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. 

The City of Eugene recently decided to place a moratorium on the use of Roundup on city property, in order to protect public health.  We get into the specifics of the ban and its uses with reps from Beyond Toxics and the group Consumer Safety.  Lisa Arkin from Beyond Toxics and Bridget Doherty from Consumer Safety are our guests.
