Whitewash has been written by Carey Gillam an ex-Reuters journalist who covered agriculture in the US for nearly 20 years. She fell foul of Monsanto as she covered the whole picture and not just the bits they wanted exposed. They continually complained about her to Reuters. The editors changed and no longer supported her. She now works with US Right to Know.
“Whitewash reads like a mystery novel, as Gillam skillfully uncovers Monsanto’s secretive strategies to convince countries around the world that its Roundup products were safe. The book unravels a tapestry of pesticide industry tricks to manipulate the scientific truths about their products while placing profits above human health and the environment. As someone who has experienced similar actions by corporations firsthand in my work far too often, I am hopeful that Carey’s book will be a wake-up call for more transparency about the dangers surrounding many chemicals in the marketplace.”
