Carey Gillam was born in Kansas. She has spent time with row crop farmers, ranchers, vegetable growers and orchard operators from the Dakotas to Texas, and from California to the Southeast.
She has been welcomed inside the high-tech laboratories, greenhouses and corporate offices of some of the largest U.S. agribusinesses.
And she has spent countless hours interviewing key U.S. regulators, lawmakers, and scientists.
Her book, Whitewash, is about pesticides and coverups.
