There is rising awareness and demand for organic foods, and less chemicals. This interview with Carey Gillam, author of “Whitewash” goes deep into the science of Monsanto’s roundup, and what it means for you, your family and the future.
Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
I am sensitive to a lot of chemicals, and pesticides are no exception. After hearing Carey talk about what is happening with super weeds and super bugs, it just makes it even more important for me to make choices for my health that don’t include these chemicals. I hope that shows like this can bring more awareness and change the apathy that we have to these chemicals that are causing so much harm. Please make the first step your dinner plate.
