapers. There is no herbicide I'd recommend for a food garden."
