Terra Verde – The Monsanto Papers

Lee Johnson-Monsanto
In 2018, a San Francisco jury found that Monsanto’s signature products, glyphosate-based herbicides Roundup and Ranger Pro, were associated with Bay Area groundskeeper Dewayne Lee Johnson’s non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Earth Island Journal editor and Terra Verde host Maureen Nandini Mitra talks with investigative journalist Carey Gillam about her new book The Monsanto Papers: Deadly Secrets, Corporate Corruption, and One Man’s Search for Justice. Gillam’s book details the extent of corporate corruption and political influence mongering that enabled the agribusiness giant to sell its toxic herbicides, Roundup and RangerPro, for decades. Gillam’s book offers an inside look at the legal fight that led to the  historic 2018 verdict against the company and an intimate portrait of the plaintiff in the case, Bay Area groundskeeper Dwayne Lee Johnson.
