Fifty-five years after Rachel Carson in Silent Spring warned about the dangers of DDT and unchecked pesticide use, a former Reuters reporter is raising the red flag about the pesticide treadmill we can’t get off of.
In Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer and the Corruption of Science (Island Press, 2017) investigative journalist Carey Gillam lays bare details about the 40-year push to prominence of the world’s most popular pesticide: glyphosate, known commonly as Monsanto’s Roundup.
Gillam is currently research director at US Right to Know.
Gillam says that glyphosate is the most widely used agrichemical in history – a pesticide so pervasive it’s in our air, our water, our food, and even our own bodies.
