“Today, everyone who eats risks Gysphophae exposure! “ Author of Whitewash, Gillam uncovers one of the most controversial stories in the history of food and agriculture, exposing new evidence of corporate influence in our food supply. Known as Monsanto’s Roundup by consumers, and as glyphosate by scientists, the world’s most popular weed killer is used everywhere from backyard gardens to golf courses to millions of acres of farmland.
For decades, Monsanto’s Roundup has been promoted as harmless enough to drink yet, a growing body of evidence indicates just the opposite, with research tying the chemical to cancers and a host of other health threats. It’s the herbicide on our dinner plates, a chemical so pervasive it’s in the air we breathe, our water, our soil, and even found increasingly in our bodies.
A veteran journalist, researcher, and writer with more than 25 years of experience in the news industry covering corporate America. Since 1998, Gillam’s work has focused on digging into the big business of food and agriculture. As a former senior correspondent for Reuters’ international news service, and current research director for consumer group U.S. Right to Know, She specializes in finding the story behind the spin, uncovering both the risks and rewards of the evolving new age of agriculture.
