Summary
"In Whitewash, veteran journalist Carey Gillam uncovers one of the most controversial stories in the history of food and agriculture. Gillam explores the global debate over the safety of a pesticide so pervasive that it is found in our cereals, snacks, and even in our urine. Known as Monsanto<U+2019>s Roundup by consumers and as glyphosate by scientists, the world<U+2019>s most popular weed killer is sold as safe enough to drink, but Gillam<U+2019>s research shows that message has been carefully crafted to conceal a host of dangers. Whitewash is more than an exposé about the hazards of one chemical. It<U+2019>s a story of power, politics, and the deadly consequences of putting corporate interests ahead of public safety." -- Provided by publisher
