A recent episode of the popular health-centric talk show The Doctors brought the issues surrounding Monsanto’s Roundup to light, homing in on many hot topics. Specifically, Roundup’s main ingredient, glyphosate, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) report that deemed the chemical as “probably carcinogenic to humans” were the show’s focus.(1)
While overall discussion about the controversial product was talked about professionally, it was obvious that tension existed when glyphosate’s safety was questioned.
For example, in the audience sat 20-year Monsanto scientist Dr. Donna Farmer, who at the start of the segment said, “I’ve seen those headlines and I know people have lots of questions.” But in a predictable attempt to allay fears by showing that she’s human like the rest of us, she went right for the heartstrings by announcing that, in addition to being a scientist, she’s also a mom. She went for the emotional tug again towards the end of the episode when she declared, “I am extremely, highly confident in this product as a mom and then I can back it up as a scientist.”(1)
