Understorey: Opening the Poison Papers

Wednesday 7th November / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Major tensions have emerged between regulators, science and corporations, especially when it comes to pesticides and GMOs (genetically modified organisms).  Understorey reports on the food and pesticide industry, its complex ingredients filling supermarket shelves and farmers' sheds, and affecting our environment in long-lasting ways.  The newly-available Poison Papers reveals a secret history of poor regulation, research misdirection, and toxic health and environmental effects.  Adrian Glamorgan speaks to Dr Jonathan R Latham, Director of the Poison Papers, about what this database of once-buried documents means for citizens, the scientific community and the environment.  (Image: Jonathan Latham, by A.
