‘Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer, and the Corruption of Science’ by Carey Gillam

By Carden Willis

In spring, it is seen as stark brown farm fields amidst the great glowing green. In summer, it follows farm fencerows like a sickly shadow. We may not notice its lingering presence in the parks and playgrounds where our children play. It is not apparent in our waterways or the air that we breathe. We definitely do not taste it in our breads, honey, eggs, Cheerios and beer, nor do we suspect it in our infant formula or even our breastmilk.  But sure enough, Roundup is in and around all of us and present in practically everything we eat.
