The chemical glyphosate may not be a household word, but products that contain it get used in many households. Glyphosate is the key ingredient in herbicides like Roundup, which makes money for Monsanto and makes environmentalists cringe.

Lisa Arkin from Beyond Toxics and Bridget Doherty from Consumer Safety are our guests.
