So what's the case against Monsanto? Robin exhaustively covers a variety of issues. She details the horrific health problems that veterans of the Vietnam War experienced after exposure to Agent Orange, a defoliant produced by Monsanto.
There are countless stories of farm communities affected by DDT, a pesticide now recognized to be highly unsafe to humans. And dairy farmers recount the mutations and severe health problems experienced by some cows treated with bovine growth hormone. In all of these cases, it's somewhat unclear whether there was an concerted effort to conceal the danger of the chemicals, or if no sufficient research was undertaken. But none of Robin's uncovered information looks good for Monsanto.
